Probably where they retracted liver out of the way. Now you know your Dr Marc, I know my Dr Bradley, you got the Grade A #1 type surgery, neither of them would have stood for less than perfection. I really believe its just settling of your innards into a place of recovery and recuperation. Gonna take a while, imagine how mine are going to complain after being left alone for,so many years!😝👣😝Step by step little one, you are doing fine.

I was told that the site where the doc works aka the big incision will have internal stitches that can cause some pain when they start to dissolve. Some people describe it as a dull ache others a spasm. Sounds like that might be what you're doing

The scrambled egg gave me a stomach ache at first. The deviled (I put less than 1 teaspoon low fat mayo, yellow mustard and lawry’s salt) did not bother me at all. I thought maybe the mayo helped. Next time I tried roasted chicken (dark meat). I was scared so I added the same ingredients to it before purée. I did well with that as well. I tried a scrambled with one wedge of laughing cow cheese. That went well. Then lastly I tried the ricotta cheese bake recipe from the blog the world according to egg face. That went well too. That’s all I tried so far. Also used the WatchMeEat app and a tiny spoon so I didn’t eat too fast

I had very good luck with purée stage. I did devilled egg, chicken salad with low fat mayo or Greek yogurt, scrambled eggs with a bit of ricotta cheese mixed in, kept them nice and smooth. Soda crackers and Melba toast also no problem. But getting a bit cocky I was cutting up a costco rotisserie chicken for hubby and was taking small bits and chewing well when all of a sudden It got stuck! It was very uncomfortable for about 15 minutes and kept wanting to come up but it finally passed 😩
