Surgery is @ 9:30. What kinds of food do they feed you the first day and on?

Re: Eatting

I had mine at 7am & as soon as I got to my room the nurses gave me my pain meds, got me comfy, then asked if I wanted some juice water was always in a little pitcher next to me. Then I just had some crackers till dinner time & I was on a regular diet that night I don't remember what the hospital gave me, but it was "real" food not jello & broth. lol

I can't believe I don't remember what I ate! My husband was there I remember that haha now thats good pain meds!!!!!

Re: Eatting

I think your diet depends a lot on what all you are having done...if there is bowel work, appendix, etc, you might be put on a liquid diet or a bland diet.

I had my appendix removed, so I was put on a bland diet so I would not create any MORE gas than I already had. I had mashed potatoes and turkey the night of my surgery and scrambled eggs and toast the next morning. I think that is pretty much what I had the whole time I was there.

Burger King would have been AWESOME!!!

Re: Eatting

i heart burger king. there is nothing in the town i live in but i know that there is one 3 blocks from the hospital I am going to, and in between the two is my best friends apartment! I loath hospital food. i would rather eat out of a dumpster.

Re: Eatting

they gave me liquids,chicken broth,jello,sprite ,stuff like that.then next day i was put on solids,then i got to enjoy that gourmet cooking of sucked.bad thing about it,the hospital i was in, the server that gave you your tray actually had dress shirt(white),black dress slacks and a black bow tie like i was at somewheres fancy.i couldnt believe they made those poor women wear that stuff to bring out that stuff they passed off as food.
but just remember it just depends what you get done to yourself and your body's progress.

Re: Eatting

Thank you all for the answers. I doubt very much that I will be in much of any mood to eat anything on Friday. Just wanted to know if it was safe for the family to bring me food over the weekend!

Re: Eatting

For me - they had me on a liquid diet for the first couple of days. Broth, juice, water, jello, cream of wheat - that sort of thing - when I was able to have a bm I got to have regular food again.

Re: Eatting

I had Davinci, so my timetable for food was probably different. My surgery was in the early morning. First I was on clear liquid, (juice, broth, etc). By midafternoon that was upgraded to liquid, which meant that I could have stuff like milk, and soup. They also offered stuff like shakes or protien drinks. By 8 PM I was cleared for regular food, and had chicken teriyaki with steamed veggies and rice, and apple crisp. The food was not that great, but I was glad to get it anyway, I was soooo hungry. My understanding is that how soon you get to eat is based on how well your body tolerates adding food back into the equation. I had NO nausea at all from the anaesthetic, so did not have to stay on liquids for very long. I do wish that I had brought some food from home, as I am a much better cook than the hospital kitchen!

Re: Eatting

I didn't even think about having a different surgery & the time table for eating.
My OB likes you to eat because your on pain meds & he wants to avoid you getting sick, I had no nausea either but I wasn't really hungry either.
