So I got the go ahead to move to pureed foods. Last night for supper I made a scrambled egg, with a sprinkle of cheese, and some salsa.
I could only finish about half of it. I have a friend from high school that has been thru the whole process 7 years ago, and she is helping me along. She said this is a normal amount. After I ate I had pain in my right side. Like a ran a marathon and had a side ache. (Someday the marathon, not yet)
I got online and saw that many people have had similiar things happen once they move to pureed or soft food. My friend thought it was my intestines getting used food again. Anyone know? It doesn’t hurt as bad today, but I can feel it a little. Like my body is confused.
I attempted to do some yogurt for breakfast but the taste was just awful. So I tried some cottage cheese…and the same thing. My taste buds seemed to have changed and I no longer like those two things right now.
I have about 2 oz of apple sauce that I’m waiting to eat for lunch in a little bit. The dr said I will still be getting the majority of my nutrients from protein shakes. I’m ok with it. But as the nutritionist and I went over the next month of changes, I started to freak out a little. I will be so scared to go to real food.
I’ll deal with that later. Not yet. But still. Freaking out!
