Pre-surgery nutrition info
« on: March 21, 2008, 01:17:32 PM »
My dad will be having a significant surgery in about two weeks and I was wondering what dietary suggestions, or vitamins I could suggest for him.  I currenlty have him taking his Bio-K daily, as well as a pro-biotic.  He eats relativly healthy, but I just want to ensure everything I can that he will recover as fast as possiable, and prepare his body for this major shock.  I appreciate any information you can share.  Thank you!

Presurgery:add zinc, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, whey powder, green powder. Stay off Calcium until the stitches are removed (week or so) or else it can calcify at the point of the incision.
