The average person is expected to consume up to 30 grams of fibre a day.  A low fibre diet is less than 10 grams of fibre per day and a medium fibre diet is under 20 grams of fibre per day.  A low fibre diet is quite the reverse of what you are used to being told to eat when you have or have had bowel cancer.  Normally you are told to eat plenty of fibre; however, for some people this can cause bowel problems.

Diet & Nutrition

Food and diet can often cause problems for patients on their road to recovery.  You may not be able to tolerate some of the foods you once enjoyed and your new bowel habits might be hard to come to terms with.  But food can still be fun and something to be enjoyed, with a little patience and planning.
