Wasn't too long for me, I appreciate all the info and history. I am on low residue diet, take vitamins and walk on the treadmill. I do worry about diarrhea after surgery which I don't have now. There doesn't seem to be too much reason why it should start other than it takes a few days even after scopes for things to be back to normal. And I did ask the surgeon about that. Thanks again.
I did ask my surgeon about that naso gastric tube or NG tube as I have read about on the forum and he said they do not use it, just the breathing tube.
