Coping with solids

Good morning from a warm and sunny Normandy...


We have had visitors all week, so spent much time cooking for everyone, and trying out new foods for my new stomach!


I have had some lovely salmon with a little ratatouille, and last night..... I had a tbspn of chilli con carne, with a splodge of guacamole and a splash of creme fraiche!


I had a difficult day last week. I went to the UK by overnight ferry, and went to get some breakfast, but the overpowering smell of fried food made me want to gag, so I thought I would get something on the train from Portsmouth to London... Managed to get a cup of hot chocolate only :sad0:

Got to my meeting in London, and was there from 1030 until 3pm - no-one went for lunch :lol0:

Arrived at hotel 4.15pm, having had nothing to eat... They didn't do food :lol0::scared0: Directed me to a mini supermarket - which was Polish, so didn't understand any of the packets (recognised pickled herrings, sauerkraut and various sausages!). I found a sandwich, so threw away the bread and ate the egg and bacon filling (which was sparse and horrible :angry:).


Went out in the evening to see Rod Stewart at the 02 Arena :thumbup: Was dancing all night, drank a small bottle of water. Still no food :crying:


Incredibly thirsty when I got back to hotel. Bought a cold can of Coke Zero with ice - worried about bubbles, but it stayed down, and was delicious!


I'm pleased to be on 'normal food' albeit in tiny bite portions. Most things I have tried have been fine.


Must make an appointment to see the endocrinologist for blood tests to check my levels of vitamins, enzymes etc. Trouble is, this is France in Jul/Aug. Everything shuts down till they get back from their holibobs their hols in September :thumbup:

well i guess there is a wee bit of geography separating us but I'm happy that we are friends. i think my stall is over down by 3 lbs. I found out that my vitamin D levels are terrible so i will start taking supplements for that next week. I read that pts who have high vit D levels loose weight fast than those with lower levels. I'm 6wks post op really having trouble with protein supplements so trying to get it from food i can drink like a fish but food is ugh!!!!!!!! :) AFTER ONLY A HALF CUP. So I think my weight is coming off a lot slower than most. But off is better than on so no more whinning. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for letting me vent:blush:
