I was wondering if anyone else has trouble with low magnesium. I had an emergency ileostomy 7 weeks ago. I take imodium daily to combat too much output, which is mostly liquid. I am getting weekly IV fluids to help with dehydration. For the 3rd week in a row my magnesium was low. I am not very adventurous with my food choices yet since the surgery is so recent. Has anyone else experienced this? Any easy digestible food recommendations?
I should add that in August I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (from chemo I assume but my doctor denies) so I am also supposed to be on a low sodium diet. No gatorade or pedialyte.
I've learned so much from this forum in just the couple weeks since I've joined. I appreciate everyone sharing! And thanks in advance for any advice.
