Many new ostomates are anxious about the effect their stoma will have on their ability to eat normally. But broadly speaking, once your body has recovered from the operation, you will be able to eat what you did before. Remember everyone suffers side effects from different types of food, and this is not particular to having a stoma. It is unlikely that you will have to make any major changes, although certain foods (spicy foods, some vegetables, fizzy drinks etc) can cause more problems than others.
