Hi Victoria yes I take lactose pills if I eat any dairy, I also take a beano for gas, I eat all those foods you mention but can only eat half of a banana at a time as they make me feel bloated.

2019Puppyluv56I love bananas and gave them up until recently. They do produce way too much gas. I have not taken any kind of medication for the gas but wanted to pick up some gas x and just forget to. I have used it in the past, years ago and before an Ostomy and it always worked well. As for milk, I drink Lactaid. The 2% actually takes like whole milk and it stays fresh for much longer than regular milk! If you find something that works really well, please let us know!! Always open to try new stuff! Puppyluv

Bear hunter,

You can learn so much here! If it can happen, it has happen to an Ostomate. Our Ostomy care physicians and nurses have never had an Ostomy. (?or rarely anyway) so I choose to listen to my friends on here! No subject is taboo and there are many options to try! I have found what works well for me from the great advise on here!

interesting comments. I no longer have a large intestine. Permanent ilio...gas in the bag is always an issue. I'm just happy I can eat anything. When u say bloated, you're talking about your stomach? Right? And gas as gas in bag? Not through the other end, right? People have different tolerances to food. I love milk. Tried them all and came back to whole milk. Re: Bananas? Never thought they gave issues. I eat one day. Eventually you will know what works and doesn't. I dont vary much from diet. Kinda boring diet but knowing I CAN eat anything is a relief. sorry cant help more on bloating issue.
