Do I need to change my diet?

Maybe. Only you can answer that- are you overweight, in good health, ill, fatigued? If you have issues, a change in diet can help many health problems.
Avoid processed food. Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product.. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and just enough protein.

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?

Very common, post op. Your diet post appendecomy should be soft and bland with slow advancement to a more normal diet. Post surgery 'gas' and 'gurgling' is normal.

Avoid gas forming foods. Add probiotics, yogurt. Avoid constipation. Read more...
