The doctor should have given you a strict diet to follow for at least 6 weeks.  Beginning with soft foods and cooked fruits only for about two weeks.  Then you gradually add pudding and mashed potato the next week.  Whatever you do, don't eat salad or greens until the 7th week.  And even then very little.  Your incision needs time to heal.  Ask him/her for the TIF diet - it's very restrictive, but helps you to heal.   Hope this helps. - PS  My mom had that surgery at the age of 84 and did well.  Hope you do too.
