Re: Months after surgery and still cannot eat
Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time. I've read that it can take several months, and sometimes a year, to get back to fairly normal. Some people can never go back to their old diets. In my case, prior to GB problems, and subsequent removal of it, I ate anything I wanted, including lots of fat. I'm not able to do that right now. I'm only about 2 weeks post-op. I hope to get back to it tho. For now, I'm eating lowfat, and I'm feeling MUCH better. I agree with the previous poster - stick to lowfat to no-fat, and then see how you do. I did something really stupid about 3 days after my GB removal. I ate a slice of pepperoni pizza, and had a mini-attack from it. DUMB DUMB DUMB. I'm basically eating "safe foods" right now - foods that I know won't affect me in a negative way.
Chicken has lots of protein in it, so you could eat baked or broiled chicken. I'm not sure about things like salad. I think raw veggies are kinda hard to digest, so I'm not sure if they're good for post-GB surgery. I'm no expert on this stuff, as I'm still learning. But I definitely look at the fat in things before I try them. I've started eating one serving of Activia yogurt each day, and I do feel better since starting that, so I'll probably stick with it.
