Curious - do you have a j-pouch as well? Your surgical path seems a little different and I'm just trying to remember!
Here is a link to my post takedown (reversal of temporary ileostomy) thread with tons of food tips to help with the clustering. I think it would help you post LAR as well. The radiation damages the tissue so soluble fiber (as contrasted with insoluble fiber) is really needed to help stretch the radiated tissue and restore - the the extent possible - elasticity in the tissue.

Thanks for the link, and for the info! I sincerely appreciate it! I think I am just thankful to know this won't be my new normal
