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!

      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!
