Suggest 6-8 wks: Allow the anastamotic swelling to subside then resume regular diet. No diet can avoid another SBO

Not really: Adding colace (docusate sodium) and high fiver diet is an excellent idea, however it can backfire if you don't drink more water than usual.

Yes: Twice daily bowel movements can be quite normal on a high fiber diet. Bowel movements help you detox, and twice daily is a good thing.
