After Appendicitis, It’s Only Been 24 Hours?
good afternoon doctor I want to ask, if after appendectomy, you have to eat soft food, when you eat soft foods and what kind of fruit you can eat, what is juiced first, because you have stomach acid too … thanks previous
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. After any major surgery, especially in the abdominal area, patients are not allowed to eat right away. The doctor must ensure that the patient has bowel movements marked by bowel sounds and bowel movements, so that incoming food can be digested and not actually settles in the digestive tract and cause new problems. But for how many days alone, it will vary from patient to patient.
Similarly, until when to eat soft foods, this also depends on each patient. If the patient after trying soft foods, his stool is still not good, then he is not ready to eat solid food. But in a rough count, in less than a week after surgery the patient should be able to eat as usual. What you experience can be faster or longer than this estimate because again, it depends on your recovery ability.
For the fruit, in terms of operation itself there are no restrictions. However, because you have a history of stomach acid disease, in general, abstinence is anything that is spicy, oily, bersantan, fatty and sour, including fruit. So acidic fruits such as oranges, lemons and the like you should avoid so as not to trigger complaints. Apart from that, you may consume fruit in the form of juice, and importantly, do not delay eating or consuming coffee. So, hopefully answering your question.
