Reply to "BM during the night - Experiences"

Hi, Makaveli. Your pouch is brand new and your system is learning how to work with its new life. It took me almost a year before I could sleep through the night. In the beginning for a few nights I had to get up every 15 minutes, no joke. I feared this was my new life and I would never get a decent night's sleep, itself a serious health hazard. But it did get better and I now sleep through the night, or get up once to use the bathroom. I eat everything except seeds or nuts, and I sometimes eat late in the evening. I have no problems with urgency, frequency or leakage at night because of this. Sometimes you sleep better with a small amount of high protein food in your stomach. Hard cheese on crackers, peanut butter on toast, a cup of pasta?  Maybe, for now, stay away from raw foods, raw salads, hard fibrous vegetables. Stick with soluble food so it exits your j pouch easily and you have some control. Steer clear of processed food, but eat broiled or grilled fish, baked chicken, tofu, roasted vegetables, homemade soup, or store bought homemade soup!  I ate one egg per day after my takedown for the protein, soft texture, and vitamin B12. I also ate lots of steamed spinach. Yes, it's mushy, but full of nutrition and I didn't have problems with cooked spinach. I had broth every day for the salt and hydration. Give yourself more time and try not to worry.
