Be careful: Watch your diet. Drink plenty of liquids. Should not be taking narcotic pain pills at this time. Avoid fried or fatty foods for a while. Watch out for milk products that can cause gas & bloating if lactose intolerant. Use laxative if constipated. Contact your surgeon with your concerns.
