“Can I eat spicy food after appendix surgery?”
I am a 19 year old female. I want to know if I can eat spicy food after appendix surgery?

Yes, you certainly can. There are generally no dietary restrictions after appendix operation.

No, stick to an organic, low gluten, non-GMO Mediterranean diet. Stay hydrated 2,000 ml distilled water/Pedialye daily.

Once you recover from surgery, you will be able to eat a regular diet without restrictions. It make take a few days or weeks, sometimes even up to a month, before you feel like eating all kinds of food again.

You should be able to get back to you normal eating habits after you have had a successful appendectomy (removal of the appendix). Spicy food can affect your stomach and esophagus though and I recommend discussing this with a gastroenterologist specialist.
