Hi all

I had a gastric bypass on the 1st of May and I am in the second week of the pureed food diet, I just thought I would ask a couple of questions to see if all is normal. I cannot really get use to pureeing everything so i have been having broths, cottage cheese, some pureed Soups and jelly (Australian version of Jello)

When eating at times i can really feel the food slowly going down and most times i get a slight stomach ache after eating for up to 30 minutes, I was getting a little worried as I am about to go onto the soft food diet from Friday and was thinking if pureed foods do this what will courser foods do.

How long after surgery did you guys experience this sort of thing and how long does it last before i start to get worried?

Are you weighing and measuring everything you eat and staying within the required volume you're allowed to have? Perhaps you are just eating too much of the purees. Try limiting them to 1/4 cup and see how that goes. Then increase if you're allowed to. Good luck.

It’s pretty normal to feel everything moving down as you eat...at least this early. I am just about 4 mos post op and can still feel liquids and thin foods. I also suggest eating less and measuring if your stomach hurts. Best of luck

I wonder if this is the way it will be from now on? Will you always have this tender sensation as a reminder? Perhaps someone more experienced will have some input.

Me too, the portion sizes are starting to become 2nd Nature. I did worry that a 1/4 cup wasn't enough to keep body and soul together, I usually am lucky if I make it above my 2-3 oz, but I accept it. Its just me, that's what works. I have another Endoscopy on the 12th, hate to say it but I think the gastritis is back if not , it's the ulceration. Low grade pouch pain, gnawing between meals, not even milk helps and I am taking my PPI and my every 6 hr Carafate religiously. I am a little scared that maybe I have stopped with my healing, they were talking of surgery the last time I was in Columbus if things were the same or no better. Not sure what entails, I know what my Medical Geekdom says, but maybe it wouldn't be all THAT bad. Words like cutting, rejoining and re-anastomosis, please Lord let me be wrong and let them be right that I still will be Okay. I've tried So Hard to be a brave little camper, tonight I'm feeling a little scared. Don't even have a Clinic Appointment until August unless this turns out Bad. My Gut instinct? Precious Pouch doesn't drain all that well, can you have something like. "Gastoparesis" in just a little pouch? IDK at this point., what is coming next? See currently I feel nothing moving down, like it hits the pouch and just sits there, used to be I would upchuck within 15 minutes, now I have even did it a couple hours later, just sat nauseous until then. Hard for me to eat anything less when you're stuck on puree, Soup, broth and Protein Shakes. Oh I do sandwich all my Vitamins and minerals and meds in, mostly they stay down. So maybe I'm not too deficient, IDK, I just DK.

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.

      This is great, but having difficulty changing where it says under my moniker & next to my profile picture, "Pre Op" to ---> "Post Op".  I'm new, but had my Gastric Bypass procedure 06 February 2018. Halp! lol  Also, how do I post Before & current "After/ Work In Progress" photos?  Do I post it/ them in this status box? Any assistance appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Toodles!

      Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

        I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
