Hi. I am new to this group. My son is 26, he is scheduled for completion protectomy surgery in a few weeks time. Last March he had sub total 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... loose some weight as healing will improve post surgery and eat accordingly (because of my sons liver enzymes have been elevated)
2... he also said to make sure his intake of protein is high.
I was wanting start juicing for him to ensure he is getting all nutrients and as much proteins possible leading up to surgery.
Please help me in what vegies are high in Protien and safe for ileostomy? Ive read that many cause gas etc and have also read that appliances like the nutri- bullet are not the thing to use as they pulverise the fruit/veggies the fibre not extracting it. I would really appreciate some insight.
