I love tortillas too but I still cannot eat anything like that. I had my sleeve 02/22/11 and I have tried and it makes me throw up and bread included so I am scared to try again too soon. I might wait a couple of months and then try again.

I am almost 4 months out and just had my first whole wheat tortilla with taco meat and cheese last week. I ate about 1/2 of it.

From about 2 months out I had a weight watchers or multigrain tortilla with refried Beans, cheese and Tomato slices and in the panini press to make it nice and soft. At first I would have just a quarter of it,, at around 4 months out I could have a whole one. Now(8 months out) I stay away f rom them as much as I can cause I like them too much!

I'm crying right now!! I LOVE tortillas and usually eat them all the time (i'm pre-op). I ran into someone who had the RNY and he's 2 years out and he said that he still cant eat them. They get stuck. OH, I'm so sad right now!!! LOL.....

Don't be sad. Have a tortilla funeral and say your goodbyes. I and just shy of 2 months (sleeved 3/7) and I stay away because of the carbs - whoa it's more than a day's worth in those. Any bread not toasted will or can get stuck. I use whole wheat crackers if I need something. You can do it I promise : )

Don't pack your tortilla's suitcase yet!! There are these incredible Carb Balance Tortillas by Mission, they are delish, and I do not get the stuck feeling with them. They only have 18 cabrs per tortilla, which trust me is more then what fits, I think 11 grams of Fiber, and 5 grams of protein!!! Trust me, they are a great alternative that is not actually an alternative.

I think those might be the same ones Eggface uses...I'll check it out. I'm dying to get far enough out that I can make an enchilada filling and then crisp up a low carb tortilla to use as my chip...yum!!!!

Well, I am going to be 8 week post-op on Wednesday, and I would say I have had tortillas for about....two weeks now, possibly three. I eat them soft, had not even thought of crunchy, guess I figured the softer it is the easier it is on my tummy.

That's so good to know! I am almost 8 months out, and I don't do well with regular tortillas. I normally stay away from them completely, but maybe these are better! Thanks for the sugguestion!
