Supplements after colon resection

Posted by fwpoole @fwpoole, Jun 23, 2019

Just had a “fist sized” tumor and 12” of large intestine removed less than a week ago. No pathology yet. Already started solid “soft” foods. When can I start taking supplements like turmeric again.

Hi @fwpoole, welcome to Connect. You ask a great question. I recommend asking your surgeon before starting on any supplements. Will you be returning for you first follow-up this week?


I don’t have a follow up appt scheduled yet. I was just released from the hospital on Friday (6/21).


I would ask your surgeon as well. Mine had me wait almost a month before taking supplements and vitamins.
