So I'm 4 weeks out and am cleared for soft things, meant included. So, I thought rotisserie chicken thigh meat was pretty soft. Have tried 3 times now to eat 2 or 3 ounces of it and I have gotten SICK every time. No barfing, but miserable fullness, nausea and pain that lasts for hours! Feels like it isn't digesting at all.

Is that a thing? Is it hard for the tiny pouches to grind up meats?

I have stopped even trying that at this point. I can do ground chicken or sausage-like consistencies, but I don;t even want to LOOK at my fave rotiss. chicken now!

A lot of people have trouble with chicken. If I eat roast chicken it's too fatty and I get the squits. Maybe just stick to ground chicken mince for a while.

So then stop eating it. LOL. Wait a couple weeks, then try again. :) You are one of the peeps who don't do well with chicken right now. Or you can try eating it with a gravy.

Go back to fish. Poached or lightly sauteed.

Go back to tuna from a pouch, maybe chicken from a pouch mixed with low fat mayo or avocado.

Go back to soft scrambled eggs, soft boiled eggs, eggs fried in very little fat over easy.

Cottage cheese, yogurt, ricotta bake, refried Beans with cheese.

Or make stews from ground turkey/ground chicken and cook until very tender.

I also ate canned corned beef hash (nasty but some like it).

I have stopped eating it. Was just wondering if it was a thing. To this point, I've handled everything I've tried, so I was just surprised that I couldn't do it.

Yeah, that is why you only add 1 thing at a time and do it slowly...like every 2-3 days or so. And then, some days things go down easily, other days not. I found hydration levels hugely determined how easily food would slide through my new anatomy. On days when I was dehydrated, I experienced more pain on eating things.

This is my experience when I eat too much. I tolerate just about anything, but overeating, especially dense Protein makes me feel as you described.

I seem to have a particularly restrictive sleeve. At nearly 11 months out 1 oz of dense protein gets me comfortably full. At 4 weeks out 2 oz of protein was 4 meals for me. So eating 2-3 oz at 4 weeks seems to be potentially too much. I'd suggest starting out with 1 oz and eating slowly, so you don't go past your full point.

I am 7 months out, and still cant eat chicken. Any chicken, cooked anyway. No go. But turkey, pork is ok. So my nutritionist told me to wait a couple months and try again. Its just my stomach doesnt like chicken now. That and bread of any kind. No go.

Hang in there first few months is the learning curve of what your stomach can tolerate. It gets better.

Yup, I still have issues with meat. My nutritionist says it's not uncommon. I was sleeved Aug 15th.

Well lookie here! I ate 2.3 oz of lean beef (RARE) tonight. I slowed WAAAY down and chewed the snot out of it. No problems at all!!!!

Maybe I was gobbling that chicken. Learning to take a breath, set the fork down and look at hubby for cues!

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
