I had mine removed about 6 years ago. I did very well, but do watch the greasy foods--could be a problem. My mother-in-law said she couldn't eat boiled cabbage any longer after surgery, but I eat it and have no problems, but I do have problems with greasy foods. Food tolerances may be different for different people. After you start eating normally again, you'll discover which foods present a problem.
The surgery is nothing to be concerned about. I sailed thru it.
