Tuna fish is ok to eat  won't cause any problems...it's bit smelly when emptying but so is a lot of food don't let that stop you enjoying it

I have a Colostomy but have no problems with tuna! Have tuna salad on crackers every day for lunch.

Hello Gardengirl.

I eat tuna regularly both from the can and 'fresh'(if that's not a contridiction in terms)  I like it very much and have never come to any harm eating it.

However, I do have recurring and increasing amounts of 'indigestable' guilt about the way that some of the tuna is treated before it dies, but that is a different story!

Best wishes

Bill

Do you have an ileostomy? How long have you had it?

Hi

I have an Ileostomy and enjoy Tuna Fish in salads or sandwiches and it never smells when emptying.

I love canned Salmon as well but can't eat it because  of the strong fish small which hangs on for days when emptying.  Probably because the tuna is packed in water and salmon has a lot of oils.

Hi Gardengirl.  I am 4 yrs post loop ileo and tuna fish is fine with my stoma.  I'm a pescetarian so seafood is my 'meat'.
