Hi, nurse42. It sounds like you're recovering well, congratulations! You may want to ask this over at the ostomies board. We have a few people here with ostomies, but you'll probably get even more information from the folks there.
I know we used to suggest to parents of children with ostomies that they be cautious with foods high in insoluble fiber and "gassy" foods until they knew how the children tolerated them.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.
Intolerant to Asacol and rectal mesalamine preparations.
On Prednisone then Entocort 2001-2006 with only short periods off.
Current meds are Colazal,
Azathioprine Remicade, Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri.
In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
