what to eat after colon removal
I had my colon removed about 25 years ago. I find that starches are the best way to go for me. I eat plenty of bread, but stay away from dairy as much as possible. I have to limit liquid intake. The one thing that I have found most helpful in keeping my bowels from being too "liquidy" is taking Metamucil twice a day. My gastro dr. recommended it, and I thought he was nuts! WHY would I want to take something that would possibly increase bowel movements? It provides bulk, and helps prevent "accidents." I tried others, but Metamucil is the only one that works for me.
