Have you discussed this with the surgeon? At 9 months and until he is 1yo, he should drink only formula or breastmilk, and start a modified table food diet. When offering solid, offer high calorie, high protein choices, scrambled eggs, tofu, yogurt.
Since he had a surgical procedure, you need to ask that doctor or the gastroenterologist for advice.
