Hi Jenn: My hope for him is that the POEM was successful. He is getting liquids down and of course that is wonderful news. He may want to take his time with the post op diet by extending his clear liquids a day or two before going to full liquids, then soft diet and then regular diet assuming that is the protocol. I highly recommend bone broth. I drank so much of it while on the liquid diet. It was soothing and has 8 gr of protein per cup. You can reach out any time if I can be of help. I do appreciate these discussion forums because it gives even those of us with rare conditions a chance to connect and compare our experiences. My continued best wishes.
