After undergoing piles surgery, it’s important to follow a diet that promotes healing, minimizes discomfort, and supports bowel regularity. Here’s a general diet plan you can consider post-piles surgery:
  • Day 1-3: Clear Liquid Diet – Water – Clear broths (chicken, vegetable) – Herbal teas (chamomile, ginger) – Clear fruit juices (apple, cranberry)
  • Day 4-7: Full Liquid Diet – Soups (pureed vegetable soups) – Low-fat yogurt or yogurt smoothies – Blended fruit smoothies – Oatmeal or rice porridge (well-cooked and blended) – Herbal teas (non-caffeinated)
  • Day 8 and Beyond: Soft Diet – Cooked and mashed vegetables (carrots, pumpkin, spinach) – Well-cooked grains (rice, quinoa, couscous) – Lean protein sources (chicken, fish, tofu) – Low-fat dairy or dairy alternatives – Scrambled eggs – Soft fruits (bananas, cooked apples) – Cooked and pureed legumes (lentils, beans)
  • General Guidelines: – Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. – Gradually reintroduce fiber to your diet to prevent constipation, but avoid excessive fiber intake initially. – Avoid spicy, greasy, and fried foods that may irritate the digestive system. – Chew food thoroughly to aid digestion and minimize strain during bowel movements. – Consume smaller, more frequent meals to avoid overloading your digestive system. – Listen to your body and avoid any foods that cause discomfort or irritation.
  • Foods to Avoid: – Spicy foods – Greasy and fried foods – Caffeinated beverages – Carbonated drinks – Foods high in refined sugars

Remember, it’s important to consult your healthcare provider or surgeon before making any dietary changes after surgery. They can provide personalized guidance based on your specific condition and recovery progress.
