I broke my nose a couple of years ago. I have enough money to finally get it fixed. Is there any supplements I should take before or after? I know Im suppose to stop taking Vitamin E, Fish oil and no green tea two weeks before and after surgery. Also since I will be having a hard time eating, is there something that is soft or liquid I can consume besides bone broth? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was going to order arnica to help with the bruising.

This question has been asked before, the most recent was two days ago. See the search bar on the upper right? Type in "surgery" and you'll get a decent list. http://paleohacks.com/questions/180429/post-surgery-healing-diet-supplements#axzz2LYmJ6R9M

Chicken cut up with mashed avocado was my savior after getting all four of my wisdom teeth pulled (I'm 15). I ate chicken w/ avocado almost exclusively for 4 days. After 4 days, I was able to eat everything w/ caution. Most people are able to eat hard foods after about 7 days, so I consider my 4 day heal a paleo perk.

For quick recovery, I would try to stay away from pain killers as much as possible. The reason for pain is to discourage use of a particular area so it can heal faster. Good luck.

Bone broth, CoQ10 Ubiquinol (can also be found in animal hearts), D3 (can be found outdoors :).

Something like Wobenzym. Wobenzym kept me from getting a scar when I cut my finger pretty badly.

Certain amino acids seem to help wounds heal faster, so before???and especially after???surgery, make sure your meals and snacks feature fish, chicken, eggs (especially the whites), brown rice, walnuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Some studies suggest that vitamin C and zinc can also help you mend; drinking a glass of orange juice and eating the daily recommended amount of fruit and produce should provide all the C you need, while a fortified breakfast cereal is an easy way to get zinc. If you take a multivitamin, choose one that delivers B12 and iron, both of which aid bone marrow in forming new blood cells. Finally, consider supplements of one amino acid in particular:
