You probably won’t feel like eating for a while and it’s common to lose some weight. Softer foods are easier to eat for the first few weeks after your operation when you have swelling or bruising.
You might find certain foods make you feel sick, or give you indigestion or diarrhoea. This should settle down when you know more about the foods that upset you.
Keep a note of foods that cause you problems so you can limit or avoid them. This also helps your doctor or dietitian to know if you have a particular problem. Add new foods to your diet one at a time to find out how you tolerate them.
It can take a couple of months to get back to eating a balanced diet again. Try to eat as well as possible, this can help with your recovery.
