Abstinence To Eat After Cervical Cancer Surgery?
What foods and drinks are recommended after cervical cancer surgery? And what are the restrictions, please explain?
Thank you for the question.
Cervical cancer refers to a malignancy in the cervix due to genetic mutations whose cause is thought to be related to the Human Papillomavirus virus infection, environmental conditions, and daily lifestyle. This cancer is at risk of becoming deadly at a more advanced stage. Therefore, after being detected, treatment must be done as soon as possible so that cancer cells do not already spread and risk causing serious complications.
Management of cervical cancer can be done varies depending on the stage. This treatment is usually done by surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or a combination of the three therapeutic modalities.
There is no specific dietary pattern that is required or prohibited for cervical cancer sufferers who have undergone surgery. It's just that, to speed up recovery, you are advised to increase your intake of foods rich in calories and protein (especially vegetable protein). Not only that, to prevent the growth of cancer cells, instant foods, preservatives, instant seasonings, and foods that are potentially contaminated with harmful chemicals, such as pesticides, mercury, lead, etc. you must also avoid. Foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, vegetable oil, fish oil, and water are also good for consumption to prevent the spread of cancer cells.
That is all our explanation, for more details, please consult further with your doctor or nutritionist who treats you.
I hope this helps.
