Lettuce, tomato, etc.



Recommended Posts

I know it's way early, but when was everyone here able to start eating lettuce tomatoes and other raw salad veggies after gastric bypass?

Same for me! (around six weeks)

My surgery was 6/13/18 and when I went for a follow-up on 7/26/18 they said I could begin lettuce and Tomato. I'm still very careful with any raw veggies and don't eat them often. They don't always feel great.

I was able to do soft lettuce (baby greens) at one month post-op; most vegetables at 3 months post-op.

I’m 18 months out from surgery and raw veggies are iffy. They fill me up with just a few pieces and feel stuck. I used to eat salads 4-5 days a week but rarely now.

I was told no raw veggies until 3 months out ...that’s when I get to regular foods.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
