In brief: Ok to ask surgeon

Your surgeon and facility typically give verbal and written instructions on what to expect after surgery.
Ok to call and ask, make your post op appointment at the same time. Typically diet limited until bowels are moving, and avoiding heavy lifting for two weeks is the answer.
