Post-op and joint-healing foods

kevanishyn | Feb 12, 2004 07:48 PM

Hi, All,

I broke my ankle on some black ice this weekend, and had surgery on Monday, complete with titanium plate. My foot is still too swollen to cast, and I'm spending the next week immobile and several following that with severely limited mobility.

Do you hounds have any suggestions for foods that help with joint healing and might also, in the short run, help to decrease swelling? My husband is now managing the kitchen (and keeping life bearable for me :). While he's not great at improvising, he's great with recipies and direction, and is good with fish, pasta and vegetables.

Any thoughts on a fracture-friendly food for healing?
