How will my diet change after the nephroureterectomy surgery?

Your doctor will tell you what the best diet is after this type of surgery.

Right after the nephroureterectomy, you will have an intravenous catheter for hydration. At first, you will be able to tolerate liquids and you will gradually resume a normal diet.

The process of resuming a typical diet might be a slow one. Based on how well your body is adapting to the surgery, you will start tolerating solid food again. You will have a decreased appetite right after the surgery, but it will return to normal as you start recovering.
