Let me first say that this forum has really been helpful. I am 3 weeks post-surgery and I am still really on a solid liquid diet of malt-o-meal,mashed potatoes and ensure. At this point I am continuing to have heartburn and when I try to add new items to my diet, I feel nauseous. I am not sure if the heartburn is from the fact that I am re-introducing foods to my diet or if the procedure did not work. I spoke to my doctor about my symptoms and he said that since I am able to burp I should not have the nausea or heartburn. In some of the other posts, people are eating a wide variety of foods. Is there anyone out there that had/have the same issues that I am having? Any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
