Is he recovering from surgery? I just had my lap nissen done last week, and it took me a full week to have a bowel movement. I went off my narcotic pain meds for a full 24 hours to see if it would help, and it did. I'm back to taking my pain meds as I need them, and I'm sure it will slow things down a bit.
If he is still on the pain medication, it will be awhile. In the meantime, keep up with as much water and fiber as he can manage. Applesauce has fiber, or you can try something like metamucil. I'd also recommend stool softener, I'd been taking one daily and I think it helped.
