I had my RNY on April 8 and everything has been going well. The only thing I've dumped on was a little bit of a chicken skin (and I think I may have been eating too fast at that dinner, it was our first time hosting a dinner since my surgery and I was excited!). Anyways, in a week or two, my work is having a pizza party, and I was wondering when other people found they could tolerate pizza. I don't want to dump or have to leave work early because I ate something I shouldn't have, but I'd also love to have half a slice if it's not going to bother me too much.

I'm also going to be sending my nutritionist this question, but I thought I'd check with some people's personal experience in this as well. (For the record, I am also absolutely fine bringing my lunch. I haven't had much in the way of cravings and don't feel the need to eat pizza if it won't sit well, it's more about participating in the group activity I think).

Eat it with a knife and fork, and just eat the cheese. You will be full after 2-3 bites anyway! LOL!!!

Only eat the toppings(veggies and protein) and cheese.

cheese and toppings like the others said and If you have not had any bread products yet, don’t try it for the first time outside of your home (But go with your nutritionists recommendations)

I have not had any bread products yet so if I do have some pizza, I'll stick with just the toppings. I've handled cheese, tomatoes, most meats, and veggies just fine so far!

I can eat pizza now (1-2 slices - I'm six years out), but that first year, I scraped the toppings off and only ate those. I just told people I was low-carbing, that's why I didn't eat the crust. No one cared. I was probably out about as far as you are now when I started doing that.

Same as jnfinney I had cauliflower pizza at two months and it was fine but I am not sure about the real crust. Have you had any sort of bread or tortillas yet?

I am a year out from my revision to RNY and can only eat half a slice. I ate a full slice once that sent me down for 2 hours🤢🙁. I do however make pizza bowls and they are delicious !!! ( all the toppings sauce and cheese oven baked)

Homemade pizza on whole wheat and only veggies, no sugar Tomato paste or sauce, with a reduced cheese may be ok since I made some, but the thing is you cant really eat much anyways but at least what you eat will be healthy and the family too!

That’s why I like to make the cauliflower crust one. I cut the crust when I get home from store into slices while it’s partially thawed and then I can make one slice at a time since I don’t cook for a family Hommemade version sounds yummy but I would waste all but one slice.

Almost 9 months out and I can only eat a piece of small cheese pizza at this point. I have a really hard time with eating the crust. I usually eat about 1/2. I tried the cauliflower crust and still had a hard time digesting it for some reason. I didn't try to eat pizza until about my 3-4 months. All I could eat was a tiny bit of cheese and sauce. Good luck.

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