Dr. Creighton Wright

Tasty: Frequently poor appetite early something he likes but low fat, low butter, low sodium see aha recommendations.
Dr. Stuart Flechner
Urology 47 years experience
Nice Gesture: He should be eating a few days after the procedure. Why don't you ask his doctors when they believe he can eat and make him favorite dishes from home. Probably best to keep away from hi salt or buttery foods.
