    I had the same surgeon and i was canceled back in January it really sucks. I don't know if you are through Kaiser but you can call your bariatric case worker and see if they can get you in at another facility i know west la and a few other facilities are still doing surgeries and there are cancelations all the time. My friend who was canceled did this and got in a few weeks later. It's worth a shot. Good Luck and hope you can get something figured out.

    I’m only 20 days out, but I have been using salt and chili powder on my eggs with no negative consequences. Other things get seasoned well too.
    I’d rather stay on liquids than eat bland food.

    yes - it's fine. I was pretty sensitive to spicy food the first few weeks (fortunately, that didn't last long as I love spicy food!), but as long as you can tolerate whatever seasonings you use, they're fine

    I used seasonings without any issue. Some people can’t do spicy early out like others said so keep that in mind.

    I had no problems at all with seasonings and like future skydiver (love the name I’ve always wanted to do it and now I’m not afraid of snapping the harness) said, it helped keep me on the mushies longer. For me, nothing felt any worse than pre op spicy wise, if I could handle it before it was the same after.

    Oh, yeah season to your heart & your tummy’s content. Just watch herbs to begin - they can be too coarse & dry & also watch spices as your tummy can be a bit sensitive for a while.

    Yes! May it be smooth sailing for us both. I’m hoping I don’t get stuck staying at the hospital. I was told you just stay the one day 🤷‍♀️ I’m honestly not looking forward to the first 2 weeks.

    Tip from a June surgery post op: start taking benefiber preop! The constipation is bad after surgery.
