      Oh, these food posts are soooo very encouraging. I can hardly wait to eat normal food again. Keep up the posts, I am sure I am not the only one enjoying reading them. Hopefully it won't be too long before I can eat and actually enjoy it afterwards! Joann

            I feel comfortable saying that this happens to everyone. The farther out you get from surgery the easier it is to eat (your tummy is healing). That's why those of us long-term post-ops tell newbies to keep trying different foods. One day something may not agree with you and the next day it's fine. Before you know it's you'll be eating foods without really having to think about it.

            Patience is the key word with food.

              Yeah, me too. I thought I'd lost cottage cheese forever and that was one of my favorite foods. Now I eat it all the time.

                Oh man cottage cheese

                I was lactose intolerant before, now still am but I can eat cottage cheese and it doesn't bother me YIPPPPEEEEE!!!!!!!!!. I just hope I can eat a bowl of cereal(Total cereal is my favorite) with skim milk in the future. I keep trying and it is getting better. I have tried all the no lactose milks, soy, etc... yuck!!!!!!

                  Have you tried Lactaid WHOLE milk in the paper carton? I tried it first in a plastic gallon jug and thought it was awful! Then I tried the low fat version, that was better but still yuk. The next thing was a really good one - that's Land -o-Lakes brand lactose free milk. Not different tasting from regular milk, but it's really hard to find. The grocery store brand was the next best thing, but then one day they were out and only had the lactaid brand. SO I tried the whole milk in the cardboard 1/2 gallon carton and it's SO different from the plastic jug taste. Try it. I agree -- SOY milk is gross! Even the chocolate. Blek.

                      Thanks shrinker

                      I started trying all different brands a couple of months out from surgery, lactaid, soy and land o lakes(mmmm it was good!!! anything land o lakes is good). I still cannot stomach the lactaid and I cannot find the land o lakes milk here in TN.. I might ask one or more of my stores to see if they order and see how it does???

                                Your are so right

                                As a newby I experiment with new foods all the time and it is true if it doesn't work one week try again a little later. I couldn't eat salad, milk, or oatmeal. I can now eat oatmeal with a little milk in the morning. My body tells me very fast on what it will put up with and what it won't.
