What changes you need to make

What changes do you need to make in the way you eat after a colostomy?

Hello mari85,

Is your colostomy new? That is the only time I had to make any changes. Now that it's been more than 10 years I just watch what I eat. Some foods make things less desirable than other foods.

Mari,

 

I have an colostomy rather than a colostomy.  The only time I had a blockage was when I ate a Lot of peanuts with out chewing them well.  I used a turkey baster for some water irrigation and everything was fine

I do not eat a lot of pineapple with out chewing well, same for any roughage.  Not because of blockage issues but because it tends to make the faceplate of my appliance comes off.

 

I have never had any exercise related issues.  I did row for many years, which meant I wore a unitary, I learned, no eAting for 12 hours prior to putting on a uni.  Full is ostomy pouches and unis do not mix Smile

 

Hope this helps.

 

Send me a note if you have any questions.

I started with bland foods and tried different things until I had tried just about everything I regularly eat. Fortunately I found that I tolerate everything without issue. I have a end colostomy with the majority of my colon intact. The less colon you have the more likely you are going to have some issues with some foods.
