I had mine out right at a year ago. It was done outpatient and although I was up and walking around that evening and back to work 3 days later, it took a few days for me to want to eat anything.
Certain thing may or may not affect certain people, whereas my daughter has to watch the fats, I actually have to be careful of leafy stuff. I had a LOT of trouble at first with lettuce, spinach, and anything with a skin, like bell peppers.
My body gradually adjusted to just about everything, every now and then, I have a bathroom issue with spinach...but then again, I eat it quite often. I figure that I am still getting good nutrients for minimal discomfort.
The hardest thing on me is peas, which makes me sad, because I love them.
It was VERY frustrating for me for a few months...I didn't go ANYWHERE that I didn't know where the bathroom was located, and if it was a crowded place, like the mall here...I know where the bathroom is but it is ALWAYS a wait, so I didn't go at all.
Just remember that it will take several months for your body to adjust.

Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
