Post Surgery: Diet?


#1

Just a quick question: after surgery, is there any specific macronutrient you should have?

Just had clavicle resection and wondering if I should try get predominantly carbs, protein, fat or a mixture thereof.

Cheers,

I would go with a high protien diet.


#3

Not a macronutrient, but make sure you get plenty of vitamin C to help with collagen formation.

The above plus its NO time to cut calories. you need them to heal. sure you may gain a little fat but it'll come off later and better to heal faster/well.
