Hopefully, the doc is monitoring that you're not draining large amounts of bile into the abdominal cavity and that the leak has closed. It's going to take awhile, but if they've got the situation under control you should slowly improve. Stay away from anything fatty. If necessary, ask the doc for some bile-binding resin like questran to bile up the bile and reduce the bowel urgency.
