Reply to "1st time blockage"

I really appreciate the discussions in this post.

My father had his prostate removed by Dr. Karnes at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, 2.5 weeks ago, which was an ordeal as many doctors said they wouldn’t operate, in fear of puncturing the J-Pouch.

Thanks to God the surgery was a success, but he soon developed a lot of the symptoms discussed here and is currently in the ER, but will be home soon. I was very scared the doctor may have messed something up, but from what his J-Pouch doctor is saying, it doesn’t seem to be the case. 

He’s been on clear foods and liquids for 5 days now and the nausea and vomiting has ceased. I will keep him on a liquids diet until he feels he’s “ready” for some low fiber options.

Broth, Cream of Wheat, Jello, and Grape Juice is what he’ll be having for his first few meals! 

Any other meals we should consider?

Thanks a bunch for yalls help!
