We just ordered some Chinese food. I love sweet and sour chicken....think that is ok to eat? I still haven't had pizza or my favorite....a Philly cheesesteak. I don't want to suffer a blockage. I know better than to order Chinese vegetables right now. My surgeon said I could eat anything but chew, chew, chew.

I've eaten Chinese quite a bit since I had my ileo and don't have trouble, but the cabbage and onions can gas you alot. Do you take Beano? I sometimes take Beano when I eat gassy foods.

I just ate Wonton soup, two bites of a shrimp roll, rice and 5 pieces of sweet and sour chicken. I find I get very hungry but because I have to chew everything to a pulp, I really don't eat much. The chicken they give you are real little, like nuggets. I only had half a cup of the soup and about two tablespoons of the rice. I fill up real fast. Do you have the same problem? I suppose it really isn't a "problem". This must keep me from gaining weight. Since my ileo, almost six weeks ago, I only gained three pounds.

i would just watch the cabbage and such, and the spices might give you gas!

I am able to eat my fav type of pizza, Meat Lovers! my surgeon told me there is a risk of a blockage if i dont chew enough but then he also said theres a risk to everything and to just go get a pizza. "he could tell i wanted one lol."
