I got some surgey two days ago --> I had a leg wound and it became infected with MRSA. They cut it out and drained (holy crap that hurt worse than anything I could imagine) the wound.
I now have a 1.5 x 4 inch wound -- (pic below). I spoke with the dietitian (PHD who knew his ****....)and we went over Calorie needs.
I'm not doing much moving around and no cardio/exercise so calorie needs were reduced from a 3200-3400 maintenance to 2600 maintenance. Protein needs he said are going to be in the 350-450 range for quickest healing and he said he wasn't too concerned about the fat and carbs because I eat a balanced diet.
Does that sound about right to anyone with medical knowledge or experience in dealing with this -- and NO, going on to google or wikipedia does not count.
^^^ Dark spot is my muscle tissue.
Thanks guys, I figured this would be an interesting subject to discuss.
