  • Great ideas! Very interesting reading the comments on this!



  • Slippery elm powder is good as it combats inflammation which your body will be experiencing post surgery. All the best.



  • good oily fats will help like avocados, nuts and salmon. Berries and all round natural foods will help.



  • There are some great tips here.



  • The Sustagen brand of formula that you make up as a drink is good.



  • there are protein shakes and also multi vitamins might help



  • Stick with lots of fresh foods that aren’t processed stuff. Also I think eating fish is meant to be good for period recovering from surgery, so maybe just plain steamed fish?



  • I hope you found the perfect answers. I have been juicing lately, Mixing it up everyday but i love watermelon kale, carrot,beetroot,apple,celery and chia seeds. Packed full of goodness and tastes great. Make sure you read up on cold compressed coconut oil it does wonders as well.



  • There are some great suggestions here.



  • keep it real, whole, unprocessed and where possible raw! make sure you top up your good oils too!



  • what did you end up drinking and eating?



  • there are some good comments here



  • lots of green leaft veg

  • Garlic, ginger, honey, lemon. All good healers and natural antiseptics.
