    the best place i found for this information was the Mayo clinic . go online for their site and look for Low Residue diets. i had bowel cancer, chemo,radio therapy,a temp.illiostomy more chemo and more surgery. So i needed all the help i could get. Also learn the difference between soluble fibre and non soluble fibre and see what works for you. good luck from Hazel
