I am almost 1 month post op and have been on the GI soft diet per my doctors orders. I have a loop ileostomy and my J Pouch has already been constructed. Pre-surgery I loved fresh fruits and vegetables. Salads with grilled chicken were one of my favorite dinners. I am missing my veggies. I know that raw veggies wouldn’t be a smart move for me right now but does anyone have any suggestions for which vegetables to introduce first and how to prepare them? My surgeon said I will be able to eat vegetables again and told me to introduce new foods one at a time but I am so afraid of potential blockages! Also, I’m not sure how soon to start introducing even cooked vegetables. Any J Pouch chefs feel free to come forward!
