Leblisa Posted June 21, 2013 Report Share Posted June 21, 2013 Online, I stumbled upon a list of supplements that Angelina Jolie's surgical team had her use before/after surgery to enhance her tissue healing. With my surgery coming up in 5 days, I think I'll do some of them. Here's some of what they said: Vit C, Multi and Zinc - daily for one week before and one week after surgery to enhance wound healing. To reduce risk of infection use Hibiclens soap to scrub the area daily for 3 days prior to surgery (I'll be sure to clean my head extra-well that morning, at least). To reduce postoperative nausea take Emend the night before surgery. Arnica Forte to reduce postoperative swelling, 2 capsules daily x 7 days starting the day prior to surgery. To help eliminate anesthesia from the system: Exchem beginning day before surgery and then another 7 days. There was more but not really applicable to CI surgery (as opposed to mastectomy/reconstruction surgery). Any thoughts??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
