once your dr clears you from your low residue diet, usually about
8 weeks post op, you can eat ANYTHING you want! some choose not to eat nuts and seeds, they are harder to digest, and if you eat something like lettuce, or cabbage, be sure to drink lots to keep it moving.
Tbraz, thank you for mentioning the food coloring, noone had ever told me that, and i ate some red velvet cake one night, when we were at a hotel, and i went to the bathroom and emptied my pouch and thought i was bleeding to death! it was only after a nervous few hours that i figured it out, lol.
I wish someone had told me about that before hand!
