Hello Aulia Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pregnancy outside the womb in medical language is also called ectopic pregnancy, if the ectopic pregnancy ruptures it can cause internal bleeding in the abdominal cavity, and is dangerous so that surgery is carried out immediately. The type of surgery performed is usually a laparotomy.
Actually, there are no specific foods that are taboo when you have had this operation. However, eating the right foods can help you speed up the healing process, by regulating food intake after you have undergone surgery is one way to get the energy and content needed for the body to return to normal activities.
In principle, the way to improve the nutritional status needed for surgical wound healing is to eat whole foods. Wholefood is food that is still close to its original condition, for example foods that are not completely processed at all such as vegetables and fruit, or foods that are minimally processed such as oats, boiled potatoes. Wholefood contains more nutrients, is high in fiber, vitamins and other micronutrients that the body needs for postoperative recovery.
The following types of food are good for you to consume to help your post-surgery recovery process:
High-fiber foods: high-fiber foods can prevent you from constipation. Where constipation is one of the complications after you have surgery, besides that if you are constipated it can cause pain in the area of the operation, and can cause the surgical wound to be difficult to heal because it is stretched when you push, even the stitches that have not dried can open when you pushing. Examples of high-fiber foods: corn, oatmeal, wheat, fresh fruit (not packaged fruit), unprocessed vegetables, cereals (choose cereals that are low in sugar but high in fiber)
Avoid foods that cause constipation: for example canned fruit or packaged dried fruit, foods that have been through a long process of processing, cheese, foods that are high in sugar such as candy, cakes, sweet breads, and other high-sugar foods.
Foods that contain protein: protein can aid in the wound healing process and help form new tissue. You can consume foods such as chicken, fish, other seafood, eggs, lean meat, tempeh, soybeans, nuts. But keep in mind that some of these foods can cause constipation, so eat a balanced diet along with other high-fiber foods.
Contains Vitamins: Vitamin C is believed to help the body to form collagen which is needed for wound healing. Vitamin C is found in fresh fruit, such as oranges, potatoes, strawberries, kiwi, mango.
Minerals: needed minerals such as zinc or zinc and iron can help heal wounds and restore energy after surgery. Foods with high iron content, for example, nuts, whole wheat bread, eggs.
