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.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
