For people who had severe food intolerances with UC or Crohn's and who subsequently had their colon removed, do the food intolerances now remain for you? Or does it vary from person to person?

I can eat anything, too. I am just careful when eating nuts/popcorn/corn to chew really well and only in small quantities.

I had my colon removed for colonic inertia, not UC or Crohns. Prior to surgery I had soooo many food intolerances. Now I can eat whatever I want.
