08-01-2009, 01:47 PM
As I mentioned in my other post, I am having a minor surgery on Monday. It requires me to be still for 2 full weeks in order for scar tissue to form around the area to make the surgery affective. Then another 4 wks after that of very little activity to insure proper healing or the surgery is worhtless.
Is there something I can incorporate in my diet or supplements to help my body heal quickly? Being still for that long is liable to drive me crazy!! No housework for 2 full weeks may be one woman's dream, but to me it's a nightmare for that long, I gotta be busy!!! yeah, I'll enjoy the first week, that's for sure.
Anyway, whaddya think? How can i help my body heal around the surgery site quickly?

SCREAM...........I know what you mean......being Still for 2 weeks:eek:. Now that's depressing. Another Woman's Dream.........Our NightMARE.
Just being RAW and remaining RAW should help your Body speed things up. What do Drs. know? How often do they get the Birth of a Baby Right?:D, they say one date and it either comes EARLY or LATE, as I said.....What do they know?:D
Read all your RAW Book again, Watch Funny Movies.....like Sherlock Holmes in Black and White. Stay connected to RFT.
SCREAMING in the voice of Betty Davis..........DON'T LET THEM STRAP YOU TO THAT BED..........as Joan looks on.
Hope your time Flies and 2 weeks seem like a Day in Paradise...........

An immune formula with ingredients such as garlic, honey, cayenne, echinacea, ginger, etc. Probiotics-taken at separate time from any meds. Vitamin C-in immune formula or separately. Of course green smoothies and green juices are always helpful.
To possibly use later to help heal/eliminate scar tissue-systemic/therapeutic enzymes and/or msm.
Also some type of external formula to apply over surgical area. Manuka honey is one of the best things to use immediately.

Spicyfull, Oh that made me laugh!!! So glad I am not the only "freak" that likes to stay busy, even if that means housework. I had a maid in Singapore for 4 yrs and I HATED IT!!! Yes, I enjoyed not having to clean toilets and taking walks after dinner instead of cleaning up. But being an At Home Mom, she took my job away and I needed to be busy! Turned out to be a blessing in disguise for me though, as I got reeeeaally sick after dd was born. I got to sleep ALOT. And I got to know a really sweet gal, and made a huge impact on her life! great stuff!
Anywho. I plan to watch lots of I Love Lucy with my boys, we laugh out loud at those together! Good stuff. Also bought some fun crafts to do and while sitting together. Here's to being busy sitting down and inactive (trying not to cringe)
Dimond, those were all great suggestions! Thanks a heap! But I have one question.......The surgery I had requires scar tissue build up internally to be successful. It will hold the fabric in place that they used. Does that make sense? I only have 2 tiny tiny incisions that needed one stitch outside.
So, the Immune boosting stuff is great, but the therapuetic enzymes and msm, will that negatively impact the scarring internally?

I don't know enough about your surgery to know the answer. I would think they would be products to use later on, once you've been recovered for awhile. But definitely do more research and maybe ask the manufacturers of the products. Definitely wouldn't want you to do something that would counteract the positive benefits of the surgery.
Wish you a speedy recovery. :)

The homeopathic remedy arnica before and after surgery promotes healing. Best of luck! Craft activities with your children will provide special time with them. What a great idea! Scrapbooking is another idea. I never seem to find time to sit and sort and create albums. I wish you happy healing.
