Hi,

 

Due to having to discontinue fish oil in preparation for my 3/6 surgery, I am finding my already impaired cognitive abilities are worsened.   It also affecting my mood.

 

Has anyone who couldn't take fish oil found an acceptable substitute that didn't have similar type properties?

 

Thanks!

PS - I understand it is my responsibility to make sure that anything you suggest would be acceptable for me to take.

Thanks Gia, I have been eating sardines about every other day but unfortunately, it hasn't helped.

I agree Alto.   And according to many herbalists, that concern transcends to most of the herbs that are forbidden before surgery but shouldn't be.

 

Unfortunately, I don't have the energy to fight on this.   I am saving it in case I am told to fast after midnight for an afternoon sugery.   Then i am going to quote the American Association of Anethesiology Guidelines that say a minimum 8 hour fast is sufficient of solid foods, 6 hours is ok for toast and tea, and 3 hours is good for clear liquids.

 

It just bugs the sh-t out of me that these folks aren't up on the lastest guidelines.    But that is nothing new.

PS - I have not been given a surgery time yet just so people know.

They just want you to be safe, so they're being very conservative.
