When an adequate high-protein diet has been given patients both before and after surgery, the destruction of body protein has been almost completely prevented in spite of extreme stress; and such a diet often makes the expense and discomfort of intravenous and/or tube feedings unnecessary. A month or more of preparation before surgery is important for all persons, especially those who are already ill. Malnourished and ill individuals are poor surgical risks, have adverse reactions to anesthetics, are susceptible to shock and infections, and heal slowly. Animals deficient in protein for only five days prior to surgery require twice as long to heal as their well-fed litter mates even though given adequate protein afterward.8 Because the blood protein may remain normal, a patient's protein intake can be far too low without the physician recognizing it.
During the preparatory period, protein grams should be counted, and six small meals supplying at least 25 grams each taken daily. The protein can be supplied by fresh whole or skim milk fortified with powdered milk, yeast, soy flour, and eggs; and as much meat, fish, cheese, eggs, yogurt, custard, or cereals cooked in milk as can be tolerated. Digestive enzymes with bile and hydrochloric acid should be used to insure greater absorption, and yogurt or acidophil us milk or culture taken to destroy gas-forming intestinal bacteria. Supplements should be relied upon to furnish nutrients not readily obtained from foods, and vitamins, B2, C, pantothenic acid, and the anti-stress factors kept particularly high. Because persons mildly deficient in vitamin B6 are subject to nausea and vomiting, taking 10 milligrams or more daily often pays rich dividends.
Not only does a period of preparation speed up healing and thus decrease suffering and expense, but at times it makes surgery unnecessary. My files contain dozens of such reports: a woman whose bursitis cleared up while she was preparing for an operation on her shoulder; several people whose hemorrhoids disappeared; numerous youngsters whose tonsils and adenoids have not had to be removed; other individuals whose kidney stones, gallstones, or prostates stopped causing trouble; and even one woman whose inflamed uterus cleared up. Whatever the outcome, the reward more than pays for the effort.
The Evening Before Surgery
The main cause of vomiting after surgery is that the blood sugar is allowed to drop too low. Usually little or no food is eaten the night before and none the day of surgery; hence fat alone is burned for energy and acetone acidosis develops. Although retching after abdominal surgery can be sheer torture, vomiting and the need for glucose injections can be largely prevented if during the late evening of the day before surgery the patient will eat a pound of some fat-free candy such as jelly beans, gumdrops, or marshmallows. This large amount of sugar allows the liver and muscles to store a maximum quantity of glycogen, or body starch, which can be gradually converted into sugar during the following morning. A San Francisco surgeon who is a personal friend has used this technic successfully for so many years that he has been given the nickname of "Dr. jelly Bean.” Some physicians recommend that heavily sweetened lemonade be taken throughout the day prior to surgery, but if many hours intervene, much of the sugar is changed into fat.
As a final nightcap on the eve before surgery, 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C, 500 milligrams of pantothenic acid, and 20 milligrams of vitamin B2 and B6 might be taken as a gift to the adrenals and to increase antibodies; and 2,500 units of vitamin D, 300 units of vitamin E, and 500 milligrams of calcium lactate be given to the blood to insure rapid clotting.
