I had my surgery last June and was in hospital for about 2 months as well. I didn't really eat at all until just before i got out and I didn't get any funny feelings when I ate but it took me about a month before I felt up to driving and going out and doing normal things again but one day I just felt like going for a drive and my sister came with me just in-case I needed her to drive if I didn't feel well. I think he will probally know within himself when he is ready to get back into things.
I hope all goes well for you guys when your brother gets out.
Thank you everyone for your wonderful feedback and advice! I will definitely need to keep an eye on him so he doesn't overdo it when he finally gets home. Unfortunately I spoke too soon and my brother did not come home today
He had 4 good days with no nausea or issues but Saturday he had a headache and he was throwing up again. No one seems to know why he has this issue. Today he seems ok again. He's still on the TPN but they're trying to slowly ween him off of it. I wonder if it's the TPN that's making him sick at this point. The kidney issue is completely done (his numbers are back to normal and he no longer needs dialysis). He's been eating small meals like soup or canned fruits or ensure. I just don't understand how he can go 4 days of feeling pretty good to throwing up again on the 5th day.
Ash - your post was mentioned but I didn't see it.
