Pain from yogurt/pudding??



Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm one week out. Doing good hitting protein/hydration. I fell well and am in good spirits. I'm doing my sips. I'm allowed yogurt/pudding on my liquid diet right now but I seriously get pain from it. Even the smallest amounts liquified in my mouth cause pain almost right after swallowing. I've even tried watering down yogurt with almond milk. I also noticed that with the Premier Protein shakes I have to let the sips almost run down my throat rather than swallowing but not the fairlife, those I can actually swallow because the consistency is different. Really only Water and Gatorade have been going down without much pain. Anyway, I am not sure if I had a hernia repair yet (haven't been able to ask yet), but wondering if that is what is causing it?

If not is this something that improves over time?

Thanks!

Which surgery did you have? I didn't try pudding and yoghurt until the soft food stage. They didn't cause me any pain, but I did find them unpleasantly thick at that point and waited a bit longer to include them in my diet.

I would hold off on those thicker/creamier foods for another week or so, and try again then. For now try full liquids or thin the pudding / yoghurt down with milk perhaps.

I was sleeved on 12/9. There have been a few times that I have tried foods that were on my plan, my body wasn't ready for it yet. My surgeon told me to trust my body. If something made me feel uncomfortable, wait and try it again in a few days.

I sounds like you just aren't quite ready for those yet, even if they are on your plan. You may have more inflammation in your stomach than most, which restricts the thicker (or sometimes even the thinner) things more than others experience. I had yogurt (and purees, etc.) in the hospital without problem, but others on the same plan couldn't handle them. Our general rule was to try new foods one at a time to test for tolerance; if it worked, great, if not, try it again in a week or two.
