Ok my stoma nurse came the other day and she said "don't eat root vegetables like carrots etc".....or did she say you can eat root veggies? but not things like cabbage and broccoli.  What about peas? 
 
Chocolates, now this is important..it was my birthday and I got a box of chocolates, can I eat the ones with nuts in? haha see a very important question.  Does not eating nuts mean all nuts like pecan nuts, walnuts or just peanuts? 
 
I'm sorry for silly questions but I'm so new to this and am afraid of having a dreaded blockage.
 
(oh I have crohns disease and now a loop ileostomy)
 
Thanks smilewinkgrin

I eat everything in moderation, chew it well, and drink plenty of water with my meals. Blockages are usually caused by scar tissue (adhesions) or a narrowing of the small intestine. Since cooked veggies are easier to digest than raw ones, you might want to start out by cooking them first, and then introduce raw ones later. Enjoy those chocolates, too! smilewinkgrin
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)

The not eating stuff like that is usually just applied for the first 6 weeks or so after the surgery.
I choose not to eat carrots very often, cause they come out exactly like they went in and i think it's gross. And i don't eat nuts either, but alot of people do with no problems!
so like Ce-Ce said, chew alot, and try a new food one at a time, to see how it goes for you.
