Today was exciting for me. I found myself at a luncheon and I actually found food that I could eat. I had a small quantity of tuna salad and then tried out 3 cubes of melon and a few leaves of different lettuces. I finished at the same time as my friend who had a mo "normal" quantity of food. I was really excited to be able to eat th lettuces. This is the first time that I have eaten raw vegetables since March. That was when the surgeon told me to avoid them to avoid issues with my stomach obstruction.
I was taken off of food restrictions on Wednesday but I have been very hesitant to try new foods. When my stomach was banded ( fixed not adjustable) food would sometimes cause violent vomiting. I know I am less prone to that now but it is something I want to completely avoid. I am also concerned about getting enough protein while adding more veggies. I'm going to take it very, very slowly.i'm definitely looking forward to the nutritional support meeting I plan to go to next Friday.
