Hi..yes, that's a most difficult aspect of colon inflammation and intolerance. The build-up drinks will be chock full of whey I would think...check into them as to ingredients.
I would suggest you eat small meals more often...that could help keep your digestive tract a bit active, but not overly. Make sure you get protein, small amounts of meat, eggs, etc.
If you have veggies, eat them well cooked. Rice bread is good if you cannot have any yeast in foods.
I don't know what you'd normally eat....but as your colon heals, you will improve regarding your discomfort.
You could also ask the doctor for some antispasmodics...they do help me. Most of my discomfort is related to food..and of course, when I'm flaring.
Keep us posted as to how you're doing...it'll take a while before your changes show. You could also consider a gas reducer...
