any reason why i shouldn't eat this?  haven't had any post-op, guess i'm a bit hesitant to try it 'cause it's so thick :-P.  i just used to mix it with water and microwave...

The oats don't digest and may get caught in crevices in the colon as my doctor had told me. I ate it after a while and it came out looking as it did going in, with the same aroma LOL. I loved the Apples and Spice, but the apples pieces made me concerned, and the surgar content (speeds the system up) was higher than the surgar and spice. Quaker Oats brand btw. I never had a problem eating it.

should be fine, some people eat it to thicken up their output or to slow it down. And if it comes out smelling like apples and spice, well that's just a plus!

I eat oatmeal almost every more for like 7 weeks since my surgery and no problems at all with it. I havent had any problems with any foods yet but havent started on veg's and fruits until today. Just make sure that you cook it to be soft and mushy. I had some that I did not cook very well right after my surgery and I concluded after that I needed to cook longer.

once you have been out of surgery for a while though, you can eat the veggies without having them all smushy, lol. just as long as you chew them well.

So how was it Matt? Quick cooking or Instant digests easier that the Old Fashioned, FYI!
