Day 5 Post Op and all is well. Getting pretty bored with the full liquid diet and wondering what the thoughts were on spicing things up a bit. Seems like Cream of chicken would convert easily to Cream of Chicken TACO. Just wondering has anyones surgeon mentioned how spice might not be good for the staple line?

Best

I'm sure it would be fine, but start with just a little. I became super sensitive to spicy and sweet things after surgery

GO SLOW OR YOU WILL BE PUNISHED BIG TIME! As a male and someone who has tested the envelope his whole life i tried to push and mix stuff up.

I will just tell you what i did and hopefully it will give you some guidance I purreed some rice into my broth about 4 days out and slammed it. Of course it was rice with seasoning and the broth was loaded. It hit hard and within minutes came flying back up. Was not a fun experience. So take it slow

As a trained chef i would go about 10 of the spice you used to use and move up from there, but heck ya mix er up and enjoy the journey

Thanks. Good point and I guess what you cant cure you must endure. While doing my Creme of Tomato this am I did dab a bit of Tabasco (Chipotle flavor) directly on the tongue. It seemed to be a bit of a lift and made the bland Soup a bit more palatable. I read a few articles how some peppers may irritate the new pouch and inhibit healing a bit so I guess Ill nix the plans for the creme of creole chicken recipe I was developing for tonight! Thanks for the input.
