That makes sense. I can see why you wouldn’t want to reintroduce the foods that led to the surgery in the first place.
There is a lot of reflection happening in this pre-op stage that has me evaluating how I feel about food. I must get a dopamine rush for yummy foods because I would describe the feeling as “bliss”. I guess I’m hoping one day I can have a taste here and there without wanting to have it all. Or maybe I will not want a taste at all. That feels very foreign to me, not being excited about what I’m about to eat. It’s a part of me everyday and has been my whole life. Alas, which is why I am here.
