First "puke!"



Day 9...OK...How am I eating? Well I had no problem with liquids, soups, pudding, applesauce...all very slowly the past 2-3 days. Today, however, I went too far. I got scrambled eggs and a sausage patty at McDonald's on the way to work. I thought, "I'll just cut it up small and eat it slowly"...and if I'd have done that, it might have worked. But, I got distracted and started eating too fast. I felt the restriction for the first time! I finally shut the door of my office and just let it come back up. It wasn't like throwing up...I hate that...it was fairly mild. However, I don't really want to do it again. So, slow and gentle is my game now.

I'm kind of glad it happened. I needed to feel what would happen.

Thanks for all the comments...this is very therapeudic (or however you spell that)!

I guess it has to happen for us to learn. I started eating (which I have done to early). Yogurt, pudding and oatmeal just are not filling me at all!! I felt like I was having no restrictions because I could eat a cup of pudding without problems. I felt my first restriction last night when I took a bite of hamburgar. Rather it was the hb or the bread...I don't know becasue I have heard both can be rough to eat. Sounds like you are still truckn' right along!!!

I'm a little nervous myself of getting stuck. I'm still on the full liquid diet, I seem to feel full after I have my 4 oz protein shake, so far so good. After you experienced being stuck you may just be scared straight.

Are you Day 9 post op? If so, I would be concerned if you were healed enough to be on solid foods again. I had to be only on liquids for a full 2 weeks post op prior to even starting on mushies. Then it was mushies for an additional 3 weeks.

Sausage is definitely a solid food, and at over 2 months since my surgery I still have avoided any of the foods which are known to be higher risk foods. "Dry meats" are notorious offenders in this category. I have not tried any breads or ground meat. My surgeon was very specific that these should not be attempted until 6 months post op.

Give yourself an opportunity to finish healing. When you have these higher risk foods, be mindful as you are eating them; small bites, alot of chewing, and eat slowly.

I have been banded for almost 2 years and I still have issues with eggs and meats like sausage. "Bandolina" also doesn't like milk products or steak, even filet mignon! You'll learn what works and what doesn't as you go along. Good luck!
