Can Consumption Of Cork Fish Capsules Post Gallstones Surgery?
I want to ask, how many days after the gallstones can be recovered? Is there any restrictions after doing gallstone surgery? May I take a cork fish capsule to speed up the dry wound of the operation?
Thank you for the question.
Gallstones that have severe clinical symptoms, and do not respond well to medication, can be treated with surgery. Gallstone surgery is done by removing the gallbladder, or also called a cholecectectomy. With this operation, bile will later flow directly from the liver to the small intestine, without first being stored in the gall bladder. A cholecystectomy can be performed using an open surgical method (laparotomy) or also minimally assisted surgery with the use of a small camera-tipped tube (laparoscopy).
Most often, cholecystectomy is not a dangerous operation. Within 1-2 weeks, you generally can get back to your usual activities. Healing may take longer if the type of surgery performed is open surgery (often ranges from 6-8 weeks), if you have excessive physical activity, if your former surgery is infected secondary, or if you experience certain medical conditions, such as bleeding disorders, impaired immunity , connective tissue disorders, malnutrition, and so on.
To speed up postoperative recovery, you are advised to:
Take control of post surgery according to the advice of your doctor or surgeon More rest Keep your scars clean, dry, and do not experience excessive pressure or friction Eat small portions but often Consume more high-fiber foods, such as fruits, vegetables, Whole grains Limit consumption of foods that are high in cholesterol and bad fats. Maintain weight, avoid obesity. Cork fish is believed to contain rich nutrients, especially good protein and antioxidants to accelerate wound healing, while optimizing post-sick recovery. Therefore, it is fine if you want to consume this fish after cystectomy. However, if the exact contents of the capsules that you mentioned are still unclear, whether they contain pure cork fish extract or added other harmful substances, then you should not consume them before they are declared safe by your doctor.
Hope this helps ...
