Not usually: Once you have fully healed, then a regular diet should be fine. Some really stringy foods such as celery can bother some people, and some foods such as asparagus can cause a lot of odors. Everyone has a different tolerance to some foods, and you may need to watch what you eat for a while to see how certain foods may affect you.
