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.

I will eat pickles, even if their pickled goodness will kill me, because the are LIFE!!!!! But no, seriously, I've never heard of pickled things being carcinogenic.

Kimchi?

Pickles?

Sauerkraut?

Gardinieri?

Peppers?

This is not OK!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      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.
