My grandpa is 86 years old. Few days ago he was in hospital with the following symptoms:
Vomiting dark liquid, burping, diarrhea. I am not quite sure what the exact diagnosis was but I what I understood is interlaced intestines, blocked colon and bad peristalsis.
At first he was about to have surgery, but end up having just cleaned up inside and few days on tube systems. Today he is back at home. The doctors said to avoid certain foods such as spicy, salty etc. Can anyone please recommend a good diet and exact foods he should be avoiding? I am really worried we don't give him something that can harm him!

Just follow a bland diet such as boiled chicken, fish scrambled eggs, omelettes and veggies such as sweet potato and ordinary potato, squash, broc, cauli mashed with potato...no butter or salt in the mash just a little lactofree milk...some red meat. gluten free bread... greek yogurt natural or fruity....home made soup with very little salt....use reduced salt chicken and beef stock. I don't know what part of the world you are but i'm sure you will be able to find a supermarket that sells reduced salt products and gluten and lactofree products........obviously no curries, pasta spicey recipes or salty bacon or citrus fruit.. ..plenty water no fizzy drinks or caffeine in tea or coffee.....hope this helps best wishes.....
You can always go the vegetarian section for vegetarian meats- low salt.....bon appetite ...my very best wishes.....
I would suggest lots of fluids, easy to digest stuff - soups would be good.
