  • Nutrition for Surgery Recovery

    So I'm having some minor surgery on March 9th and I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions to help encourage faster/easier healing. I've had this surgery before, and I swear the drugs they used were for an elephant (cuz I slept a day & a half after I got home, and I mean OUT. COLD.)
    I've already set aside several jars of beef & piggy broth (the latter made from chicken stock, coconut milk, curry, and pulled pork)
    Any other advice would be great

    if it were me, plenty of broth and greens and C foods
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

      soup, definitely. It is the easiest way to digest, you do want the wounds to heal and digesting is costing too much energy for good and fast healing.

      And never underestimate rest, not only your body, but also quite the mind. You do not need to get up fast and go running. Let your body heel. Stay as long as you can sleeping on the anesthetic.
      I just know from my own humble experiences of a few extrusive surgeries.

      So chicken soup.

      Hope all goes fast and smooth,

        Actually, I would also go on a anti inflammation diet prior to the event.

          Have been working on this, doing a more relaxed Whole 30 over the next month. The steroids they need to inject post surgery spike my blood sugar, so I've been cracking down on eliminating sugar (and dairy) and with marathon training recently, I've been watching my nightshade intake as well.

          Glad I'm on the right track with the broths I made. I wish you could taste my piggy broth, it was super yummy when I jarred it up.

            Liver, as soon as you feel up to eating it, is a good bet as well. Definitely make sure you get plenty of good protein too. Good luck!

                  +1 on liver! Zinc rich foods like oysters would also be good, too. Also, herbal silica-rich teas like nettle/red raspberry/horsetail would be good. Lots of vit. C and MSM, too!

                    tea I can do. I've had liver a couple of times, but it takes me a certain amount of will power to choke it down (I've even rinsed it several times, then soaked it in coconut milk).

                    Thanks everyone!
