Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,306 members


I just recently had an unexpected subtotal collectomy surgery and now I have an illeostomy bag. Just looking to talk to people that had the same type of surgery. All of this is new to me. I’m just trying to get used to the new lifestyle with having the illeostomy bag and the specific diet that goes with it. Just wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions for me? I would appreciate any feedback. I read different things online about food to stay away from but just wondering if people could share what foods for sure didn’t work for them. I really don’t want to cause a blockage. And was wondering if anybody was able to drink caffeine or soda that have the same condition as me?
