Reply to "1st time blockage"

I eat lots of nuts, seeds, and other difficult but high nutrition foods via smoothies, juicing, puréed vegetable soups, etc. I also cook/roast the hell out of cauliflower, broccoli and some other risky veges so they are SUPER soft but wonder sometimes if this is still risky. Making something like a cauliflower mash with garlic, with the consistency of mashed potatoes is another option. I've had serious obstructions, one that landed me in an emergency massive small bowel resection, very nearly took my life, and caused the loss of nearly all of my small intestine after my jpouch surgery, and since then have been able to find lots of safe ways to get vegetables - thank goodness because thats what I ate before. I don't do well on the white bread high refined food diet the medical team recommends. I can't do gluten or dairy as they cause hella itchy rashes on my legs and scalp. If you are willing to get creative krissimay78 you can still eat lots of great delicious vege dishes.  (As an aside re grains, quinoa is a big no-no for me but I can do brown rice.  The recommendation is for white though I believe.).
