Will I ever enjoy eggs again?



Recommended Posts

I'm had bypass April 15th and eggs use to be my favorite go to Protein. I've tried eggs over the stove using different healthy butter alternatives, trying scrambled, fried, and boiled. Everytime I'm in the bathroom within minutes. Frozen Atkins egg meals are a lil easier but barely. I still get nauseated but I don't puke them up like fresh eggs. Anyone else have this issue?

I had bypass on Dec 7th (8 MONTHS AGO) I still dont do well with eggs and stay away. I dont end up in the bathroom from anything I eat. Meaning it effects me differently. For me I feel really uncomfortable stomach pain. Eggs still hurt so I stay away, maybe 1-2 bites like 1 a month, but it sucks. Since its such an easy Protein to eat. well not now for me, lol.

All Proteins i need to chew and take a few minutes in between bites if I dont want any pain.

Good luck!!

Early on I recall eggs being just too hard on my stomach and just stayed away from them. Eventually my stomach started giving me the message to go forth and egg and things worked out well. I'm mostly a scrambles egg / omelet sort of guy. It was a while before I could get past one egg but even now two is pushing it.

As times moves on food tolerances have moved into a more rational range than early post-op.

Good luck,

Tek

lots of people have trouble with eggs after WLS. For many, it's just temporary.

eggs are my go to. Every morning I have 1 scrambled egg and an applesauce cup. Been that way for at least 4 weeks. I don't know how else I would've survived!

I was one of these people! Tried eggs as my first "soft food", had a horrible experience...but I tried them again 3-4 months out and it was fine!

Ugh that sucks. Luckily eggs don't affect me at all, I actually have two scrambled eggs with shredded cheese every single morning since the first day home from surgery.

The only thing that tastes different to me is certain types of spicy stuff, some of my old favorites just taste yucky now.

Have you tried egg salad? After surgery when I was in the soft food phase my wife made me homemade egg salad pretty regularly and it was my favorite out of all the salads I was eating (tuna, chicken, turkey).

If I go extremely slow, I mean a bite every few minutes I can get down 1 egg. I've had Bypass. I know many people with just the sleeve and they were fine, but I wanted some other Bypass peeps to share their egg stories.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
