I have a ileostomy and diabetic this all happened at the same time because of a pancreas problem, and I am having problems with what kind of foods I can eat with out causing painful gas or blockage, both end up putting me in the hospital, this all started 4 years ago and I'm still having surgeries and am in a hospital bed in my house, I think I may have a little bit of blockage from scar tissue and a small kink in part of my small intestine, between the 2 there isn't a whole lot of food options, I preferred being on tpn for the 2 years I didn't have to eat or drink anything and had 0 bowel problems.
