Popcorn

So I had my ileostomy done 5 weeks ago. I feel well enough to go out to the movies, but I really want popcorn. I know it could cause an obstruction, but if I chew it really well can I have it?

I would probably steer away from it.

After my ileostomy several years ago, the nutritionist told me that I would need to stay away from popcorn and sausage to prevent obstruction. However, my surgeon said that I can eat anything provided that I thoroughly chew it. Since then, I have been eating both foods without any problems.

Popcorn was one of my comfort foods. There was a time when supper after work was simply beer and popcorn. Now its a food that I fear and is on my forbidden list. I only had to experiment once with it after the surgery to convince me.

I too want popcorn once in awhile. But, the big thing is the kernels that I can't handle. So, what I have is called: Pirate's Booty which is kernel free. It's baked rice and corn puffs and is gluten free too. For me, it's a good substitute.

Pirates Booty, sounds good. If I can find it on the shelf I am going to try it, but without the beer. I have been looking for a safe compatible junk food for Chrony patients if there is such a thing. I can tolerate a few chips, but more than that and it becomes a trigger food.

Quite often Costco has it. But, sometimes you have to look for it. I'd say Kroger (Fred Meyer) has it too, but not sure you have it up there...

I have not found a store here (in Canada) that carries Pirates Booty, but its available online. With shipping its a bit expensive. I have been substituting an egg salad sandwich to satisfy the urge for snacks later on in the evening. Sometimes grab a wing from a roast chicken I made.
