OSU forbids Bari-patients from pickles for life, maybe I'll ask them why at my appointment this Tuesday. Kimchi, sauerkraut, as far as I know are okay.

What's wrong with fresh fruit and veg - I'm guessing that your program feels that it's too early for them, rather than not at all forever? Likewise, check with your surgical team on such things, as programs vary all over the map. Pickled stuff isn't my cup of tea, but I wouldn't go overboard on them as pickled veg seems to carry some cancer risk (doesn't everything?) but specific to gastric cancer.

i think you may need wait. It looks like are just at 4weeks. My plan is fruits and stuff like that at 8 weeks, but every plan is different. Check wth your doctor. My 2 month consult was just last week and he told me that only now is my stomach no longer swollen.. Baby your stomach so you dont split or pop your staples.

If pickled things lead to gastric cancer, I'm a dead woman.

Also, I ate 2 pickle chips and survived and was HAPPY!!!

I'm not typically a rule breaker, but I AM a pickle junkie.

Wow, I was never warned about pickles from my team. Hmmm.. I have been drinking pickle pops since I got home. It's suppose to be a popsicle, but I like to just fridge them and pour into a cup for sipping. I get so tired of sweet and this has been great for satisfying my sour impulses. Also in week 3 I have blended up sour kraut to the consistency of applesauce and warmed that up. It's great. I've had no bad reaction to this so far.

I used to like pickled onions and cauliflower, my grandma made on with different garden vegetables in it, the base was sweet like bread and butter pickles, suppose you could fill them but I don't think they would be as good.

Kimchi?

Sauerkraut?

Gardinieri?

Peppers?

This is not OK!

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
