I have had my ileostomy for about 14 years during which I have had many of those disastrous nights that we all dread – the 3 am shower! However, we manage to survive through them but my wife and I are keen to introduce more legumes, particularly beans, into our diet. Being mindful of the kid’s rhyme:
Beans, beans, good for the heart,
The more you eat, the more you fart
we’re wondering if anyone can suggest which type of beans (if any) produce less gas and which produce more. I have found that it is the gas that fills up the bag and is often the cause of those middle of the night disasters!
