Okay so I have been told meat holds a lot of Protein and thats cool.......... if it stayed down my surgery was 03/12/21 and everything went great Im doing great but when it comes to eating meat its a NO for me only meat that tends to do alright is turkey sandwich meat and ribeye steak cooked right! Fruits and veggies does great especially when its soft but why do I spit up after I eat? I'm getting tired of it, I gotta keep spit bottles with me or plastic cups in my purse[emoji17] its disgusting [emoji1785][emoji2961] do anyone have this issue or is this normal or what I'm doing wrong?

When was your surgery? Many of us have trouble with dense or dry meat, especially early on. Have you tried ground beef, chicken, or turkey yet? Steak has always worked for me as has any ground meat. I’m nearly 2 years post op and still can’t eat much pork, it’s too dense for me. Experiment, and if something doesn’t work now try it again in a few months. Take small bites, chew well, and eat slowly!

Have you tried fish? That's something that a lot of people have said works well for them. Even if you didn't like fish before surgery, you might like it now. Also try chicken thighs cooked in a stew or sauce so they're not dry, or something like chili or meatballs made with ground turkey.

Keep eating the meats that work for you.

Make sure other meats are not dry and/or are in sauce. I ate a lot of chicken breast early on and had no trouble. But I was running in through the food processor first to make sure it was in small pieces and I chewed it forever. I no longer use the food processor and it sometimes now gives me trouble.

My biggest issue is eating too fast. That will lead to tons of saliva (like what happens before vomiting) and foamies. It happens less now that I am better at watching myself and recognizing the signs earlier. But I had numerous unpleasant episodes in my 3rd and 4th month after surgery.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
