Wonder if we can have tomato sauces post op when we can eat solid food. Plan on using it in Soups, meats but not Pasta as I heard Pasta is hard to digest with the sleeve.

How far post-op are you? I would hold off first acidic foods like tomatoes for the first 6 months.

Hello,

Since the sleeve I can no longer eat Pasta, my sleeve does not like it. As for the Pasta Sauce I would just be careful because of the acidity. I know for me I get reflux every now and then depending on what I eat so I say you can test the waters and see how it is for you. It seems to be a hit or miss these days when introducing foods back into your life after surgery. :)

I have no trouble eating tomatoes canned or not...Salsa is one of my favorites...I don't bother making spaghetti anymore because what's the point..But I do like tomatoes in Soup and stews like you said....

I drink orange juice at night to take down my Iron pill...I can now eat and orange without any reflux... That has all changed to me after the surgery...I am 10 months out and don't take Nexium anymore!

The nightshade family causes inflammation in the stomach, is most often acidic and like tomatoes are extremely high on carbs. I avoid all nightshades. Pasta too but I eat no grains at all.
