I know its probably been talked about before, but coming off the worst year of my life. Going in within the next few weeks for another surgery, and looking for any ideas on what to take post surgery for healing.
Here is the short of it. About a year ago I had an fissure in my rear (tear) from repping out deep squats, didnt figure out what it was until months later and continuing to train…messed it up bad…long periods of medicines trying to heal, no dice…surgery went bad, doctor botched it, major infection, and now I have a fistula which is two tears in the lining with a “tube” basically in between the tears from what I understand, and Ive also had major major digestive issues ever since too that I didnt have before the surgery.
Bloating, upset stomach, feels like I have the flu or food poisoning every other week. I needed the other surgery long ago but it took a while getting new doctors to figure out what went wrong because the original doctor just blew it off, “you will heal eventually, I dont know why you arent”…and now insurance red tape has held up the second surgery even longer.
This is what I took after last surgery:
-Glutamine high doses
-Tons of Gatorade type drinks just because I couldnt eat forever,
-EFA formula and Fish Oil caps
Ive dropped about 10 pounds in the last year, and upped my bodyfat probably 10%…its been literal hell not being able to clean, squat, deadlift, snatch, or work out…training has always been my life…so after this surgery, hopefully which will not be botched, I can get on the fast track to recovery.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Also if anyone is a diet guru as far as eating things to keep a messed up digestive system from getting upset. I have to do high fiber (obviously), lots of hydration, but other than that I am not sure how to keep my stomach from feeling like I went 12 rounds of body blows from Mike Tyson everytime I eat or drink now.
