5.2.6. Whipple’s Initial Postoperative Feeding - Oral diet upgrades as per surgeon. May require jejunal feeding if prolonged gastroparesis. Have drinks 30 minutes before or after meals, instead of with meals, Avoid foods and drinks containing lots of sugar e.g. cordial, soft drink, sports drinks, energy drinks, lollies.

5.2.7. Laparoscopic fundoplication Initial Postoperative Feeding - encourage to eat and drink slowly Diet = fluid, pureed or soft – two weeks with R/V Food Groups Foods to avoid = plain bread, donuts, crackers, course/dry cereals, cereals with fruit and nuts Breads/cereals Vegetables & Legumes Foods to avoid = raw veg, hard fibrous or stringy veg Avoid fizzy drinks, chewing gum or drinking straws to reduce bloating/gas. Sit upright when eating and remain upright for 60 minutes after meals.
