What to Expect After Surgery
Following your surgery: If you had bariatric surgery, you must follow the Stage 1 Dietary guidelines outlined in the handout given to you by our Dietitian, Aparna. For all other types of surgery, it is a good idea to be on a bland, soft diet until you have a normal bowel movement.
Physical Limitations: Do not lift more than 10 pounds for 4 weeks following your surgery.
