Okay I know I keep asking about the kinds of food I can eat but I always seem to find myself making rationalizations for soft foods even though they appear on the DO NOT EAT list that my surgeons and nurses gave me. What is so wrong with eating soft refried beans?? I will expect gas. That's fine. Refried beans give normal digestive systems gas right, so why should a little gas scare me? Is that the only reason why to stay away from it after having the j pouch surgery done 2 weeks ago? Am I jumping the gun, my nurse seems to tell me I do this often...

This just goes to show you how different surgeons are. I was encouraged to eat anything post surgery, which I did!

I don't know about refried beans, but I will say that baked beans in anything more than a small portion will give me a lot of output. Not a problem per se, but if you need to be out and warned!!!!
