Eating overseas after surgery


I am a 47 year old female. Two weeks after surgery I will be traveling to Paris, France and then on to Dublin, Ireland. Are there any foods/drinks that I should avoid for healing purpose?


As always after any surgery, limit the amounts of alcohol and try to increase your protein intake a bit.  Otherwise, have a great trip and enjoy the flavors of the countries you visit.


Try to eat a well balanced diet, avoid excessive alcohol consumption and perhaps most importantly avoid smoking or smoky environments.
