    Foods to avoid soon after a pancreatic resection include:

    • Fibrous meats: beef, pork, lamb, veal
    • Raw fruits with skin: apples, pears, plums, peaches, cherries, etc.
    • Raw berries: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
    • White rice (but brown rice is usually okay)
    • Fresh citrus fruit (but pulp-free juices are usually okay)
    • Nuts (but smooth nut butters are usually okay)
    • Fresh bread 
    • Raw vegetables
    • Legumes
    • Carbonated beverages

    If you are diabetic, you may need to adjust these suggestions to meet your dietary restrictions.
