Tips for holiday gathering post-surgery – health enews

It’s important to enjoy the holidays, especially if you recently had a major surgery. Chelsey Daniels, physician assistant on Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center’s abdominal transplant and hepatobiliary surgery team, shares the following helpful eating and gathering suggestions for anyone who recently had a major surgery, including an abdominal transplant.
“Many patients have likely had a major surgery to give them more quality years of life. I always encourage our patients to modify their plans to create a healthy environment that supports their post-surgical recovery,” says Daniels. “Especially around the holidays, we want our patients to have the most enjoyable experience, creating positive memories with their family and friends.”
