Diet is one of the main concerns people have and talk about following surgery. If you have a colostomy you don’t need to follow a special diet, but just like anyone else, some foods may cause wind or just not suit you. You can start to reintroduce your normal diet routine slowly. If you think a particular food is causing problems, try cutting it out for 2 weeks, then reintroduce it into your diet. Which foods affect you depends very much on your current diet and your own digestive system. Experiment and enjoy!
