The doctor just called and said that I have mild ileus and should eat a soft diet.  Any suggestions on what to eat besides mashed potatoes and jello?  Ice cream and yogurt are out  cry .

Google the low residue diet and see if that helps. Big hugs!!

I can usually handle plain white fish, eggs, white toast, turkey, chicken, rice, pasta, broth. Think standard comfort food.

 I also was just diagnosed with mild ileus and although it's not described as Crohns Disease, I was told to just drink plenty of liquids (Apple Juice) and I can also have chicken and beef broth and chicken noodle soups but need to cut up the noodles.  It appears I  have to go without solid food for another 4 days to get my intestines time to relax and heal.  This I can do, but my doctor said that I was misdiagnosed at the ER and given medicine to take that do not help but hinder my chance of getting better.   Everyone thought it was constipation, just glad I have a real diagnosis and I won't stress about it anymore.  Hope this helps. rolleyes

i had ileus for a few weeks when i had c diff. my doctors had me on an all liquid diet until it went away. it was very painful so i think the bowel rest helped.

chris, it's a bacterial infection in your gut. it creates toxins and spores that eat away at the colon tissue. super brutal! it's most common among older adults and IBD patients because our bacteria is so screwed up anyway.
