34 Days Post Op eating trouble (Phase 4 )



Recommended Posts

I'm having some serious trouble knowing what to eat and keeping anything aside from juice (sugar free)
Or flavored water (Crystal Light) Down. Anything else makes my pouch undulate in a weird way and automatically i feel ill.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I .. could try for stage 4?

I can't eat anything really, not even mashed potatoes. My Doctors have only pushed liquids and I'm even having trouble with Protein Shakes.
They seem to just dismiss me when I say something's wrong.

Maybe your pouch just isn’t ready for that stage. Or maybe your pouch doesn’t like the brand of Protein you are giving it.
It’s. Ok to stay in stage 3 for a little bit longer.

your stomach may just not be ready to move on. If this evolves into vomiting everything up, though, let your clinic know. That could be indicative of a stricture, which they'll need to fix. You're in the right time frame for it (they usually occur 1-3 months after surgery). But for now, I'd just hold off moving to stage 4 and see if that helps....again, it could just be your stomach isn't quite ready to move on yet.

I cant do crystal light too bitter tasting. The shakes dont sit well for me either. Did your nutritionist not give you a handout for stage 4? The program book they gave me has list of foods and meal examples. I am still in purees. You could try going back a stage until you make an appointment with your dietician to get her advice.

Try Premier Protein it comes in a Mango flavor that is not a shake. It is like a juice.

I have three cases that I will donate if anyone wants it. I used these during my pre-op diet, but can’t tolerate the taste since surgery.
