What specifically I can eat after (inguinal) hernia surgery? I asked doctor and even a pharmacist but they just mentioned what to avoid and not what I can actually eat. I checked on net but each article says different things.

You can check the answer of the people under the question at Quora “is coffee bad for inguinal hernia

  1. Since there are no dietary restrictions after the procedure, you can eat: whatever you usually eat, whatever appeals to you, whatever is readily available. Good luck.

  2. Responding to A2A.
    “ Diet

    You can eat your normal diet. If your stomach is upset, try bland, low-fat foods like plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt.
    If your bowel movements are not regular right after surgery, try to avoid constipation and straining. Drink plenty of water. Your doctor may suggest fibre, a stool softener, or a mild laxative.”

    After any surgery, good idea to have protein (something like wild Alaskan salmon would be excellent choice); avoid sugar and excessive carbs; try to get in leafy greens & cruciferous vegetables. The more nutrient-dense healthy foods give your body more to work with to heal well. Have to see how your digestion is; first day or two would go with foods that have always been easy for me to digest, if all is well, second or third day would eat normally but trying to pack in more nutrients, with focus on the veg and quality proteins.

  3. You can eat everything but just 25,% of your normal diet untill the surgery is fully cured. Processed foods/ sugary drinks/ alcoholic products / heavy exercise/ coughing, sneezing/ etc should be avoided.

  4. Eat absolutely anything you wish.
    But do take stool softeners and stay hydrated so as to avoid constipation and straining.

  5. Whatever may be said constitutes medical advice so will not offer anything on a public forum. Not being “qualified” you are taking your chances to talk to me.

  6. You may eat anything that is not on the foods to avoid list. But to encourage excellent healing you need a healthy diet with ample protein. You also want to have good hydration and enough fiber to keep you pooping regularly since this is a big issue post-op.

  7. GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease, also know as heartburn is the most common issue post this surgery. I would recommend smaller meals to ensure efficient digestion and emptying of the stomach, divide your proteins up over the day so that no meals have large amounts of protein which can increase GERD. Bland foods, not so much soluble fiber or fat at a time either which can slow digestion and stomach emptying. Drink fluids between meals and eat starches, low fat and light protein meals for the best results.
