Good nutrition plays an important role in maintaining health for anyone, and it’s especially essential for you if you have an ileoanal J-Pouch.
Below are tips to follow for healthy eating as your body adapts to your ileostomy and digestive system. Always follow your surgeon’s results for optimal recovery from your j-pouch surgery.
Keep in mind that each individual recovers from j-pouch surgery in a unique way and may process foods differently. Always work with your surgeon and discuss ways to improve your digestion.
