I posted earlier about my family member having rectal surgery in about a week in Florida.
I was wondering about diet after the recovery from the surgery. I know that right after in the hospital the diet is very limited. But what about after, when you are home. Are there foods that work better, or some that you should really avoid?
Also, if there is an ileostomy, does this effect the foods you can eat and enjoy?
This is new territory for me and I would like to be able to help my family member out with some real deal advice.
For me, these boards have been the best way to hear the truth about what you can expect or what real folks go through.
Thanks so much for any advice or suggestions I can pass along.
