nutrition & weight management

Optimising your weight and eating a healthy diet before surgery will help you in your recovery.

This is because it can:

  • promote good wound healing
  • help your body fight infections
  • help maintain your strength

The key is to eat a variety of healthy foods from each of the 5 food groups:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Wholegrains
  • Protein
  • Dairy products

Please contact your GP or an accredited dietitian to optimise your weight or if you have experienced unexplained weight loss.
