iv just read on a post that someone ate a salad sandwich, i would love to eat salad,
|wow thanks everyone, im going shopping in the morning and will buy salad stuff, i will try a little and see how i go on,
oh my stoma nurse said i cant eat any thing raw because my body cant digest it now and it will cause blockages,
forgot to ask about mushrooms she said no to them also,
PS IV HAD ALL MY COLON TAKEN OUT. I HAVE AN ILEOSTOMY.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE,
|hi i also agree with everyone that you could try things slowly and see how you go. i had colon cancer which is why i had most of my colon removed and have recenty been changing my diet to include a lot of ant-cancer foods this includes lots of veg and fruit. had raspberries yesterday and was ok with them. i think it is important to stay healthy and eat healthy foods so i'm glad you got such a positive response here and good advice. good luck
|I've been wondering about lettuce, not had it in nearly 5 years, and eat other salad foods including radish, and spring onions, we grow our own veg in a small way, so feel obliged to eat them too!
The only thing I've had a blockage with, is a slice of mushroom, which became stuck for several hours, scary! now I grate them, and had no more trouble. If you eat beetroot, don't worry that you are bleeding to death, it's just the colour going through, very quickly too!!
A Happy New Year to you all, may you have a good and healthy 2011, and a big thankyou for such wonderful friends on this site.
|There is really only 1 rule with an Ileostomy. Trial and error. try and eat everything and you will work out pretty quickly what you can and can't eat. I shouldnt eat peanuts but i do. they block me big time. just as it's been said in the posts, lotsa water. You are meant to have a better lease of life after surgery not be bound to the whims of some outrageous diet.|
the lesson here is that Ostomates KNOW it all....Because we live it on a daily basis..........While doctors think they know it all they dont, and WOCN 's try and are our best advocate in our journey, they too dont know it all. And lastly it is us........all of us on this forum where all the answers you could ever hope for are.........There is more absolute truths on here than you can ever find from any medical person.....PERIOD
