When I was going in for gall bladder surgery, which was also laproscopic, my surgeon told me NOT to drink milk or milk substitutions (such as soy or almond milk...also my beloved cheese) at all. I was told that unless I was pregnant or menopausal there was no need for me to consume milk products at all if I have a multi-vitamin since I could get the nutrients through the balanced low-fat diet I was on already. I suppose it's a case to case basis...but being told to avoid all milk products entirely seemed odd to me at first...and interestingly enough I became lactose-intolerant post-surgery. Go figure.
