Treatment After Anal Fistula Surgery?
Doctor, what kind of food is good for fistula sufferers who have had surgery? You could say more specifically, if it’s a fruit, what kind of fruit. If it’s vegetables, what vegetables? Thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Anal fistula is an abnormal duct that connects the anus to the surface of the skin. Usually, anal fistulas form when anal abscesses are not handled properly. Anal fistulas are often infected so that they swell, feel pain, redness, and secrete fluid or mucus like pus, blood, which smells unpleasant. In order to prevent the spread of more severe infections, fistula ani needs to get definitive treatment, in addition to drugs, also with surgery.
Postoperative anal fistula, no special food or drinks are required to be consumed. However, in order to accelerate the healing of scars, it is recommended to increase high-protein foods, such as meat, liver, eggs, fish, poultry, and beans. Not only that, you also need to prevent constipation so that the wound from the surgery heals faster, for example by drinking and eating lots of fibrous foods, such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Do not forget, get plenty of rest, always keep the clean area of your former surgery, and also undergo regular postoperative treatment and control as advised by your doctor or surgeon so that potential postoperative complications, such as bleeding or secondary infections can be prevented and handled properly.
Hope this helps ...
