Raw after abdominal surgery...too soon???
About 3months ago I had abdominal surgery to remove a large non cancerous tumor. Prior to the surgery I had been vegan and approximately 70% raw. I had no trouble at all tolerating lots of raw fruits and veggies.
Well, 3months post surgery and I find I get bloated soooooooo easily and just can't seem to digest my raw food as easily (I have gone back to raw now for over 1 month). I went for a lymphatic drainage massage approx 2wks ago and also had a colonic a few days ago.
I then saw my (conventional) doctor on Friday and she said it might be a result of surgery and that I should eat soft, non-ruffage type foods (i.e., cooked oatmeal etc.).
I still believe that raw is the way to go. Has anyone had this experience??? Has anyone had to alter their raw diet after surgery???? Any insight would be greatly appreciated :)
