Ostomy: Diet and Nutrition Guide

summary/abstract:

This guide provides some basic information about the effects ostomy surgery has on digestion and food absorption. After healing is complete and the ostomy is functioning normally, most people with ostomies can return to a normal diet. If you have a special diet because of heart disease, diabetes or other health problems, you should ask your doctor about a diet that will work with both that problem and your ostomy.
