Thanks. I do have to be more patient. I am impressed you are 8 years as a survivor. Is tomato pasta sauce still a problem for you?

my husband had diarrhea real bad tom even now he still does on certain foods. he can eat just about everything he wants but what he wants and what he is not suppose to eat is two differant things . He lost a lot of weight after surgery but he went to dr last week and he back up to what he weighed befor surgery. the dr said when he was having the hot spells and for a long time I kept telling him it sounded just like someone who has dieabetes. he will have to eat a couple snack cakes and a can of pop to make it go away. the dr said it was dumping and we were not sure what it was i found out about it on here.

well he still has problem with certain foods just like befor, he is supposed to follow his diet like it was before surgry. he still has acid reflux takes all kinds of medicine for it but still has it. he is not supposed to have choclate or any acid foods but he still does I think chocalte is the worse

my husband had his whole esphagus removed and they streched his stomach to were his esophigus was. he was om a liguid diet for over a month because of his feeding tube, his first food was potatoe soup which now he doesnt want me to make he has had it 1 time since surgery. I would be very careful what I cooked because I was afraid to have to many smells from food because it would make him hungry. but I was starving.

I do not tend to eat curries in the evening but apart from that I eat everything. I do not take any antacids except if I have missed a meal and I get it then.
I learn to know my limits.

I have a rare type of pancreatic cancer and as a result of treatments and other complications, I have needed a primarily pureed diet for the past 3 years. So I got creative and developed a lot of recipes and my gastroenterologist suggeste I share the recipes with others. So I have a blog of delicious and nutritious recipes at:
Hope you can find some useful recipes for you there. Good luck!

I have been on a liquid diet just recently moving to purée foods. This sucks as I have no appetite for this type diet. I'm wondering what others experience has been with eating after surgery. How long until you began eating solid foods, etc. I'm still on a feeding "J" tube to supplement my caloric intake at night. When I swallow it feels like the food. Is falling off a cliff such a weird experience. Same with swallowing water. It feels like the sensation of when you have a cold and you feel the mucous in the back of your throat. I assume that eventually goes away? My surgeon hasn't Ben much help answering these questions my primary has told me to eat whatever I want short of steak pork chops and food with rough edges. I see my gastrologist this coming Monday . Would love for others to share their their experiences with me so I can normalize me sensations.

When I first started to need a pureed diet, it was really discouraging and disheartening. But since then I have developed many ways of making my pureed foods delicious, nutritous and visually appealing.
I hope this helps!
