Your bowel movements are likely to be loose and frequent in the period after your surgery but, over time, the frequency should gradually reduce and the consistency become more muddy/sludgy.
I recommend a high fibre diet to solidify your motions - imagine a liquid spillage on the kitchen floor on which you throw sawdust to make the spillage more semi-solid.
To this extent try:-
- pulverised fresh vegetables to which organic bran has been added
- pulverised fresh fruit to which organic bran has been added
- home made muesli for breakfast (soak oats and organic bran in milk, add lemon juice, grated apple, nuts etc). It looks like wet cement but tastes OK
- only organic wholemeal bread, no white bread, colas, junk food etc
- yes you can have some Swiss chocolate as a treat!!
Please do come back with any further questions you may have.
