Reply to "Booked surgery for k-pouch"

Ashbre, I am happy to learn that your surgery went well and that you are now “bagless”. You will appreciate your new pouch more as time passes by. You are only one month post-op, and it typically takes several months for your pouch to mature and for your internal plumbing to adjust. There are several over-the-counter anti-gas products (like Beano) and prescription medications that your doctor can prescribe for gas. Add new foods one at a time and keep a diary of your results. I found that yogurt went well and was able to add low fat milk and cheese later with no problems. Be sure to chew your food well and drink plenty of fluids, especially during summertime. And be sure to come back to this forum with any questions that you might have.
