Diet after abdominal surgery
The commonest question patients ask after any surgery i(which ncludes toe-nail removal ) is about foods they need to avoid? Food is such an important player in an Indian's daily life and also has medical relevance as far as Ayurvedic , unani and other indigenous medical treatments are concerned, one shouldnt be surprised by such a question.
For most abdominal surgeries like appendicectomy, cholecystectomy (removal of gall bladder), Hysterectomy(removal of uterus), Caserean section etc there is no restriction on any diet. Patients can be on a normal diet 2nd or 3rd day after surgery. Avoiding Dal to avoid pus is a myth. Avoiding fatty foods after gall bladder removal is again a myth. Severe dietary restriction after a delivering a baby is absolutely meaningless. So please donot listen to neighbours or family memebers advice on dietary restrictions after surgery. It is always good to avoid oily and spicy food in general whether you had an operation or not.
