Hi. I am new to this group. My son is 26, he is scheduled for completion proctectomy surgery in a few weeks' time. Last March he had subtotal colectomy and end ileostomy. His sigmoid was too inflamed to be removed, which is what they are removing and the rectum.
His surgeon gave 2 bits of advice.
1... lose some weight as healing will improve post-surgery and eat accordingly (because of my son's liver enzymes have been elevated)
2... he also said to make sure his intake of protein is high.
I was wanting to start juicing for him to ensure he is getting all nutrients and as much protein as possible leading up to surgery.
Please help me in what veggies are high in protein and safe for ileostomy? I've read that many cause gas, etc., and have also read that appliances like the NutriBullet are not the thing to use as they pulverize the fruit/veggies, not extracting the fiber. I would really appreciate some insight.
