I was wanting to try plain oatmeal but, I think it is rather fiberous and my doctor said low fiber, low residue diet. I need some more healthy choices to add to my diet. I am so scared of a blockage that I am reluctant to try new things. I just tried cold cereal, crunch berries actually, last night. I have yet to eat pasta because newshinycd had a blockage from it. LOL I also have not eaten any fruits or vegetables, even the yogurts with pieces of fruit in it, I have avoided.
I tried a tiny serving of potato salad last weekend, but when I read relish was to be avoided, I freaked out....I drank a ton of water to try and get the relish out. And the relish did come out, looked just the way that it looked going in. That scared me....
I drink water with every meal and I chew my food thoroughly.
Is it true that after having the ileostomy for a while, I will be able to eat more foods? I would like to try a cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, or a salad???
I know we are all different, but I was hoping somebody had some advice in regards to diet...Thanks, Tracy
