I love them.

And when they are around, I eat them with no issue.

I don't remember the first time I had it after surgery though...maybe 3-4 months? And not by choice or avoidance or anything, just happened to be served a pickle slice and I ate it.

I like pickles. I just don't eat them much. I don't think I had tried eating pickles until I was 6 or 7 months out... I had no issues with them.

I eat them regularly, and love them.

I have recently developed a love of pickles. I find them very filling for something so low in calories. You have to check the ingredients, though -- some pickles are loaded with sugar. I go for Kosher dills because they don't have sugar, but I found out that sugar-free (artificially sweetened) bread and butter pickles exist and I can't wait to try them.

For some reason, I've been craving spicy food since my surgery (which is weird because I didn't really like spicy food before surgery), and I like to put Sriracha or hot sauce on my pickles.

Ate my 1st one about 6-7 months post op and had no issues. I wasn't really a fan prior to surgery. Now I love them and eat them at least once a week. I can only eat one spear and then I am full.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
