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.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.

      5 days post-op revision from VSG to MGB. Back home, feeling great. No more gas pain. Only minor discomfort in the abdominals, rather like after having done a bunch of sit-ups. Definitely don't feel like eating anything. Don't even have the boredom hunger like I had before. Fluids are going down ok though so that's good. Going back to work tomorrow. Wish me luck.

      I'm considering the gastric sleeve; however I have crohn's disease. I'm wondering if anyone with crohn's has had the surgery and can share their thoughts with me.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Hi, I’m scheduled for surgery on June, 24. I’m so excited, but nervous at the same time.
