Hi, Thanks for using HCM.
You should not go out of hospital without taking advice. Get done one USG abdomen and better to consult the treated doctor for the advice as only he can know what happened during surgery, the parts removed, investigations and any diagnosed problem. Have adequate regular sleep, plenty of fluids, nutritious fibre diet with required calorie and regular outdoor exercises for your wellbeing. Hope I answered your question. Consult your doctor for further management.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
