Can I Join Fasting After Appendicitis After 3 Weeks?
Good evening doctor, I ask you, I finished undergoing appendectomy for 3 weeks and now I am in romadhon, can I fast and after 3 weeks I can drink sweet sweet examples such as sweet tea anget or ice doctor?
Appendectomy is done to remove the appendix which is inflamed. There are 2 types of appendicitis operations, namely surgery with laparoscopy and open surgery. The recovery period for laparoscopic surgery tends to be faster.
In general, the recovery period for appendicitis is about 1 week and the patient can start normal activities starting 2-4 weeks postoperatively. But for strenuous activities you should control first with a doctor who treats, generally can start sports or heavier activities about 1.5-2 months after surgery.
If you have recovered, of course you may consume sweet foods and drinks, but just in moderation and don't overdo it, it is still advisable to increase the amount of water.
As for fasting, if you have recovered, you are allowed to fast with a note that you do not feel weak and no other complaints appear. If you have not recovered properly, you should first consult with the operating doctor whether it is allowed to fast or not. Pasa patients who have not recovered properly, it is feared that reduced nutritional intake during fasting can inhibit the healing process.
Here are some tips for undergoing post-operative fasting:
Drink enough water at least 2 liters / day Increase consumption of high protein foods Rest and sleep enough, about 6-8 hours / day Avoid pushing or lifting objects too heavy until completely recover Keep clean the area of the former operation Hopefully it can help you,
