Huh?!

I don't think chickens would make a good cutlery set.

Gotta love mobile devices and their auto correct.

Gerber is pretty high end. I have a Gerber cleaver ... can't find it after my last move, though. I think the most important aspect of a *good* knife is how it feels in your hand. Is it balanced well?

As far as utencils, which I'm guessing you're referring to since you mention taking smaller bites, just get a good steak knife. Do you have a honing blade?

Damn, I didn't even get the Gerber right on this.... I thought sure it was a question dealing with baby food not knives!!

I think this should read:

Someone mentioned I should buy myself children's cutlery set like the Gerber brand to help take smaller bites. Has anyone done this?

Yes. I have also heard of this and plan to do so. I found one of my kids baby spoons in the drawer and have been using that to eat yogurt in prep for surgery. Will be getting baby cutlery in the next few weeks.

I picked up some smaller spoons and forks in the appetizer section of a kitchen store. I love them!! Use them every day. My NUT had me do this pre op so I could get used to it. It sure makes you eat slower.

Love them!

I also got some p,.astic baby spoons at the dollar store. They are perfect for yogurt!

I used a teaspoon and didn't bother to buy new cutlery. I did buy a small rice bowl and side plate to use to manage portions though.

I bought a little set called Toddler Toss and Take off of Amazon they come in a little case and I LOVE them! They slow me down, allow me to savor my food longer and keep my bites small to protect my sleeve! One of the best purchases I made! :)

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
