Calories/protein: In addition to surgical treatment, your physician will add medications to treat the disease. Monitor symptoms and temperature. Drink fluids, eat a healthy diet, and ensure adequate calories and protein in your diet. Please also follow up with your GI specialist and a nutritionist.
