Does anyone think cheddar cheese can cause obstructions.  I've heard cheese is the hardest food to digest.

I generally avoid dairy because it makes me feel sick if I eat too much of it but this would be another good reason to avoid cheese. I think if you have a tiny bit once in a while it might be okay but eating a lot of cheese could probably cause a problem. When I first had my j-pouch surgery I was told to eat “thickening” foods so that my BMs would be thicker and not so watery. Now I’ve been told to limit my intake of those foods (things like bread, pasta, rice, peanut butter, applesauce). It seems to help to eat less of those foods and to eat less food overall so that I don’t get overly full. It means that most of my BMs are liquid or mush but that seems to make it easier for everything to pass through without getting stuck.
