So...before I had my surgery it was so fun and interesting to read a thread that discussed the funky things we find in our bags!
and a little
I of course hadn't received my 'accessory' yet and it was kind of a fair warning about what to expect about certain foods...like colored drinks...I wasn't completely alarmed but was kind of weirded out the color of my output after I started drinking a pomegranite/cherry Crystal Light! Dark Red?!?
I also think it's weird how so much of our foods just pass right through and are pretty much in tact when we empty...gross I know...but seriously...it happens!
I personally think rice is an interesting food to eat as an ostomate...but I think lettuce (especially shredded) is NASTY!
Coffee makes Penelope extremely social, so I try to always drink it with milk or something and that sometimes helps.
I have also found there are tons of foods that I use a little extra M9 on just b/c the odor is horrific!
I won't get into detail about
those specific foods but I'm sure you all know which ones I mean!!!!
Now, on a different note, what is your experience with shrimp and crab meat? I'm really looking forward to going to a local casino for the crableg buffet! YUMMY!!!! However, I am a little nervous...
Have a wonderful day guys!!!!
