Have also been thinking of him because his 1st surgery was scheduled right before Easter-- the last we heard. He may be under sedation for a while & unable to use a computer as yet. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

I fear to hear any bad news about Bob...it's been a seriously precarious time for him.

I do truly hope he's not got any further complications.

I was thinking of him just last night. Hope all went well for him.

Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.

I sent him an email and he replied that he would let me (us) know what is going on when he gets the chance. That was about 3 weeks ago.
