Permanent SIBO due to removal of ileocecal valve

Have been on low residue diet, now introducing new foods slowly, as surgeon says I can eat normally since Deloyer procedure. I am trying to still be careful as I think I have some PTSD where certain foods are concerned. Things seem to be going ok, had some ground beef, onions and avacado. Didn't seem to bother me other than bm was a little looser. As I am only 4 weeks out from surgery, not sure what my new normal will end up looking like. I am definitely keeping track of my intake and my reaction

It has taken me 2 1/2 years to get more comfortable trying new , or old foods that aren't on my 'safe' list. Your surgery was very recent. Please give it time. It's good you are keeping track of what your intake is. It can take up to a full year to fully recover from bowel surgery. And even then, many of us are not the same. Manageable but not the same. Everyone is different in their recovery rate and what they can, and cannot tolerate. Good luck!
