After surgery your intake would be low, which may result in decreased muscle mass in your body.
To avoid these consequences eat foods rich in high protein .
High-protein foods include poultry, soy milk, tofu, cottage cheese, yogurt and other milk product, eggs and meats.
Minimum intake of protein should be 65 to 75 grams per day. Don't worry if you are unable to reach your goal for first few months after surgery.
You may need to take the mineral and vitamins supplements as prescribed by your Doctor to prevent nutrient deficiency.
Nutrient supplements may include Calcium, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Selenium, Folic Acid, Iron, copper, zinc etc.
NOTE: All pills prescribed by your Doctor must be crushed into smaller pieces because it can be difficult for the pills to pass through the new anatomy.
