So what’s the word on bananas? I don’t see it anywhere on my food lists, but was wondering if a mashed banana would be ok on puréed

Anybody have pain that comes and goes in small incremental cycles on right side? I have my biggest incision under but its like a dull pain sometimes...

That was where the worst of my pain was. I also had a huge dent in my tummy. I’m 3 weeks out and I still get pain there.

Yes ! I have a dent too! My mom who had an abdominal surgery way different than gastric bypass says she also had pain there for a while.. something about the fact that they mess around in that area it stays sensitive

I was told no whole fruits for 3 months! Only cooked or canned fruits even if blended.

@Jbyerly101 I was told that when you get to puréed stage only bananas would be ok everything else would be rough on you

        Have a great Wednesday too! Sorry you're hungry all the time, I'm pretty much the same..and I'm sick of eating the same food all the time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
