Peggy was right on with her response. I have found that I can eat anything I want, just as long as I chew it well and don't eat a massive amount of it at once.
The only foods my surgeon said to avoid completely were mushrooms and large potato skins. Like Peggy said, trying a Little bit of something first to see how it goes is your best bet.
My surgeon also told me about a guy that developed a huge blockage from eating spinach, because he ate an ENTIRE BAG in one sitting! All the little stems created a blockage.
Also, anytime I eat salad or corn or whatever, I make sure to eat something like bread/potatoes/chicken with it so that they can mix with the fiber and kind of help push it through, you know?
I really haven't changed my diet much since my ostomy; I eat popcorn, regular corn, peanuts, salads, peppers, sesame seeds, apples, raisins (but only a few at a time), grapes, whatever. :)
Hope all goes well! Summerstorm who posts on here recommended getting shredded lettuce for salads, so I did that for the first few times I had them to help things along (now I just get regular lettuce).
Hope all goes well!
