First time poster here, but not first time visitint. I was a big hiker before and during the first two surgeries with the ostomy. I'm wondering if you have any recommendations on what I should be eating on the trail come May? It's very hard when you can't have nuts, chocolate bars, fresh fruit, etc.
I am 3 months post takedown now, and recently had a CT scan for some tailbone pain. Pouchitis was ruled out because of the low output. Structurally they said the pouch looks good. They think it is nerve pain due to my low weight. On a ibuprofen regimen. I weigh 145 lb now, but my normal weight is 165 lb.
When I had the bag, I was eating anything and everything including Cliff bars. I ate one around the 2 month mark and it was the worst night of my jpouch. I just had peanut butter for the first time yesterday and that was ok. FYI, I struggle with hard stools sometimes and go about 6-8 times a day now, usually once a night.
