I’ve been trying different foods recently. Not foods that I’ve never tried but foods that I haven’t eaten since having my stoma because I was advised against doing so for a while. Given it’s been nine months tomorrow since I had my surgery, I thought it was about time I started introducing more foods so the things I’ve found I can eat (but was advised not to) include beansprouts, soft carrots, green cabbage and sesame seeds. Bear in mind these are all in small amounts and I am no way saying that all ostomates will be ok with these foods. My point is that it’s ok to test what your body (and your stoma/s) can handle. Has anyone else found that they can eat something they were told not to? I’m actually really interested to know what other ostomates/IBD/IBS sufferers have been able to digest despite being to told to avoid it.
