Bypass was 2 1/2 weeks ago. MD skips purée stage and said to start soft food. So far 1/4 c cottage cheese was fine. I had an egg yesterday all was fine. I had a 90% of a scrambled egg over 20 minutes. It’s been over an hour and I have an annoying ached between my shoulder blades. Is this normal to get this delayed discomfort?

I've heard to softly scramble an egg. Was it maybe overcooked? Also, I wonder if scrambling it with a dash of milk would make it lighter going down?

I practically lived on cottage cheese for the first few days I went to purées.
Did the eggs, but I made sure to soft-scramble it and it did go down easier than boiled.
I also ate some ham salad (not the healthiest because it’s processed, but it was low in carbs and already puréed). Never got an ache in the shoulder blades, but I do get some pain and spasms in my diaphragm area when I drink or eat too fast, or try to drink less than 45 minutes after eating.
Maybe that’s the same pain for you, but it’s being sensed differently. Honestly I don’t know for sure.

I pretty much lived on cottage cheese and yogurt for a while. Couldn't eat more than half a scrambled egg for a while or it felt like I ate a rock once it hit my stomach! At this stage more than a couple bites of anything may be too much. Take it slow and if something doesn't sit well now, wait a few days and introduce it again later. It's boring at first but as you heal it does get better!

eggs fall in my stomach like a ton of bricks and hurts so much no matter how soft I scramble them. so I stopped eating them for now. It seems I also swallow a lot of air at times causing incredible pain. I finally got permission from doc to take Gas-x or something similar. It works right away and the pain is gone. Whenever I have a "delayed a bit" after I eat pain, it is usually gas. I can feel and even hear the gurgling of the air moving around my stomach. I try burping naturally on my own but if if that doesn't work fast enough for me, I'll take a Gas-x and that solves the problem. Check with doctor first before taking anything.

Was it just egg whites? Some people have difficulty digesting the yolks because of the fat.

Odd when my children were babies, they pushed yolks because of the food value but warned against whites because of the high allergy values. Old saying is: what goes around comes around again, but this time it got warped in the transition! Got love medical? advice sometimes!

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
