I have just had my appendix removed. Do I need to change my diet until the post-surgery pain improves? Is 'gurgling' or trapped wind common post-op?

I have just had my appendix removed. Do I need to change my diet until the post-surgery pain improves? Is 'gurgling' or trapped wind common post-op?

Surgical removal of the appendix causes the rest of the small/large bowel to act irregular and irritable. This should slowly regain a normal flow pattern. Avoid heavy foods with high bulk. Avoid gas forming foods. Add probiotics, yogurt. Avoid constipation. ...Read more
