Yes. Don't eat salad. Raw foods, especially roughage like lettuce, is very hard to digest. You need to be on a bland diet until the ulcer heals. Didn't your physician give you a diet to stay on?

I certainly agree. Raw veggies are just hard to digest.

The old remedy was to drink milk first to coat your stomach. Now there are a lot of medications to deal with the acid.

Lettuce can be hard to digest, but it might be the salad dressing that is causing the pain. Italian dressing often triggers my reflux and gives me bad heartburn, but I can handle creamy french.
