OK gang, I was told to start full liquids day after surg. (I know some of you are jealous-sorry) and then progress to soft foods as tolerated. Had a very soft scrambled egg this morning for Breakfast and now if I take a deep breath in I get a sharp left sided pain near one of the incision sites. Progressed too fast??? Go back to full liquids?? Ideas?? Thanks everyone for all the support that I find here.

I was on full liquids for the full first week, then started progessing to soft foods. Did you happen to have a hernia repaired at time of banding? I would consider going back to full liquids until the pain passes and try again. Even though it was a soft scrambled egg, be sure to eat it slow and chew well as you heal. If the pain persists, call your doc. Good luck!

    Is riding the bike at the gym good for you?
