Worst post-op food experiences?



Recommended Posts

This came to mind after I had a terrible experience with tuna at work today. It was the Starkist pouches. I’ve had one before but this pouch was a bit dryer and it did not settle well at all. My supervisor had to give me some time to recoup.

I also had an absolutely awful experience with salmon. Never again will I go near what was one of my favorite foods.

White meat chicken is a no go too.

So far my worst post op food experience has been corn on the cob.

I love corn on the cob and have tried it twice...and both times have gotten the slimes and been uncomfortable...took 30 minutes to get it moving both times.

First time, it was grilled on the cob. Second time, it was broken up cobs in a crab boil. Both times, it was delicious....but caused me problems.

Not much else bothers me. In the beginning dry meats were tricky and needed broth, and I cut my steak up pretty small.

I've eaten baked potato with the skin, pop corn, celery, raw fruits and veggies of all types at this point....with no problems. None of the typical foods that cause concern bother me.

Nothing gives me problems....except corn on the cob:44_frowning2:

I'll try again next summer.

Have you tried adding a condiment? It may help to make it not so dry.

I had tuna today. I'm on soft food and tinned tuna with mayo was on my approved foods list. 2 teaspoons and it felt stuck in my chest and I felt sick for nearly an hour later.

I had a turkey burger yesterday... I've never been in so much pain! I definitely think it was too dry.
