I am from Mumbai too. I had my jpouch creation and rectum removal done last week on 21st.
Hi I am from India living in USA.
I had my j pouch 2 weeks back and eager to learn and adopt the changes we need to make.
Any particular diet you follow?
After 3rd step I was put on liquid diet( soup, juices, coconut water) for few weeks and then on soft diet.
Maintaining a food diary will help you a lot. Mention time and quantity of whatever you eat. Note down the time when you have to empty the pouch and frequency of bowel movements. This will allow you to understand the average time the food remains inside your body.
Gradually you will start figuring out what works for you. I have heard people opting for low FODMAP diet. But I don't think it's relevant. I can't imagine having lunch and dinner without chappatis and rice. Avoid chillies, milk and non veg for time being.
