Have a drink with it. Beer

 

Got to love the pizza, 

Cplumber is correct when it comes to introducing new foods back into your diet. Start small on the amount and chew, chew, chew.  This should go for each new thing that way if it gives you a issue at lease it was not a large amount and will work its way through. 

Be careful on crispy foods like chips and things that are hard for the body to past through because they do not absorb liquid to soften them when digesting. 

Recovery time for each person is different and depending on the extent of surgery you had might very on your recovery time and how soon you can start introducing new things back into your diet.

Remember to start small.

Thank you good to know 


 

Just watch out for crispy crust . At first I would avoid much of the crust if crispy . Eat it in Shifts ....Don't wolf down the whole thing  without coming up for air !!  As the other people said   , drink lots of liquids  during and after . I find it helps if I can get flat afterwords , stretch out on the couch for an hour . 

All the best and enjoy

Greetings Magoo! I thought it was a me thing because I digest my meals easier if I lie down after eating. Is this a thing? I'm interested to know if others find lying down helpful.

Laying down after eating ...... Zzzzzzzzzz

 

Chen, you should be ok to eat some pizza. But as mentioned above, the toppings is generally where you can run into issues. I personally eat small amounts of mushrooms, green peppers, black olives. I remove most of these from the pizza if my family orders with these toppings.

Yeasaa get the feet up and stretch out   so you are not sitting in a bent over position , as you are when sitting . A little walk helps too.

Thats for sure, drank a bottle of V8 and it came out just like it went in!! Lol

 

Like everyone said above, little at a time, chew, chew, chew some more, I was scared at first too, didn’t want to get a blockage… its been 3 months since I had my life saving ileostomy, and I have had most of what I use to eat … except corn, nuts, and raw vegetables that I have not tried yet… still a little hesitant, but this past weekend I had a Subway footlong Turkey with everything, went well, I think I had my first piece of Pizza about 7 weeks after, but it was just meat and cheese, I just made sure to chew the hell out of it, and fluids!
