Go for it. Just have a small slice though and see how it goes. I had pizza a week after takdown and I was fine with it. Everyone is different...you won't know til you try it. Enjoy!

Don't eat too much of it. I made the mistake of doing that the last time I dined on thin crust cheese pizza with a small piece of garlic bead and water. I had the laws of physics join me that meal only to tell me "did you really think you could eat that much pizza minus 5 feet of your colon? You should have learned there's no beating the laws of physics by now. Sorry you lose." That whole meal reminded me how long ago my surgeon warned me how I'd become more dependent on my sphincter muscle after my J Pouch surgery was finished. Frowner Frowner

Ease into it, especially at first.

I'd start off with something plain, no toppings other than cheese.

(FYI, I eat pizza now with no problems whatsoever! There are just certain toppings that are a no-no for me)

If that's what you have eaten so far then I don't think you will have trouble with a slice of pizza. Smiler

you should be fine. eat a small piece bland toppings. if you want to combat too much acid get a tiny amount of baking soda in some water after. cuts the acidity.

I waited six weeks before I tried anything other than a soft, bland, boring diet. Then....just a very small portion of one new thing at a time. Waited to see how "it did" before including it again. On down the road all foods have worked for me. It just took awhile.

JenniferG,

You beat me to it! I ate pepperoni pizza in the hospital too. Wink I was told to order more than I could eat and to just have a few bytes of what I ordered. One time, after breakfast a Resident lifted up the food covering to see what I ate, and smiled at me. It was like they were monitoring my food as well as my fluids.

Tinned peaches come through clearly identifyable where as skinless fresh ones don't....can't imagine why. Would have thought tinned ones which are effectively cooked by the heat of the canning process would be easier to digest. Had a very bad experience with dried apples, making my partners museli, why oh why didn't I consider they swell up inside.

Pizza is my best go-to food! I have issues if I eat past 6-6:30pm. Pizza is my only exception. I can eat it and sleep without fear. :-)

If you've eaten all of that, a slice of pizza is no issue. Just make sure you CHEW, CHEW, CHEW and drink plenty of fluid (water).
