About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

Today is soft foods!  Well... technically I gave it a try last night.  Didn't go so well though.

Last night hubby was pushing to go to a Vietnamese restaurant so we went.  I had 1/4 of a salad roll, 1 bite of a chicken wing, 1 wonton in soup with about 2 spoonfuls of soup.  I was stuffed and pretty uncomfortable actually.  I had my first heartburn since starting this journey.  Had to down a couple of Tums before bed.

Tonight for dinner I had a 3oz filet of sole and 1 broccoli floret.  I'm stuffed.
So weird to eat so little and be full.  Soft foods definitely feel different in my new tummy. It hurts a little swallowing even though I chew to mush.  It will take some time as the swelling continues to go down.  It's the same feeling I had day 1 post op when I was trying to sip water.  It got better so I know this will get better too.
