Addendum:  Chew it up real good.  Don't overdo on the fries.  I find that potatoes in most every guise thickens me up, but not so much that it keeps me from eating them.  Enjoy.

Same with potatoes. 🥔🍟 Definitely thicken things up.

I would be cautious if your burger has tomato, lettuce, or relish on it.  Make sure you chew really well, and wash it down with lots of fluids.  Enjoy!

Hell Yes!

About the same time after ileo surgery that's exactly the food I craved too!  Or to be precise, a double bacon and cheeseburger, fries AND a serve of onion rings washed down with a chocolate thickshake! 

Congratulations on getting your appetite back, that's one of the best feelings ever. 

Bon appetit!

I have an ileolstomy since 2012 - 04 - 20, and I eat everything, however due to problems with my teeth (due to 6 molnths of radiation) I use cashews etc. in a smoolthie in a blender.
The key is tol drink lolts olf fluids (mostly water), never have had dehydratioln issues, even tholugh several medicines (diabetes, blooldpresure) dol cause dehydration.
I gave up being a paid member, so I can only comment. You can message me if you like.
