Q. I recently had my surgery for bowel obstruction?

I recently had my surgery for bowel obstruction? None of the diet was restricted for me by doctor but should I go for any special diet.
A1I had surgery in 08/08 during having a c-section and hernia repair, and I'm having diarrhea all the time. I don't know what to eat nor what medicines to take. Only Immodium AD helps temporary. If I have an appointment, I don't eat breakfast or lunch. I come home and eat dinner. About 30 minutes after eating, I'm in the bathroom. Can someone help me please? I have to return back to work next month, and I don't want to be in the bathroom more than I am at my desk.
A2A tumor or a scar might cause a bowel obstruction which may narrow the small intestine. Surgery for this usually removes a very short section of the intestine. The requirement for any special diet doesn’t seem to be so clear because only a short section of intestine is removed; your digestion is essentially unchanged. I feel no special diet is needed.
A3well, i know that low fiber diet is recommended by doctors when you have the bowl obstruction. but if it was removed- so a high-fiber diet and plenty of water can prevent constipation and possibly diverticulitis.
eat more fiber- it might prevent intestine problems.
