Weight gain after ileostomy

Posted by christine108, on Fri Apr 06, 2012 7:16 pm
I also gained some weight after the ostomy surgery, but that was some years ago, and now I find that my weight has more to do with general diet and exercise than anything else.
I try to limit sweets as much as possible (except in the case of Emergency Chocolate!), and also became vegetarian two years ago, and have lost weight.  I don't exercise as much as I should, but find that walking helps and any little thing, like using the stairs more.  If that doesn't help you, I think you'll have to consult your doctor.
Good luck.
