Post-Op: Lemon & Hot Sauce

Recommended Posts

How long should I wait before I reintroduce lemon juice and hot sauce?

I am on thin liquids right now. My doctor said that I could drink natural vegetable juice. I am really loving it but it would be yummier with lemon. Do you think it would be OK to use a small amount or would it be too soon?

How about hot sauce? (Mild, not too spicy, something like Tapatio)

Would that be pushing it?

I had my surgery with Dr Aceves on 03/18. I have been drinking fresh squeezed lemon juice and even the bottled lemon juice in warm Water each morning within a week after surgery and have had no problems. I have also been able to put hot sauce on foods with no problems either as soon as I ws able to eat solid food. I hope that helps.
