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.
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.
