Going to Red Lobster at 4 weeks post op



Recommended Posts

Is it a good idea to go to red lobster and get their maple chicken and potatoes at 4 weeks post op? I know I’m not going to be able to eat much, I had a slice of low fat turkey earlier and it made me feel bloated.I think it’s because I eat to fast.

I'd get the snow crab legs. Crab is soft, delicious, not too much volume. High quality protien.

I agree - ask your dietitian. I wouldn't have been able to eat that, but that might just be me. I didn't eat potatoes until I was probably a year out - also, some people have trouble with chicken the first few weeks or months. I remember eating shrimp cocktail early out, although I can't remember exactly when that was. I could eat like four of them.

Snow crab legs also naturally take forever to eat so win win.

omg this is the first quote I read since my surgery and I was happy to you are ready for lobster! I am not craving anything but I would like to be able to eat something like that one day and not feel so guilty. let us know if it sat well and I would probably not combine it with butter i know sometimes they add butter to seafood. that oil and fat might not go well. dont know. everyone tolerates different thou. I have not had crab legs since I went to vegas all you can eat buffet i think once I am cleared I will do just that lobster diner and crab legs!

I've did something similar, sadly it was part of my family lifestyles I have no control. I notice that after surgery buttery sauces like the ones they used at Red Lobster didn't agree with me, everytime I ate shrimps or steaks in delicious garlic butter goodness I have dumping symptoms. I had sweet potatoes too at some point and hit a weightloss stall for days. Dr scolded me hehehe.

Did you have the sleeve or bypass?

I didn’t think the dumping was really a thing with the sleeve but haven’t had anything really fattening or greasy yet. Guess I have that to look forward to.

I have dumped twice...both times from eating eggs. It wasn't pleasant, but I can now eat them and buttery sauces with no issues.
