Posted by Nobagjerz, on Wed Mar 06, 2019 4:20 am

hello sweetheart I’m ileostomy and love the color red on women.i only have one meal mid day graz on granola.your system slows down if you’re input slows your timing slows. I go once or twice a day very little. I stay moving around here all day long.i keep a hand full of toy let paper over my stoma to water cleanse the best.the bags gave me a red ring problem from the glues to your skin.the more you eat the more you go.kemo looking back at you from Baltimore Maryland

Try eating bananas. They fill you up and are easy on the stomach. I also can't eat much raw fruit as it goes straight through and apple skin and orange pith are really hard to chew up so can cause a blockage. But bananas are fine, I eat one every day and no problems at all. Good luck and remember chew everything really well and drink lots of water Smile

Hi from Baltimore.bananas are the antidote to the kemo bananas that have just slightly turned yellow have the most healthy benefit.when they turn yellow they loose their enzymes and they turn to sweet and sticky not good. Monkeys and gorillas eat the green bananas with just a little yellow up by the stems.try one the younger chimps eat the yellow because the sugar.sugar makes your stools lose and sticky.once you tasted a solid meaty green banana that is just starting a get sweet you won’t eat any yellow bananas again.i eat a lot of granola V8 juice cheese and no red meat stakes are not good .hope things are good for you in your part of the world.kemo from Baltimore

My go-to snack is peeled and sliced apple wedges dipped in strawberry or blueberry yogurt. Yum...

After 4years and 4 major operations and having a illiostomy 2 year's I have found the foods that I digest and those I dont, I am obviously a meat eater and not a grass grazer , I find raw fruits and cooked veg don't digest plus all the usual nuts , mushroom, sweetcorn, etc . I get round the fruit by drinking fruit smoothies and vegetables cooked well soft and mashed or liquidiser and made into a nice gravy . But like everyone says the answer to eating most things is chew chew chew after a while it becomes normal to chew everything to pulp , I was told by my stoma team enjoy most things in moderation and chew chew chew

It will be two years in July since my colon was removed. I can feel very hungry at times, I eat more protein but I also eat anything and everything. Some times I think the hunger is the need for more fluids. I take imodium everyday but I have not really had any issues regarding things I can not eat. I think people are scared into believing their diet will be so very restricted they will not enjoy things they ate all their lives, unless you try things you will never known.

Sound like me. I ate an apple and got a blockage that hospitalized me for a week. And then pineapple did the same but for three days. And I process food suuuppper fast like 20 minutes fast. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread. I put peanut butter on thick.
