A person’s dietary and nutritional needs can change significantly following gastrointestinal surgery.
Diet & gastrointestinal surgery
Depending on the extent and nature of your surgery, how your body absorbs nutrients from your food may be altered, and the efficiency of your digestive system may change. Certain food intolerances can also develop.
Managing these things can play an important role in your recovery, supporting your long-term health and avoiding nutritional deficiencies.
However, diet and nutrition after gastrointestinal surgery is not ‘one size fits all’ and may look very different from one individual to the next. At Hadley Wood Hospital, we understand that these changes can seem overwhelming at times – but you’re not alone.
Our dietitian can work closely with you on a one-on-one basis to create diet and nutrition plans tailored to your individual needs, taking into account your personal health history. Due to the wide range of gastrointestinal surgeries, the nutritional consequences for individual patients can vary widely – so having tailored advice, to suit your specific type of gut surgery and individual needs is important.
With the right guidance and support, our dietitian can help ensure you regain a sense of control and confidence over your diet and managing your health.
