Recommended Posts

I've been doing well since my surgery 9 days ago...I almost didnt feel banded ( wait this gets better)...Ive had mushie potatoes and cottage cheese...what a breeze!! So today I thought ..Gee..Im hungry...SO I grabbed a string cheese from the fridge....60 seconds later I was bent over the sink in PAIN..PAIN I tell ya!!! Stuck. I started spitting slime like nobodys business....and then...BURP...BURP...no more pain....

Ya know...Ive read about flamming golf balls and PBs....Now I know why they are so hated. UGH!:speechles Bring on the Soup anyday.

damn... this eating business is scary isnt it?? i am 11 days out. i was hungry at dinner time, but im getting a little sick of Soup and Protein Shakes. I tried egg salad for the first time. Made 2 eggs with low fat mayo and ate about 1-1/2. I ate tiny tiny spoonfuls cuz I was nervous. Thankfully it went down fine. I probably could have eaten the whole thing, but I was afraid.... I guess this is going to take some practice!!

Hey Ladies! I can definitley relate.. I was eating mashed potatos and apple sauce last night.. I either ate too fast or too much.. a whole lot of burping and pressure in my chest. Scared the heck out of me! I will eat slower now.. Is the light pressure between my breasts the indicator saying that I'm full? Hmmm... Also.. 11 days out and I'm burping alot.. are you guys? Does burping indicate eating or drinking too fast?

Hey superwoman... meet wonderwoman!

Wonderwoman because when I shove food in my mouth without thinking... swallow ... no chewing... and then WONDER why I am hanging over the toilet?

I wasn't allowed mashed taters until I was 4 weeks out.... boy oh boy I'm jealous lolol !!!

My first BP was on a late night piece of chocolate that I didn't chew...yeah you'd think it would have melted.. NOT!

Lesson learned.

Kim- I burp a lot too. I would assume it's pretty normal. I have a big hiccup or burp and then pressure when my band is full. I would assume that any type of pain/pressure would be an indicator of fullness. If your not sure, stop for a few minutes. If you're still hungry, you can eat after you are sure you aren't full.

I've been on full liquids immediately after surgery on May 26th. I did however, have Clear Liquids the first few days. I even got sick (no golf ball or slime) the day after which was probably from the anesthesia.

I love cottage cheese and apple sauce together...yummy. :hungry: Last night I really wanted cheese so I carefully ate 4 slices of the new Sargento super deli thin cheddar cheese. You can almost see through it and it melts in your mouth. I ate it very slowly. It felt great on my stomach and so satisfying. Before eating it, I did double check to make sure it was on my list of approved foods. :clap2:

If I feel ANYTHING in my chest, stomach, or throat, I will stop and let things settle. I find myself eating too fast sometimes. I have to really concentrate on eating slowly. My kids laugh at me for using their old baby spoons. Boy, this does take practice doesn't it?

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
