Diet

Continue diet as prescribed at hospital. Some may continue fluid and salt restriction, some may have to restrict iron and Vitamin K rich food stuff. The patient needs to take easily digestible food in small amount with more frequency initially, then gradually adjust to normal meal pattern. Take a light diet in the night. Do not go to bed with a heavy stomach. Monitor the weight and urinary output. A sudden increase in weight may be indicating fluid retention.
