Hi, your situation sounds alot like mine was fter my surgery in 4/12. like you my new stomach did not tolerate eggs or tuna and chicken salad which i loved before surgery nearly made me gag, but you might need to experiment with different foods especially Protein Shakes slowly incorporating various regular foods. I started with oatmeal and worked my way up to ground beef and ground turkey. Pretty soon i could digest thingd=s well. nine months later I still yet have issues with certain especially in the morning. keep moving it all get better with time.

Used to cook for a family of 6, these days cook as little as possible. Lol! I do bake tilapia with a spoonful of salsa on top, wrapped in foil @ 350 for 25-30 minutes. Love Michaelangelo's chicken picatta (at my Walmart). Chick-Fil-A's grilled chicken nuggets. Greek yogurt for Breakfast. Frozen turkey meatballs. Outback Special 8 oz steak is a meal for 3+ days. In a pinch Pure Protein Protein Bars. food has totally lost it's appeal!

I did chicken breast in crockpot with rotel and light cream cheese. Shred the chicken once its nice and tender (easier to eat) eat alone, in small tortilla or in won ton wraps. Yumm!

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      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.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂
