My job gave us a Panera gift card for job appreciation. I'm at 6 weeks from surgery date not sure about using the gift card. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

I usually get Soup if I eat at Panera. I really liked the turkey chili. Here’s a link to their nutritional information

Look for something that makes good leftovers too. I had to go out for pizza with co-workers and just ordered a side of meatballs. For some reason, the side was 12 meatballs and sauce; it took me 3 days to finish them off between lunches and dinners! I wouldn't get a sandwich or anything since they typically don't hold up well. I think the turkey chili suggestion is a good one. Otherwise, you could always hold onto the gift card until you're eating a wider variety of food.

I was going to suggest the turkey chili as well. It usually comes out right around this time of year.

The turkey chili is so good! ❤️

I would either hold the card for a little while more, or get a variety of Soups and freeze them until you feel ready. I'm close behind you (5 weeks PO) and my tummy would not be up to any Panera food just yet.

Soups is a good idea. Or just a wholE lotta coffees? Lol

..or maybe a nice gift to someone else?

I was going to say treat yourself to something…a mani pedi or a cute new outfit and give the gift card to someone else.

I have not tried to eat out yet but the Soups seems like an easy way to order something without fear of problems. I think a piece of fish like cod or flounder is a pretty good bet too since it is so soft and stays pretty moist after cooking.

      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?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
