I had my colon removed in July 2022 and reversal (ileorectal anastomosis) November 2022. Developed an ileus after the reversal. So NOT fun. Been struggling with wanting to eat for a while now. My body doesn't tolerate applesauce, but lately I've been liking cheeseburgers 🤷🏻♀️. I can't think of a raw fruit or veggie my body has tolerated well-oh except bananas and small amounts of romaine lettuce. My general GI Dr ran some tests in March and thinks my small intestine is already doing a good job learning to absorb more and take over things the colon used to do. My sil is making a broccoli salad for Easter and it's something I used to like… but I don't know about raw broccoli?? Is that always a no go after no more colon?
