  1. The boiled egg was too dry for me the scramble had some chees and seem to slide down the throat better instead of dry clumpy hard boil egg. Plus i use oil in my scramble
  2. For me i want to eat a lot of things but even if i bought them id only b able to take a few bites then id b full. You are dealing with head hunger possibly. If you tried eating youd prob be full after a couple bites lol

    Help! I ate McDonald's 2 weeks post op

    I was told redness could b bad so i would just call and ask the bariatric nurse at the center. They have seen n heard it all before and it wouldnt be a bother. Also with telehealth you may even b able to upload a pic right from your phone and send to them thats what i do lol makes things so much faster

    Pre surgery diet freak out

    Yes, I did. Just remember to do it far enough out that stomach wont have food in it. For me i did it 4 days prior to surgery and straight shake for remaining three Forgot to mention I was allowed a small dinner on those days by surgeon with two shakes but instead i had the pizza that one night and followed it with days of just shakes to clear it out
  13. Some believe that the body should pack on nourishment beforehand because you will lack it initially post op. Its an interesting hypothesis.

    Pre surgery diet freak out

    I did my best which was to have some pizza four days prior to surgery and breadsticks. This is called food funeral. The other days i just had the shakes and surgeon said surgery went perfectly so no harm done. Mainly they want liver small and tummy empty

    Wind issues

    Beans prob dont help. I have the burping problem mostly right now prob cause i just had the surgery couple weeks ago. The surgeon prescribed simethicone have you tried that? It helps the burps to come up right then not sure how it affects the other end 🥴

    Botox shots for migraines cured mine. I go every three months and suffer through 30 or so shots then i dont even need an abortive for the next three months. I feel the predome symptoms start to come on but the migraine cant seem to come on. Highly recommend!
  17. Its free to see the dietician for me and many ideas are better than just a few- couldnt hurt

    3 months out- upper left pain

    Okay you do need to tell surgeon but also your primary care physician. The reason is that sometimes kidney pain can be like that. With the abdomen there is also this thing called referred pain where the actual spot of the pain might not be the problem area. Visit surgeon and pcp to see if they think you need further testing. I do have some pain there but not in back, and was given xray by surgeon to see what was going on. You might need further testing which isnt something we can help you with. I hope you find some relief 🍀

    Celebrate soft chews

    I have a bag of soft chew carmel from them. I will try one of those tomorrow to see if it makes me sick too. I did see the cherry ones on the website that you are talking about. I am not sure if its a soft chew tolerance problem or a calcium tolerance problem yet. I am supposed to be getting a sample kit from BA already. The vitamins are just so pricy to end up with a batch that makes you sick 🥴

    Celebrate soft chews

  23. I like this its pretty good. We will probably have stalls n gains along the way and its a good way to look at it
  24. Set up an appointment w the dietician like the other poster said and go over food log they have seen it many times before and probably have some tips for you
