Supplements Pre-Surgery

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what, if any, supplements people took before surgery? Normally I would take Arnica, but my surgery instructions list it as one of the blood thinning substances to avoid. Seems weird, as arnica is regularly recommended for pre and post surgery, and I find it really effective.

I know that vitamin C and zinc are other common pre-surgery supplements.  Anyone got any other suggestions?

 

Dr Fleming uses the rapid recovery technique, which means no drains, no strapping, no need for bras post surgery and (my friends who have used him assure me) minimal pain. So I'm not too worried about the recovery, but want to do what I can to speed things along!

 

Thanks heaps.

I've been taking vitamin C, my pre-surgery instructions said to take a mulitivitamin but I haven't been because of the vitamin E being blood thinner. Well I am only 4 days out so I guess I won't take vitamin C anymore then. It's all so confusing on what you can and can't take, I was just going to take nothing I should have just stuck to that I think
