Rosie, that sounds more positive, with some good food staying down, and as you say, it is trial and error for us all working out why sometimes things don’t agree. I found the same food if re-heated the following day was often not ok, and Doodah wisely pointed out this was because I was using the microwave, which dries food out, so I needed to always add more liquid.

Heidi, it is not necessarily all that bad trying to get the food in, but obviously it is not as easy as dealing with our normal pre-op stomach situation, there are differences in what we can and can’t tolerate, and we can only get small quantities of food in, which over time can increase. Don’t be scared, if you are sure you want surgery, then you will make it work for you, and most people who are some time down the line can eat food they like, and are happy with their weight loss, which is why it can be very reasurring to meet people at a support group and see how well they are. Initially, it is like learning to eat again, and does require more effort and thought than pre-op, and it is important to know that will be the case. xx
