I probably wouldn't. My book says 9 weeks for things such as nuts and higher Fiber foods. I was probably 7 months out when I first had it.

Its hard not to- but dont do it.

My NUT says its super dangerous to eat popcorn the first 6 months (gets stuck) and its a slider food with no real nutritional value to you at this point.

It's definitely a slider food! 3 weeks out is way too soon, most people are still just eating mushies/purees at that point. Think about how hard those hulls would be on your newly-healing staple line. I didn't have popcorn until close to 6 months after surgery, and even now it's a very rare treat because it is one of the true sliders for me.

I will have 1-1/2-2 weeks of Clear Liquids and then third week through 5 or 6 it will be Full liquids then pureed, Soft, etc. I was told expect close to 2 months before eating actual solid foods. I would imagine popcorn kernels and hulls would be extremely hard on the belly.

Lord have mercy, no. The next time you cut or scrape yourself, grind some popped popcorn into the wound. Now, just imagine a staple line with stomach acid. Ummm, yummy.

Just in case you need one more "no" vote, I'm in. Don't eat the popcorn.< /p>

I concur with the others. My concern would be the kernels. You know how they get in your teeth, imagine it getting in your wound.

      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.
