Nutrition Matters Before And After Surgery.
Nutrition, both before and after your surgery, can play a vital role in how quickly and well you recover. From reducing your risk of infection to possibly lessening the appearance of scarring, the role nutrition plays in healing from any surgical procedure should not be overlooked.
The foods you eat significantly affect weight, blood pressure, mood, and your body’s overall function. Food has so much control over how the body operates, it also dictates how well it will respond to surgery and trauma.
When you have surgery, swelling and inflammation are your body’s natural reactions. They happen because the body sends extra blood to the site of the trauma and incision, which carries nutrients and platelets that help the healing process.
