What is the best diet post op colostomy reversal?

Ask your doctor.
When I had it done, the hospital actually had a Dietary Nutritionist talk with me and give me some pamphlets.

Some of the best diets that you can have before colostomy reversal include fruits, vegetables and drink plenty of water. After the surgery, ensure that you avoid alcohol, caffeine, high fiber fruits and vegetables. This is to allow your bowel to recover after the surgery and give it less work.
