OK, so I hate to be a downer, particularly to all the newbies, but this weekend hasn't been great. I felt fine on liquids, but I started mushies/purees on Friday, and, wow, are they not settling well. I've tried hummus, refried beans, some Laughing Cow Cheese Light, soft scrambled and blended egg, and blended potato soup. All of them upset my stomach. I feel like I'm constantly bloated, slightly nauseous, gassy, and have just a general yucky/unsettled feeling ALL THE TIME. I also have these little burps, almost like air bubbles coming up constantly; sometimes when I lie down, it feels like soda water going up my throat. Some things have gone right through me, and I've had diarrhea.
I had no issues with my digestive system at all prior to surgery, no heartburn, nothing. Now, I'm constantly aware of the rumbling, the cramping, the gas, etc. I am not loving my sleeve at the moment but trying to remain optimistic.
I'm also concerned about how little I can eat. I manage maybe 300 to 400 calories in a day (including liquids); I'm having a hard time with protein because whey upsets my stomach. I seem to be lactose intolerant now too (never was before). When I had the scrambled egg, I could eat less than half, and I felt so incredibly, uncomfortably full. This morning I met some friends for breakfast and sipped tea while they ate; it was depressing.
Does it get better? Will my digestion eventually settle down? Will I eventually be able to eat like a normal person, because getting full on half an egg is not normal or healthy. What do I do in the meantime? Go back to liquids?
