Right afterwards they usually suggest low residue foods. Rice, mashed potatoes, pastas and such. I'm not sure if ur getting a colostomy or an ileostomy. I have an ileostomy and I was back 2 eating n e thing I wanted afer mayb a week or 2.
There are things they say 2 b wary of. Nuts, which I don't eat, encased meats like hot dogs or sausages, i v eaten them. Salads and ruffage, I eat chef salads where the lettuce is chopped very fine and they don't give me a problem. Fruits with skins like apples, and oranges, unless u take the fibers or skins off. But its pretty much individualized, once u get better u can see what works for u by trying a tiny bit at a time. Ur belly will let u kno what does and doesn't work.
I hope I was of some help
