After Your Operation

What to Eat After Surgery

Eat anything you want!

As soon as you leave the hospital, you can eat anything you want. No restrictions at all. If your doctor has previously told you to avoid calcium-containing foods…you can forget this now. Eat anything! Go get some ice cream!

Some patients ask us about having a cocktail or a beer the night of surgery. This is fine, but only one! Remember, you had anesthesia and your body will still have some anesthesia drugs on board. If you feel good enough to go out for a nice meal at a restaurant, then you should be good for one alcoholic beverage. Drink responsibly!
