I can tolerate mayo and butter in small amounts. The transition to solid foods was pretty seamless for me. I only threw up once when I ate one to many chicken wings.

I can do high fat sauces and dressings. When I replied to one of your earlier threads about not being able to tolerate super fatty meals, I was referring to meals like fish fries (which I used to go to at least once a month pre-surgery). Those usually included 2-3 deep-fried breaded fish filets, tartar sauce, a pile of French fries, cole slaw (made with mayo, of course), and usually a roll with butter. I couldn't eat that anymore - all that fat would make me feel nauseated. I could have maybe a half a fish filet (or maybe a whole one if they were small) - everything else I had with that would have to be a lot lower in fat. Another meal that would be tough for me to eat - a reuben sandwich with a side of fries. I could probably do half a reuben and maybe 4 or 5 fries now.

but as far as something like a high-fat sauce or dressing on something - yes, I can eat that.

I do low fat to no fat, because too much fat in my diet upsets my stomach. I had a different surgery though, but it's the malabsorption imo that causes the issue and gastric bypass also has malabsorption so... I'd just be careful.

I avoid high fat foods when possible, but I have indulged from time to time without any problem now that I'm in maintenance. This includes butter, sauces, fatty meat, etc. Not a problem with any of them in the past year.
