  1. So I am nearly 2.5 years out from surgery and pretty much I am just not big on eating much meat even tho I have always loved it. Is this a surgery thing or just me?

    Eating Meat

    Probably not nearly enough. I’m 2.5 years out tho and doing ok. Iron is the only thing I can’t get to stay out without extra vitamins. Me I eat meat just not like I used too.

    Eating Meat

    Oh it doesn’t make me sick I’m just not interested in it. It’s a battle to eat it. I NEED the protein too.

    Eating Meat

    And it’s not that I don’t like it I just am not interested. It’s too much it seems like.

    Post your progress pics!

    My first pic is just after surgery cause I didn't have any before good ones. Started at 237 and that was heaviest. Surgery was 4/11/17 I didn't have to do preop diet cause I needed to maintain. 2nd pic is 7/25/17. 60 lbs down weighing in last week at 177. I want to be somewhere between 150-140.
  8. Honestly I have had some ginger ale and it's the only thing that has helped some of my nausea. No issues with it whatsoever and I am almost 3 months post op.
  9. I was able to eat right up til surgery. However this is getting you ready for after surgery cause it's tough.

    When can I eat a salad?

    I tried lettuce at like 6 weeks and couldn't do it. I'm 8 now and I have no issues but I was healed in the inside at 5 weeks and I know this cause I needed emergency surgery at 5 weeks for a very rare complication so he checked his work.

    Help with puréed foods

    I didn't do puréed foods. Tuna, canned chicken. Very soft well cooked veggies.

    After surgery

    I was sleeping on my stomach within the first week. I was uncomfortable in the hospital but I took no pain meds and never took any after going home either. I started walking a week post op. My major thing was learning what my Jody can tolerate with the few calories we are taking in. I am 4 weeks out this Tuesday and I can eat so much more but not very much at all. I don't get full on liquids at all tho. Vitamins are a pain but def take them.

    Is this normal?

    My dr knew going in. I'm active. And having gone thru something far worse medically I have found I heal extremely well and quickly. Thank you tho.

    Is this normal?

    I never took pain meds after surgery. Not even in the hospital. And since last week I have been walking 2-3.5 miles a day. Oh surgery was just 2 weeks ago today. I start softball tomorrow and bowl Tonight.
  16. I'm on stage 3 and the only thing my food needs to be is mashable with a fork.
  17. I'm exactly the same. Surgery 4/11. Lost 20 lbs and now nothing... leveling out but inches were still falling.

    Walk. I'm 2 weeks today and I bowl tonight and am playing softball tomorrow. Any cardio after 2 weeks is good. No lifting for 6 weeks.
