Re: Foods I can eat after colon resection
I spent a week in the hospital after my re-section and, at discharge, was told to eat soft foods for another 2 weeks....creamed soups, puddings, mashed potatoes/sweet potatoes, etc. Then, I could introduce all foods slowly. So....at 3 weeks post-surgery, I ate pizza! I could eat just about anything I wanted...altho I avoided salads for a while. I ate a lot of chicken and fish...as red meat is hard to digest. You shouldn't be consuming lots of fiber initially. Lots of healing going on inside at this point.....
The eggs shouldn't be a problem. Get some Boost or Ensure if you feel you're not getting enough nutrients. Most surgeon's discharge their patients with a diet they should follow. I'm surprised yours didn't.
Before you know it, you'll be eating anything and everything!
