SOFT, COOL FOODS: Tuna salad, pasta salad, egg salad, yogurt, ice cream, smoothies, protein shakes. Do not use a straw.
WARM FOODS: Soups, tea, coffee (not too hot), mashed potatoes, ground beef, eggs
AVOID: Seeds, nuts, chips, bacon bits, croutons, hard bread crusts, and spice foods.
MOST IMPORTANT "KEEP HYDRATED": It is very important to drink your fluids and avoid any dehydration.
DAY OF SURGERY: Get plenty of rest. No strenuous activity or exercise for the first 24 hours.
48 HOURS AFTER SURGERY: Light aerobic activity or cardio is okay, just don't push it. A significant rise in blood pressure will contribute to more postoperative pain, and possibly some increased bleeding at the surgical site.
THIRD DAY AFTER SURGERY: Normal activity and exercise can be resumed.
