Consume Probiotic Drinks After Appendectomy?
Good evening,. R I have a question. Is it okay to consume Yakult drink after a new appendectomy for a week ???
The use of probiotics such as yakult is considered a healthy consumption for digestion. However, to date, there are not enough studies that can recommend its effectiveness immediately after surgery.
Several studies have shown that the use of antibiotics will be stopped more quickly, and digestive function will be made easier, by consuming probiotics after gastrointestinal surgery. But several other studies also show that its effectiveness is not very significant.
Therefore, we suggest that you should discuss this directly with the doctor who treats you, whether or not it is good for your current condition.
Some things that also need to be considered are:
Post surgery, you should still limit strenuous activities, but still do light things
Drink lots of fluids
Eat healthy foods, which are easy to digest
Keep paying attention so that the nutrition is sufficient
So, hope it helps
