Every time I eat my tummy hurts a lot, to the point that I'm kinda developing some phobia to food. I've been trying to reach my supports and I haven't been successful. Is this normal? What can I do to alleviate this? I'm in my full liquid diet following all the rules and I don't know what is going on.

Maybe slow down and take smaller bites/sips? It could be the temperature that your stomach is objecting to or, maybe it's just not ready for full liquids.

What are you eating at this stage? You might need to go back to the previous stage and give your stomach some extra time to heal.

I agree with Blondiee...how does your tummy react when you have a clear liquid? ? Going back a stage may help and slowing down if you were drinking too quick. If you try those things and they don't help, then I would put a call into the doctor and see what they suggest...better to be safe!!

Temperature really affected my tummy. So maybe change up to something warm or room temperature. Slow down and sip really slowly!

Thanks so much for your support. My tummy hurt even with clear Water. I was finally able to talk to my surgeon today and he asked me if I was taking my pain medication regularly. I said "no because I'm not in pain when I don't eat or drink". He said I think this is the problem. Your stomach is still swollen and when it moves, it hurts" he advised me to take my pain medication regularly for the next 2 weeks and gave an appointment for Wednesday in case this wouldn't solve the problem. I took me pain medication and I'm back to normal. No pain!!!! Thank so much for your support guys. I really appreciate it and I don't feel alone in this journey.

Try some sugar free Popsicles if you haven't already. When it hurt and felt like "work" to sip, those helped. It does get better though. I kind if felt that food aversion for a day or two. Not fun.

I'm 15 days post-op and that's about how I felt for the first week and a half, it took to about day 10 till I didn't feel that way.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
