Post Op Diet

Aloha Wahines (ladies)

Questions about post op diet.

I am having a TLH, USL, BSO & Burch procedure. I know for the first few days after the OR I should be on a soft diet.

What about after the first wk. Our normal diet is green salad with Kale, lots of soup with cooked dry beans, quinoa and some chicken and fish. Lots of beans and salad, broccoli :-)

So how does that sound?

Mahalo (Thanks) for any tips.

Re: Post Op Diet

I might go easy on the beans for a little bit. Your meals sound wonderful, though!! If the beans stand any chance of making you gassy, they might not be best right after a hyst, at least not til you're a little less tender. Just my opinion, though.

Aloha Sistah!

Go easy on the food at first, but the second week you should be fine.
Try to eat healthy and lose some weight if your need to.
If not, enjoy!
The reason is that with the inactivity the first few weeks, it is easy to pile on the pounds.

I was born in Honolulu, but have lived in California most of my life.
My aunts, uncles, and cousins live on Oahu, Hawaii, and Kauai.
We just came back from a visit to Oahu in late August.
We had to eat at Leonard's, Ono's for lau lau, and Eggs and things for the macademia pancakes. I am not sure your stomach could handle all that post op.

Take care, you will be alright.

In a somewhat related question - how do you prepare your quinoa? We are gluten free, so use alternate grains... I don't care for it as a breakfast food, but love it as tabouli (sp). How do you usually prepare it?

I just ate some the other day.
I was told that you boil it, like rice. It rises to the top at first, until it absorbs the water 2:1 ratio to the quinoa. You can cook it in a rice cooker or in a pot.

Mine was served cold with a piece of broccoli and diced tomatoes and cucumber in it.

Re: Post Op Diet

Ask your doctor what they recommend for a post-op diet. I was back to a regular diet the day after my surgery with no problems. I found that eating the foods that typically make me 'gassy' helped with getting things moving again, but that's just my experience!

Best of luck to you!

Be careful with gassey foods! Passing gas for me for the first week was very painful.
