4 wks post op and still cant eat



Recommended Posts

I am about 4 weeks post op fro Gastric Bypsss. I still can not hold down chicken, turkey, eggs, cauliflower rice, and some cheeses like a mozerrella in extra virgin olive oil. I am throwing up like every single day within 3-4 bites of my small meal. Thank God I am able to hold down the portein shakes and most cheeses otherwise I would be sunk.

Anyone else experience this? Was there Anything that made it easier to hold food down? Any tips or tricks? All advice would be greatly appreciated!

a lot of people have trouble with poultry (too dry) and eggs. I don't think I was eating cauliflower then. I did eat some feta the first month, but not packed in oil. Not sure if in your case it's the fat in the oil or not...

you may just have to back off some of this stuff and eat soft foods for awhile longer. Your stomach may not be ready. Although some people have trouble with eggs and poultry for the first few months, so it could be awhile before you can tolerate those.

Refried Beans with a bit of cheese on top was my FAVORITE at that time. Everything else food-wise was pretty hit or miss. I could eat some fruit, very few veggies, sometimes eggs or chicken, sometimes not. I also ate a lot of seared scallops then. They never revisited me. Hummus usually did alright, but I literally ate it with a spoon. Proteins drinks were still needed to get me to my Protein goals.

Please discuss with your surgeon if you continue to vomit frequently. 💕

Yes, from the many posts on here about transitioning to this stage a lot of the foods you mentioned were a challenge for people and they had to wait a little longer to allow their new tummies to be ready.
