Green Smoothie 2 Weeks post op



Recommended Posts

So I tried a green smoothie today - 1/2 a banana 1/2 cup mixed berries a handful of spinach soy milk and Protein Powder - Blended pretty thin.

It tasted great but holy heck it hit my stomach like a ton of bricks. I felt nauseous and my stomach hurt so much after like 3 sips. I felt unwell for about 2 hours after and I was at work for my first day back so I wasn't in a rush to leave.

Was this dumping? Should I try again with less fruit? Was it just something I can't tolerate right now?

That pain though, nope, I never want it again. I have had a great first 2 weeks other than this no pain, fluids in easy - getting in about a cup of strained Soup at meal times and I have been feeling great.

Anyone else not tolerating smoothies at this stage? Any tips?

may just be a tolerance issue. I had a lot of those the first few weeks after surgery. I'd have something one week and get nauseated from it, and a week or two later I'd be just fine with it. Raw fruits and vegetables can be a bit tough on healing stomachs - so just go easy on it for a few days.

fruit has sugar and carbs so it may affect your belly
