I'll be going in for an A/V fistula repair soon, and the docs said that it's important to have soft stool to avoid putting pressure on the area while it's healing. Makes sense.
Because I am SUPER keen for the surgery to be a success, I'm happy to have only liquids, or some other low-residue, pouch-friendly food to keep the pouch calm and stress-free while it recovers.
I am aware that when I don't eat, I get gassy, and I feel like excessive gas could also put stress on the pouch.
So, I am looking for recommendations on foods or drinks that:
- cause soft stool
- are low residue
- don't cause gas
- are your go-to food when the pouch is needs a break
Thanks in advance!
