Taking diet supplements can severely compromise the healing process.  You need to wait at least 4-6 weeks for the healing process to be well advanced. Before  you even contemplate it.  I recommend waiting 2 months before doing any sort of diet or pills.  Please ask you surgeon for their recommendations.


Good luck, and thanks for the question.

Suplementos dieteticos pueden afectar el proceso de sanamiento de una cirugia. Usted deve de esperar minimo 4-6 semanas hasta que este proceso este avanzado. Antes de que usted considere hacerlo yo le recomiendo esperar dos meses antes de comenzar hacer algun tipo de dieta o tomar pastillas. Por favor pregunte a su cirujano por sus recomendaciones.


Suerte y Gracias por la pregunta
