Meat tolerance post-op



Recommended Posts

Hey sleevers! I had my VSG done on 5-10-18. I’m getting my Protein in thanks to two Isopure shakes a day, but I’d like to start moving away from shakes (per my doctor’s recommendations). But I cannot tolerate meat! I can get down some thinly sliced cooked chicken, and a little tuna salad, but that’s it. No cold cuts, no read meat no turkey.
Has anyone else had a problem with meat after surgery? It does not stay down. I just vomit it right back up. To be honest, I still have a hard time with vomiting with a lot of foods, but if meat goes in, I’m a sick mess for the rest of the day.
Is this a forever thing? And as a side note, have any of you had regurgitating problems this far out from surgery?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I had issues at 6 to 7 weeks with certain meats like chicken but I blended them into my Soups (beef and chicken). I am going into 8 weeks and I can now eat tiny amounts of chicken and most meats. I enjoy cooked shrimp. I can only eat about 6 tiny pieces of chicken and the same for shrimp but that is more than sufficient. Each person is different in what they can tolerate.

I also enjoy soft cooked meatballs. I can usually only eat 2 small ones, 3 if I am really hungry. Those go down the easiest. Try meatballs cooked slow and soft and chew off tiny bits

Thank you for the advice! I really appreciate it! I’ve always had a very sensitive sleeve and it’s good to know someone else has some of the same issues. I’m going to try some meatballs next week.

I’ve talked to him numerous times. I’ve been throwing up off and on since three weeks out. At one point I couldn’t keep liquids down and spent a lovely 24 hours back in the hospital. I’ve had every test under the sun and nothing is wrong with my sleeve. He said some people are just very sensitive. It could also be because I’m on Humira, so I’m obviously going to heal much more slowly than the regular person. I know these things, but I still like to check in with others when it comes to certain topics.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
