What to Expect After Surgery

The following are general guidelines for after surgery care.

Please pay close attention to your surgeon’s specific instructions and ask him/her if you have any additional questions.

Following your surgery: If you had bariatric surgery, you must follow the Stage 1 Dietary guidelines outlined in the handout given to you by our Dietitian, Mary. For all other types of surgery, it is a good idea to be on a bland, soft diet until you have a normal bowel movement.

Physical Limitations: Do not lift more than 10 pounds for 4 weeks following your surgery.


If you have any questions regarding your after surgery care, give call our office a call at 858.457.4917. Our office is convenient to both metro San Diego and North County.
