No special precautio: Simply eat healthy. Avoid excess of saturated fats which come from meats and dairy products. Healthy foods are plant based and are low in fats. Fruits and vegetables with each meal are important part of a healthy diet.

No change: Generally I do not have my patients on any special diet after colon reaction. Just watch out for constipation if you take a lot of pain medications.
