Gut Surgery – How Diet can Help Neuroendocrine Cancer Patients

Mar 23, 2021

 This booklet has been developed, in collaboration with the Royal Free Hospital to provide reliable dietary information for those with neuroendocrine cancer who may be considering or have had surgery of the gut (digestive system). The surgery may be to remove, ‘debulk’ or bypass neuroendocrine cancer or for an indirectly related condition, for example, removal of the gallbladder as treatment for gallstones.

As with any treatment, surgery can haveboth short and long term risks/bene ts andconsequences. Through this booklet we will discuss the possible effects of surgery and how diet may help you both prepare for surgery by improving your nutritional uptake and manage some of the symptoms you may experience post-op.
