Anybody slurpped down a raw oyster yet? They have lots of Protein and very little fat, but they may not chew up that well. I am a month post-op and looking for interesting options.

been afraid to try them. in new england we have quahogs (yes from the family guy) and you eat the raw with no chewing. I am sure that they are high in Protein. but to have to chew them kind of turns me off

I think they would be okay - since it's not fried. However, 3oz of oysters doesn't have near the Protein fish does. I know I work hard to get my 60-70g of protein a day - and oysters don't have a lot......

I looked the nutrition up again and you are right, the Protein isn't that impressive. Sometime the data on MyFitnessPal are all over the place

I love oysters, and have a relatively loose band. The only foods I seem to have problems with are carbs- Pasta, bread, tortillas etc. And eating when I’m starving. I just slurped down 6 raw oysters with no problem. They slid right down. But they were small oysters. So I would say it depends on how tight your band is and how big the oysters are. What I did was order fresh oysters from the grocery store. I shucked them myself, then added a little lemon juice and salt. I did it in the privacy of my own home in case it didn’t go well. And it went great. I’m getting more next week!

I ❤️ oysters too ❤️

I think I had my first post-op raw oyster around 2 months after surgery. Just one at that time though, i slurped it and it was bigger than a "normal" bite for me so I didn't want to eat more just in case. My capacity for them increased with time, and now I could probably eat 4-6 of them (depending on size) by themselves comfortably in one regular sitting.

However, I was eating canned smoked oysters at around 4-5 weeks post op, i think. Maybe about 2-3 of them at a time.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
