Within 8 hours post close, I was advanced to the "clear liquid" diet in the hospital. I couldn't believe they wanted me (a person with high nutritional needs at that moment) to consume nutritionally bankrupt processed foodoids such as powdered broth in an envelope, a well-known brand of gelatinous dessert (full of sugar that PROMOTES cancer), and frozen sugar water on a stick--same thing.

You will do better if you eat six to eight small meals per day washed down with copious amounts of water. Yes you will pee a lot. This is good. It is your system sloughing off the residues of all the toxins you got in the hospital, including anasthesia, pain meds, and bowel stimulators.

And not only that--the more you chew the more saliva you get mixed with your food and that is a positive thing.
Good luck and Godspeed in your recovery or the recovery of the loved one for whom you are preparing food.
