Upcoming LIS could use dietary suggestions

Postby BarbC » 14 Jan 2014, 11:25

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum.
I have suffered with my AF for the last eight or nine months. There were many complications from my UC (and J-pouch surgery); the last remaining issues are a partial blockage that keeps recurring and this darned AF that makes it extremely painful to eliminate.
I have not read all the posts regarding AF and LIS, yet, but I sure could use some quick advice on the types of food that sufferers have eaten that passes a little more freely than a 'normal' diet that my GI doctor prescribed.
I appreciate all help or suggestions.

HI BarbC, I am day 4 post LIS surgery and still trying to figure this out myself but I am sticking to soups, purees, lentil soup, any bean soup, natural squeezed juices I make in my blender, watermelon, kale, cucumber, carrots and pineapple juice; absolutely no meats such as steak. Light chicken or tuna salad, fish, or even shrimp.

I take a fiber pill 2x day--psyllium husk. They sell it everywhere even generic at Target, Walgreens, Costco, and most drug stores and two stool softeners 2x days called Colace.

Hope this helps!..

Also, stay away from pizza, bread, pasta, white flour and sugar products. I also have oatmeal or smoothies for breakfast and put a 1/2 banana or strawberries, blueberries in my smoothie.

I truly appreciate your quick response and it all makes sense. Your user name says it all. It is one to which I can relate. I am in there ten to fifteen times in a 24 hour period and I "Hate to poop"; it hurts so much.
So, it appears that a liquid diet is the best with fruits and vegetables thrown in a blendrer.

Yes, foods mostly based from fruits, veggies, beans...You can have chicken, fish, shrimp, turkey...etc. though I have very small portions just enough to satisfy me because the "liquids" can get quite boring after a while! Good luck...
