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!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
