Problems Finding Foods I Like Post Op 1 Month



Recommended Posts

My guilty pleasure lately has been going to costco and trying the samples to see what tastes good to me now. The Aidells's meatballs were heavenly. I also liked crab meat, cream cheese, ham, and smoked salmon. I have been craving sauces so I made my own cocktail sauce(heavy on the horseradish) and had a shrimp cocktail with lots of lemon. It was great!

Im right there with you... almost 1 month out and I cant eat more then 2 super duper small bites of soft food. I can seem to get down a half of a pudding but thats it really. Also i dont feel "good" ful feeling I feel the lump in my throat i wanna throw up feeling..

food and eating time has become my enemy, i dread when i realize i havent ate anything and need to. GRR I too hope this passes.

I normally love Tamales and we have a fridge packed with them right now.. well I pulled one out to try and eat a bite and the smell made me gag..... my heart broke in a million pieces..lol

Seven weeks out and I tried to taste a piece of cake during Thanksgiving. I had to spit it out it tasted like pure flour. Yes our tastebuds changed. I hear that they eventually go back to normal. I would suggest checking out Eggface website.. there are tons of recipes, try different things and you'll come on something you like..

Maybe get used to this time and focus on something other than food.. in the long run that will be a good thing.. Find other things to fill your time with.. reading.. excersise.. talking to friends..

I hear it gets better!

Do a search on this site for ketosis. Basically, when your body is in a state of carb deprivation, acetone builds up in your saliva causing everything to taste funky. I talked to my NUT, who relayed this information to me. She told me to up my carbs by adding cooked veggies to my Soup purees and it really did the trick. Things tasted better, my energy level went up and my weight loss continued.

Talk to your NUT and see what they say.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
