At least for now it is.
Surgeon graduated me to blended foods last Wednesday, and I was following all instructions…..what to eat, what not, how much, etc….and all was well.
Sunday I became nauseous and gaseous (belching) by eating a cauliflower mac and cheese recipe from the bariatric boards. So I had to toss that out.
No cauliflower for now. Bummer.
After reviewing my notebook I saw that I should be trying meats, like tuna, and blending them. So today I made 2oz of albacore tuna in a packet and added 2 TBSP of Lite Mayo. No sugars in this meal, and only 2 carbs.
Within 10 minutes of eating I was belching. Within 20 I was walking through the house trying to help minimize the belching and provide relief. Within 30 minutes I felt like I had a knife in my chest and was crying and struggling to breathe calmly. By 45 minutes I had vomited. Withing 30 minutes of that I vomited saliva twice.
Look, I have no problem having what is known as “dumping syndrome” had I eaten something not allowed, but I ate allowed items and quantities. Oh well.
So today I got in only 30 g protein and 30 oz of water. Supposed to have at least 60 of each. Plus, there is no way I’m attempting my vitamins or prescriptions tonight.
Two weeks ago I was not even in my hospital room yet, so I guess I can’t complain too much.
