How many years after surgery could you eat a plate of spaghetti without feeling nauseous?



Recommended Posts

I also want to ask If I was ever going to be able to eat sushi again. Or Chinese food. I ask because I'm one-month post-op and there are veggies I don't even tolerate yet.

I can eat sushi no problem and Chinese food most of them - Not your battered pork but steak and noodles and even a small egg roll =- As for spaghetti the word plate is not possible but i eat a tiny bowl with sauce and a meat ball for my weekly carb intake -

It took me to about 4 months but everyone is different

Thanks but I was really asking bypass patients.

Wow. The experience is very similar.

I waited until I was in MM to test the waters with Pasta. And because I've worked to develop new food choices, I actually prefer my zoodles and Zeroodles to eating real pasta. No carb hangover. No heaviness or nausea.

I don't eat Chinese take out cuz of too much hidden sugar and RH. I make it at home and eat it at least 2x a week usually.

I don't eat rice any more, but I've had a bite of Mexican rice with charro Beans without issues.

I'm a year post-op sleeve and still can't eat Pasta.

Are these your goals? To eat what you've always eaten?

There is no such thing as a plate of anything anymore. Or 24 bites of sushi. And you will hopefully discover that the food doesn't give you the same as it used to.

I eat somewhat "normal" foods (mind carbs and mind fat), but I don't eat them to excess, and often it doesn't taste good. Like soda pop. Was very proud of the fact that I COULD drink it, but now I'm just like - it really doesn't taste that good so I drink Water and home made iced tea instead.

I ate sushi about 2 months post op, and it was fine. Not like ohmygod this is good. I was more just like, it's food, I could have eaten my baked fish instead.

You have to make some choices down the line. Otherwise the surgery will be useless. Once in a blue moon you can eat Pasta, but that's weeks, months or years away, same with sushi. Get your mind of the food. It's just your mind playing tricks.

If you're still thinking about Chinese food, pasta's, etc., it makes me wonder if you were ready to have this done. Those foods should never be touched again, and if so, it is WAY too soon for them. I don't really touch sushi due to the rice, pasta's are a huge bowl of carbs. I can mostly agree with the comment above, once in every blue moon will be okay, but not as often as you're craving.

I wish you the best :) Refocus and if you need to seek counseling to help keep you focused (I did), I'd really suggest that.

I am almost two months post op and can’t eat any raw veggies yet. It just takes time to be completely healed.

I haven’t really thought about Pasta as I didn’t really eat it much before surgery. There are lots of good pasta replacement options out there though. I have made fried rice using riced cauliflower and it was good. That was during my pre bypass stage though.

you will find a new normal way if eating and feel so much better for it. Hang in there!

I'm over four years out. I eat sushi, but I can only manage half a roll.

Chinese food - yes. I don't eat the rice, though. I order something with non-fried meat (and veggies) and eat a cup or so of that.

Pasta - I avoid that. I don't feel well after eating a carb-heavy meal, so I haven't messed around with pasta dishes.

I was in a noodle bar at a casino at 1;00 am the other day/night and ordered the spicy beef noodle bowl (which has always been my go to there).

So it came out, I looked at it and said to myself: "F---me, I used to eat all that?" It was a huge bowl of udon noodles covered in a spicy broth with beef brisket and peppers. So I ate the beef, and all the broth, about 20 noodles and it was glorious. When I was done it was just a giant bowl of noodles, and the waitress said (in broken English) "you no like"?

I said " I loved it", which I did, and i was stuffed.

So the answer to your question about when you can eat a bowl of spaghetti again, may be: You might never want to.

Apparently I am. But I'm also worried I'll never stop being so nauseous around food in general. Especially the foods I once liked. But thanks for your support.

Your desire for this food is very apparent, you are asking an emotional question - not a nutritional one. Right now your mind needs to realize that it will never be the same again, unless you want to ruin the surgery.

Your body needs nutrition, so work within the guidelines to simulate Asian food, use the spices and vegetables and some chicken.

Pasta - no, a couple bites here and there, but it isn't that appealing and feels too heavy. You can still have the sauce and meatballs. I suspect you are missing chewing this texture too. All of us had to face the food funeral.

You are among friends here, so don't be rude to sleevers, they are trying to help.

I was never at risk of ruining my surgery because I'm not having cravings. And I was never rude to anyone.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
