When The Patient Can Return To Eat Post-palate Surgery?
After ceiling surgery, which patient can usually eat on what day?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Surgery on the palate has various types, depending on the conditions before surgery and the reason for surgery. Of all these types, when the patient is allowed to eat will also depend on the progress of the patient's condition, so we cannot answer your question in detail.
One indicator that the patient is allowed to eat is the presence of bowel sounds or the patient has passed wind, which indicates that the digestive tract has returned to work. Because if you eat before that, the food that enters will not be digested and settles in the digestive tract. Eating should also be delicate first, so that the former operation is not too disturbing. When using a rough estimate, it might take about a week or more, but it could be less, because again it depends on the patient's condition.
Therefore, the most appropriate person to answer your question is the doctor who performed the operation. Because he controls the patient's condition every day and knows the progress of his recovery, whether it can be given food or not. Because after all, let's say we say it's usually allowed to eat on the third day for example, the final decision still depends on the doctor in charge. So, hopefully answering your question.
