Pat, this may not be due to hunger at all. And eating fecal matter will not harm him, especially if it's his own. Dogs have weird habits that we don't completely understand and they are certainly more prone to odd behaviors after a stressful period in their lifetime. I wouldn't get too worried about this unless it continues to happen. Each time he defecates, remove it from the yard and keep a close eye on him. Chances are the abnormalities in the stool you've seen have been due to the bland food and the surgery and this may completely resolve once he's fully recovered from the surgery.
