Diet suggestions for hysterectomy recoveryAre there any suggestions for a post-op diet?


Through the years, HysterSisters.com members have shared the types of foods that they enjoyed and that worked well for them after they returned home after their hysterectomy. Most found that their usual “comfort foods” were appealing in the early post-op recovery days. Simple, strong, distinct flavors rather than complicated and multi-flavored dishes seem to be preferred, with everything in smaller-than-usual portions.

Foods and beverages included on many of the “suggested diet lists” are:
  • Applesauce
  • Cereal
  • Chicken noodle soup
  • Cottage cheese
  • Cranberry juice
  • Eggs
  • Jell-O
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Milkshakes
  • Pudding
  • Sherbet
  • Toast
  • Waffles
  • Yogurt

It’s best to avoid gassy foods like beans, broccoli, and cabbage, and/or other foods that typically cause gas for you. Many suggest avoiding extra-spicy foods. Remember that all post-op surgical patients need protein to aid in healing. And, whether you get it from fresh fruits and vegetables, dried fruits, or cereals and whole-grain breads, you need to include fiber in your post-op diet. Also be sure to drink lots of water and avoid caffeine as much as possible.
