Fodmap Eating Plan

My situation differs, but diet problems are likely the same. After removing my colon, my surgeon said, "You have, now, the equivalent of a newborn infant's intestinal system. You'll learn what works. First, avoid salads: lettuce of every hue is chiefly water, shouldn't bother, but does, and offers little. Don't eat after 5 p.m. Introduce foods gradually as you did to babies." Everything he said proved true.

Hello @evewrites and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect

I'm glad that you joined this discussion on diet for GI problems. I find your diet guidance interesting, especially "no eating after 5 p.m." Did your doctor explain how that helps?

If you care to share more, could you explain why your colon was removed? Was it from diverticulitis? Could you share a little of what your daily food intake is like? How do you feel?
