Sounds like more good news.
When I had surgery, I think I was on ice chips only for a day, then fluids--that cup of bouillon was the best thing I ever tasted!
Then I started tiny, low-residue meals on maybe the third day? But I didn't achieve a bowel movement until the 6th/7th day, and that required a laxative plus a suppository plus a cup or two of coffee, so it seems to me that you are progressing very well!
Glad your BP is under control...maybe it is the relief of stress!
