I had sleeve on 7/3/19. It’s 9/17/19. I feel like there is still a lot I can’t eat. oatmeal and yogurt feel the best. You know that feeling when it kind of hurts when you eat something. For example tonight I made veggie crumble with taco seasoning (30% less sodium), cut tomatoes, cut avocado, and put mixture into lettuce. I have a slight feeling that I need to throw up. I only ate one leaf with the mixture. I get this feeling with a lot of foods. Can’t do any meats. (I was vegetarian for years). Even tofu gives me that grinding, painful feeling. I had hernia repair so that’s not it. It’s more of pain in stomach. Maybe too much food, maybe didn’t chew enough. Uggh. This is the only issue I have. I’ve been walking everyday. I’m down almost 60 lbs. Any thoughts???

I get the same feeling, even tonight with rice and shrimp. After only a few shrimp and couple bites of rice I feel somewhat of a pain in my chest and nausea. I sat the food down and was able to finish about 15 minutes later without that same feeling. meat is hard on my stomach and I'm almost 7 months out.

Hopefully with time it will get better!

I'm 2 months out and can still only eat 3 bites of anything. Any more and i'm vomiting. Also, chicken almost always makes me sick as do raw veggies. I do well with omelettes.

lettuce and tomatoes can be hard at first - raw vegetables in general are hard (I think they're just difficult to digest, but eventually your new stomach will be able to handle it). Tomatoes have a lot of acid, which can also be irritating when you're early post-op (in fact, I still have trouble with acidic foods sometimes, at four years out). You may just have to stay on blander, easier-to-digest foods for awhile. There are still times when I have to do this because my stomach seems easily irritated some days - but early out it was *a lot* of days...

Just an FYI I have read a lot that rice is a known trigger for pain and vomiting as is bread :)

Based on my experience, you aren't that far out and it doesn't surprise me you still have sensitivities to certain foods. The first time I had an adverse reaction to a food (severe pain, foamies, and ultimately vomiting) was from eating a hard boiled egg. It really made me take my time progressing through the allowed food stages; I took things a lot slower than my program outlined. Because I was hesitant I steered clear of raw veggies with the exception of avocado. I could seriously eat avocados at every meal and thank God they agreed with me! Lettuce is notoriously hard to digest, so maybe that and the other veggies just pushed things over the top.

Either way, you are doing fabulous and the sensitivities do tend to go away (that's a good and a bad thing for me!)

My nutritionist says rice expands in your stomach after eating it and frequently causes discomfort. She advises steering clear of it.

i had a similar thing several months after surgery. I'd had a hernia repair during my surgery as well and it came back. Surgeon said it can happen. I had to have some sort of swallow test to diagnose the problem.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
