Here are some foods that are important for wound healing, you can make a Blast with them! Protein - Since you will need higher amounts of protein to help with the healing process, I would recommend a protein powder. Here is a great article on how to choose a powder: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/which-protein-powder-best-you Zinc - helps increase wound healing. Use foods like cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, pine nuts, sesame seeds, pecans, rolled oats. Vitamin C - need this to make collagen in the body, which makes up your skin. Use foods like oranges, kiwis, strawberries, red bell peppers, brussels sprouts, lemons and limes Collagen - can be found in legumes. Silicon - hemp, radish, alfalfa, oats, bell peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers Nutrient dense foods like kale and dark red and blue berries. Also drink lots of water and when you are able to eat solid foods include some high protein foods like fish, eggs, chicken, lean turkey... those will help speed recovery as well.

is there any ingredients i should stay away from before surgery ? and as far as the protein powder how often should i use it for after ?
Please ask your Dr. for specifics! In general, for added protein, a serving of protein powder can be added to each NutriBlast. You may wish to add more than a serving, however this will depend on how much you consume outside of Blasting. For wound healing, you could look to about 1.2g protein/kg body weight per day total.
