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.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
