In general there are no restrictions, however everyone is different. There are certain foods that may be more likely to create blockages or cause odors. Here is a great summary of nutrition recommendations for those with ostomies:

For blood thinning medications, it is important to keep your vitamin K intake consistent. Vitamin K is mostly found in greens...be sure to talk with your Dr. about this so he knows how to adjust your medication accordingly.
