  • Can I eat if I suspect appendicitis?

    One important reason NOT to eat if you have acute appendicitis is that you will likely be going to surgery under general anesthesia to treat appendicitis, and it is always better to have an empty stomach when you undergo general anesthesia to avoid vomiting and possibly getting aspiration and pneumonia. On the other hand if you feel hungry, you probably do not have acute appendicitis; but always check with your doctor or the ER for any new-onset abdominal pain, as symptoms vary between patients.

  • What helps stitches heal faster after surgery?

    Avoid putting pressure or tension on the wound or surgical incision that is healing; also increase your protein intake. The stitches bring the wound edges together so the body can heal, so depending where the incision is on your body, try to avoid any movements that may pull the incision apart, until you have a follow up with your surgeon. However if the incision is around a joint area, you do not want to avoid moving the join completely because it can lead to a "frozen joint"; so better to check with your surgeon. READ MORE

  • Can I eat spicy food after appendix surgery?

    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. READ MORE
