I had bypass surgery July 19th and I have not been able to eat solid foods. My surgeon suggested I should be eating soft fish and even chicken by now. But I have tried several times and no matter how slow I eat I get the foamies and get a sick feeling. He has now recommended that I do another endoscopy said maybe by throat is too small. Idk what to think....how much and what are you guys eating 5 weeks out??

Wow! I was still on mostly purée. chicken can still be hard. I was allowed tiny bits of soft flaky fish. Like see bass or crab..... my dr was like liquids for a month: puréed for month 2: soft food month 3. Then tiny tiny bits for month 4. Can take 6 months for tummy to heal completely.

I think that maybe the average patient would be able to tollarate more. But my body is not ready for regular food ...not at all

Ah Lillybilly I haven't had it yet but soon . A week from tomorrow on September 5th I will have a RNY Bypass at 7 Am at Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus Ohio . After over 3 years of trying it finally is going to happen, I am so very happy about it. No fears, no sorrows, no tears, I face with peace in my heart. It truly,is the right thing, it is the culmination of much struggle to reach this point. But please be happy for me, my friend.

At 5 weeks I was on soft solids, so no chicken yet unless it was pureed. It's possible you've got a esophageal stricture and having that checked isn't a bad idea.

If your surgeon has recommended you get another endoscopy then I think that’s what you should do and is a great thing. It’s important that your MDs have the best data to diagnose your issue(s) quickly and accurately. Good luck!

I'm 14 years out from gastric bypass surgery (RNY) and still get nauseated when I eat meat and many other things that I won't bore you with. I still have a Protein Drink every single day to compensate for the loss of Protein from meat products. A young woman stopped by my house the other day asking for advice. She was six months out from surgery and still experiencing nausea with most foods, especially meat.

Why would your doctor think your throat had suddenly gotten too small when you have been eating all your life prior to surgery without this issue? I don't think so.

My son had this surgery and he doesn't have any problems at all. Yet I have a lot of nausea, reactive hypoglycemia, trouble with low Iron and a couple of other things. Each of us is different. Most doctors don't seem to know that!!

Give it time. Take it slow. Very slow.

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
