I’m 6 weeks out from temp Ileostomy (laparoscopic) surgery and feel great. I’ve been given the green light from my surgeon to hit the gym and eat whatever I want.
I’ve been eating pretty unhealthy without fruits and veggies in my life. Mainly burgers and fries, tacos, tons of chips, cookies, etc. haha. It will be nice to get some green back in my diet.
I’m curious. The surgeon also said I can have alcoholic drinks. (beer is my drink of choice pre surgery) I know everyone is different, but I’ve never experienced dehydration or liquid output even if I don’t drink a lot of water, and eat like crap. Not really sure why.
im definitely going to try beer and see what happens, but I’m curious if anyone on here has similar plumbing??? Basically I feel like I can eat and drink whatever and my output stays pretty consistent (thick) I even eat very large meals without issue.
I also heard you can get more hungover? I saw a trick to eat marshmallow before you drink to create a temp blockage so it doesn’t fly through you??? Thoughts???
how else will you know your limits if you don’t push them? 😅
