A good day of food. Sounds yummy.
I am so used to cooking and baking low/no fat any more that I forget.
I make everything with fake eggs and Fleischmann's spread (fake butter).

Thanks for your warning about overeating. I will be careful. So far I have had oatmeal porridge, skim milk, strawberries, a tuna salad whole grain wrap with spinach and no mayo. Some zero-fat yogurt, too. No worries about Thanksgiving food though - we had ours back in early October, in this part of the world. I missed the pumpkin pie then, - it was too high fat for me then, with my gall bladder troubles.

Sounds like good news for your health after surgery. Bet you won't miss the pain.
It is best to tread lightly on the foods you reintroduce to your diet until your body gets adjusted. Remember that a useful to digestion organ was removed and the body needs to learn to respond to moving your food through your system a bit differently.

You may be tempted to overeat today - don't. And, watch the saturated fat in Thanksgiving foods. The pumpkin pie should work, though!

Keep us posted.

I also had my surgery on Monday morning, and they sent me home at 2 pm. . It is good to hear that lack of bm's is nothing to worry about! I ate toast and yogurt and fruit the first day, but yogurt made my belly blow up like a balloon, so yesterday I ate no dairy or meat at all, and that was way better. Sitting down and standing up is still quite painful.

Great news.
Don't fret of the lack of bm's, like GF said, unless it persists several more days.
Go easy on the food for awhile. Even with this day surgery your body has experienced a shock and needs time to adjust. Besides, it's a great way to drop a few pounds!

Sounds to me like you're doing fine! Give everything time - you'll need to eat before BMs happen, but I don't think you have anything to worry about.

I had meant to send good wishes for the op, but have been a bit distracted with family just lately. I'm so glad the surgery is behind you, and you can look forward to the future without attacks and discomfort.

And I'm doing fairly well. I was wheeled into the OR at about 11:30 am yesterday morning (Monday), and woke up in recovery just before 2 pm. They let me go home about 7:15 pm or so, with a prescription for Tramacet.
Today, I've been fairly sore, especially in the abdomen, and a bit in my back, which I guess is normal. I'm expecting to feel better tomorrow.
I've been able to keep all my food down, which is good, but I haven't tried much in terms of meat, etc.
My main concern is the lack of BM's...is that somethign to worry about?
