Over ate for the first time after surgery



Recommended Posts

Wow, that was horrible. About to go to phase 4 and eat solid foods. Was eating some pureed Beans and some mashed up potato salad. took about 2 bites too many. All the sudden it got hard to breathe....and 15 minutes later I threw it all up. Not a pleasant experience lol. But it was a good reminder to follow the rules. Stretching my stomach is a CONSTANT fear of mine. I know to stick to the plan, but I'm always afraid I will fail.

And I bet you won't do it again!

My first and only time I did was so bad, the memory keeps me from doing it again. It took me about 3 hours to get over it.

Now I eat my food and leave 2-3 minutes between bites, so I can check if I'm full and need another bite.

Oh yeah, that first time you overeat is not pleasant. But it does help to reinforce the eat slowly rule. I still ask myself if I really need the next bite, not that I just want it or am eating out of habit. I tell myself: put the cutlery down & push the plate away.

To make things even more difficult you may find your tummy just can’t tolerate certain foods or that some foods make you feel full more quickly than others. I had a spoonful of mashed potato a few weeks back & it sat like a lump in my tummy for ages.

Good luck on your journey. It can be a roller coaster of experiences but so rewarding.
