Hi everyone. I am two weeks postop and just started my soft foods today. Buffalo chicken dip sounded great, so I made some but not as spicy as normal. After I eat it, I was looking up about eating spicy foods after surgery and it sounds like I should not have done what I did. Do you think this will cause a problem? I’m kind of nervous that I may have damaged my stomach or something. I’m not having any pain. Thank you!

I never heard anything saying spicy food was bad. I don’t like a ton of spice but I had mild spice early out (not two weeks out, I was on real food) in like taco salad or Mexican cauliflower rice bowl and I was fine. What exactly did you read and where?

My paperwork from the Cleveland clinic says to avoid spicy foods but I didn’t see it till after.

I misinterpreted something in my paperwork and I was panicked as well. I just called my clinic and the NP assured me if I didn’t have any pain that I was fine. Maybe just give them a ring for peace of mind.

I have been eating spicy foods since three days out (Tom Yum Soup broth and Hot and Sour soup broth). I can't stand bland food. No one told me not to eat spicy food.

The reason they tell you to avoid spicy food is because it can be an irritant to the stomach lining especially right after surgery. Spicy food can also irritate gallbladder issues and cause heartburn in some people.

If you’re not in any pain and it sat well then you should be fine. If it keeps bothering you mentally you can always call your bariatric team and talk to them for reassurance.
