What to eat when you have a urostomy

There are no eating restrictions after urostomy surgery. If your kidneys have been damaged, your doctor may have you watch your protein and salt intake, but your kidney function isn’t changed by the surgery. The urinary tract and digestive tract are separate systems. Be aware that some foods and medicines may cause urine odor or change the color of your urine. Drink plenty of liquids each day as your doctor or ostomy nurse recommends.
