Eating Fruit before Surgery

I am confused. My 'bowel prep' instructions say DO NOT eat any fruits at least 3 days prior to Bowel Prep. I read an article on here about eating fruits before surgery, as it helps with constipation after surgery. Can someone please clarify.

Re: Eating Fruit before Surgery

Go with what your personal bowel prep instructions say. Instructions differ by Dr and your situation, while articles here are just general. Someone else's Dr may have different instructions from yours, but you need to follow your own Dr's protocol. In some cases they cancel a surgery if you don't follow their instructions to a T, and who needs that. Best wishes for your surgery.

Re: Eating Fruit before Surgery

If you do our bowel prep and eat fruits you'll end up sitting in the bathroom all day because the fruit provides fiber to get everything moving but your already taking the prep solution or pills to do this.

It will help if you eat fruit right after surgery though to help keep things on the move.

Good Luck with your surgery.

Re: Eating Fruit before Surgery

that was my thought exactly. I will stick with the plan of not eating fruit 3 days prior, and then start as soon as I can after surgery eating it to get things moving. Thanks.

Re: Eating Fruit before Surgery

I agree, info given to you by your doctor trumps anything you might read here or anywhere else. Best of luck with your surgery!!

Re: Eating Fruit before Surgery

Yes, I will take my DR and PHARMACIST advice for sure. I do like this site, but don't take everything I read to heart. EVERY one is different......but its kind of neat to read all the 'interesting' articles. Thanks. Hope you are recovering nicely. WILL be glad when I am 'on the other side' towards recovering.
