Join the Largest Ostomy Community


Going to have illeostomy surgery within the next few weeks, and all I can think about is what I can eat, OR not eat! I seem to be obsessing over this, and keep wondering if I have to give up the foods I love, or just have to do that for a few weeks. Looking for just about any information on this subject, as this is all new to me, and am happy to have found a site with people going thru the same situation. Sounds weird, but I am happy to be here, so I know that I am not alone!
