The relationship between the onset of colon cancer and "eating" is extraordinary. Eating "right" is beneficial to preventing and fighting cancer. Eating "wrongly" may cause colon cancer or promote its recurrence. How to eat after colon cancer surgery? This is something worthy of attention, and should be treated in general principles and specific situations.
Everyone also knows that the main cause of colon cancer is dietary problems. Animal foods with high protein, high fat, and low fiber are too common. Too much pig, beef, and mutton are consumed, while cereals , Insufficient intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, and eating too "good" food is not conducive to the prevention and control of colon cancer. Research has also analyzed the pathogenesis. For example, the increase in cholanthracene is one of the causes of colon cancer.
Fried, barbecued, smoked and pickled foods should also be banned. For people without diseases, eating them won't do anything. Just don't eat them for a long time. However, it can't be absolutely banned for postoperative patients, but it must also be banned intentionally. These foods contain large amounts of polycyclic aromatic acetylenes, nitrosamines, or nitrosamine precursors, which are not conducive to colon cancer recovery. You can't even drink alcohol. Most people stop drinking after surgery, right?
Eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, less animal-based high-protein, high-fat foods, and not eating fried, smoked, and pickled foods are general dietary requirements after colon cancer surgery. The specific situation must be adjusted according to the patient's physical condition.
Stage I and some stage II colon cancers do not require adjuvant chemotherapy after surgery, which is the recovery period. Other cases of colon cancer require about half a year of adjuvant therapy after surgery, so there is a treatment phase and a recovery phase.
During the treatment phase, patients are generally weak, do not eat much, and need to supplement their nutrition, so they need high-nutritional and high-energy foods. Some people have said that eating meat is not good. Isn't this contradictory? It is not recommended to eat red meat, such as pigs, beef, and mutton. White meat, such as fish, chicken, duck and other poultry, is recommended. Some people say that meat without legs is better than meat with two legs, and meat with two legs is better than meat with four legs. That's true.
Only with satisfactory nutritional supplements can we have better immunity and resistance to fight against the disease. Therefore, it is also said here that the idea of "starving tumors to death by not eating" is wrong, and the concept of "fatting" is not necessary either. If it is too harsh, it may affect nutritional supply.
During the recovery stage, you can eat "normally". Just follow the general principles of colon cancer and pay attention to some details. For example, patients with diarrhea should have less crude fiber food and less laxative food such as bananas. The opposite should be true for constipation.
