Sorry I have been MIA again...was in the hospital for a week being poked and prodded. It started with severe abdominal pain and I have found that eating solid foods sent me back into severe pain. They did a colonoscopy, an Upper GI, and laparoscopic surgery and removed my appendix. Plus I had issues with IV's so I have 5 sites on one arm and 4 on the other. They sent me home, but I am still mostly stuck to a liquid diet and trying one food at a time, plus planning to juice and puree foods and thin with juice or broth/stock.
I had tried to talk to a nutritionist, while in the hospital, about how to go about this diet, but did not get much help other than she agreed with what I thought to do. So I figure I will treat my tummy like we do when we start an infant on foods..one food at a time and a little at a time. I am open to any suggestions you all may have. While in the hospital, applesauce and bread were too much...just an FYI.
I have lost a lot of weight due to only having liquids for the last week or more. I weighed in at 179.5 when they admitted me, now I am at 168. I have not been under 170 in a very long time...I don't plan on putting any of this back on.
