Foods and Herbs for foot surgery recovery?

I have been searching for the right things to be eating while I am rehabbing my foot surgeries and would like to know if there is anything special that people have been trying.
I am eating dairy, white meat, several fruits, a few vegetables and even getting in the sunshine for a bit each day (not easy in Oregon in February but we are having a rare sunny streak of days) for the Vitamin D.
I haven't seen anything herbal or additives to help in the recovery process but would be very interested in hearing what all of you have done or see anything that I am missing.
Thanks for your help!

Hi levels of Vitamin C should help.

Also Fish Oil to help reduce inflammation.

Good luck!

I didn't think about fish oil, I normally take that just as a matter of course but was told not to before my surgery due to its blood thinning properties. I will start up again, thanks.
