Well I've cheated a bit since my surgery on 1/3.
I have had Thai (mild though), Indian, Sushi, salads,...and for the most part I've done very well. My problem is when I get hungry and don't have tons of time to eat, I do the scarf-it-down thing-BAD! Chewing more thoroughly and slower might help. I have found that peanut butter (creamy) is o.k. but I'm going to forever stay away from whole nuts (don't seem to be digesting them).
The whole diet is still a mystery to me.
I was told by the gal who discharged be from the hospital and it was even on the discharge papers that I had NO restrictions w/foods. When I went to my 2 week follow-up to get the staples out, my surgeon then tells me I should still be eating low-residue-this would be my last week of it today. Well-that obviously screwed everything up. I pretty much have been eating things that I can tolerate-which is mostly everything it seems. I just have to work on eating healthy again-it's been a long time (being on and off the Low-Residue "Wonderbread Diet").
Good news-today I worked out for the 1st time!!!! No heavy lifting though still. Just did Cardio.
Are you still having pain @ your site??? Mine pretty much comes and goes still. Tender to the touch right now even (dull feeling though). Also, constipation is still an issue-Colace 2x daily and every other day good ol' Phillips Milk of Magnesia (UCK).
Glad all has gone well!
