What Food Can't You Tolerate After 2 or More Years Post Surgery?

I find both sourdough and English muffins more tolerable. I eat an English muffin right before bed every night, soaked in butter with a thin layer of fruit jam, usually orange marmalade, to keep me from barfing in the middle of the night.

(The middle of the night barfing is not necessarily a DS thing - it started about 2 years ago and I’m almost 16 years out. I also take a Zofran before bed. My stomach doesn’t like to be empty. I also have GERD that is mostly controlled by two Protonix a day. I had GERD before my DS.)
That’s interesting (and horrible!) Is it the acid that makes you sick in the night or just pure nausea?

It has to be “real” sourdough, but...the secret ingredient is the LACK of yeast.

REAL sourdough has flour, water and salt...and instead of commercial yeast, a sourdough culture is used.
I always learn something from you. I looked up my favorite “sourdough” and it’s far from real.

I don’t think it’s acid. The nausea wakes me up, and I try to fight it, but usually fail. When I puke, there’s nothing in my stomach. After I puke for a few minutes, the wave of nausea goes away.

Might I suggest Dreamfield pasta? They do something weird to make the carbs less digestible—the inulin,
I think—which also means I can have small servings of pasta. Often hard to find in grocery stores, although I found a store that will order it for me. Even better, I found an online site that sells it—in larger quantities than I’d like—for a decent price. I don’t recall WHICH online site, but I can find it if anyone is interested. But I suggest you try a single box to see if it works for you. Their website has a coupon.

I'm going to find it and try it! I also bought a can of pasta made from the heart of palms... I'll let you know!

Wow, I can eat almost everything and I'm 3 years out. The only thing that causes me trouble is pure sugary things. Gummy bears, Jelly beans, etc. And alas fresh squeezed OJ.

Settledownnow I forgot we are surgery date twins. Three years for me is Aug 16. It's a miracle!
