Vitamin B1 (thiamine) in TTFD form stimulates peristalsis. Cheap, OTC. Just make sure it's TTFD, the other forms won't do it. synthetic is TTFD, natural is allithiamine, derived from garlic. I would start on it asap, because thiamine can have paradox effect in people with low or marginal level. Start low, ease up "to bowel tolerance." Can combine with an osmotic aid like vitamin C as ascorbic acid or miralax.Do you have some sort of laxative? The surgery meds can mess up your works.
A bowl of Texas persimmons would work. Are they ripe soon? Or long past already ?
