Welcome to XXXXXXX
Diet - Healthy of course. Low fat/ less oil foods. Plenty of Fresh fruits and vegetables. Vitamin B-complex and C supplementation is a must.
Exercise - Regular walk, breathing exercises are advisable.
DO NOT lift heavy weights for six moths if it is a open surgery. If it is lap, then 3 months is ok.
You may carry on with regular day to day activities.
Hope this helps. Kindly write back for doubts if any,

I am a 28 Y Male. For the last 5 months, starting on May 28th of this year I have been experiencing excrutiating pain. It started out with a very sharp interior chest wall pain that at very first I thought was a strong case of heartburn, after a couple of days I started noticing that the pain would feel so bad I would actually contract my hands into a backwards position as if I had cerebrial palsey for about 10 seconds which seemed like a reaction to the pain or maybe it made the pain not as bad, I could not really tell why I was doing it. Now 5 months later I am almost to the point of being bed ridden some days. My whole body aches extremely bad, I will have very odd muscle lock ups, Mostly in my leg muscles, twitching, and I contract my feet sometimes now as well as my hands. I still have the chest wall pain from time to time, and Feel like somedays I will die the pain is so bad. I lay in bed for hours sometimes screaming. I have seen 5 different doctors since this all has started. Family Doctor, Nuerologist, general surgeon, 2 different rhuemotoligists and I have gotten nowhere. They have done every blood test imaginable. The only test that shows up out of whack is my ANA. It is 1:640. Although that is positive, I have a normal sed rate, RNP Antibodies, SM Antibodies, histone is normall, I have been tested for Sjogrens, Hoshimotos Thyroiditis, Hep C and all came back either normal or negative, I have no inflamation, And my CBC was normal as well. I have had laproscopic gallbladder surgery on sep-30th and that did nothing for me. They have also tested my thyroid an my TCH was .27 which is a little low, however my T3 and T4 were normall they said, my Vitamin D was also normal. At this point my doctors are questioning the validity of my pain, and while they question it my pain gets worse and worse by the week. I have felt pain in my life, I am sure everybody has. This is a 10 on a 10 scale and it is not like anything I have ever felt before, not only is it painful, but I am weak, and I am getting to a nonfunctional state quickly. My mom is a nurse, my brother a paramedic. I myself do not have any medical degree other than just what I have learned growing up and through this illness. This is the best description I can give. I would like to know what this could be?
