I'm two weeks post-op, and on Thursday, I have a big work dinner; it's at a conference, it's being hosted by some fancy folks, it's a big deal to go and network and blah blah. Last year was a four-course affair with tons of industry gossip. In other words: awesome. But I checked out the menu online, and I think there is maybe ONE thing I can get, maybe, and it's a Soup appetizer.

Any advice on how to navigate this? I'm honestly thinking of telling them all I'm getting over a stomach bug and need to be cautious with what I eat, that my stomach's still way off. The threat of vomit always scares people into leaving you be, right? But any advice on how you deal with dinners when you can't eat even CLOSE to normal is helpful.

I think the stomach bug idea is your best bet. Hopefully no one will pay any attention to what you're eating anyway and it will be a non-issue.

Hollywood movie magic style!!!!

Move your food around forever cutting, swishing and dipping but never eating, but keep going back to the Soup so you actually get to eat.

Eat the Soup, Order other things but like someone said, just move it around on your plate, if anyone asks, say that surprisingly the soup really filled you up more than you expected or maybe you aren't feeling well. But don't offer that up, only if someone notices. I work with so many people that all have different dietary requirements these days so you might not stick out as much as you think. Best of luck!

Just keep playing with your Soup and food and move it around and nobody will really notice that much. If they do say something, then go with the stomach bug .
