I have to know, is there ANYONE here that can eat these foods...? In moderation? Good lord, I just want a piece of each so much.

Been on prilo for 3 months and well, I miss these foods. :(

Nope, chocolate is a really bad trigger for most of us.

Pizza, yikes! The cheese, TOMATO sauce? and the grease makes it one of the worse for everyone.

I feel you, I miss them so much.

What I wouldnt give just to have one week without this problem. My mother makes the best lasagna.. :( She has a couple of boxes of brownie mix in her cabinets, she refuses to make because she knows I cant have it. So I guess I will stop by and bake them for the auction bake sale. It just kills me to do that.

Helpwantedplease, I completely understand your desire, but you have to avoid these foods if you want to remain pain-free. I think the three you mentioned are huge triggers for us all :(

The best pizza place in the entire city is below my apartment, and my husband still gets pizza from there, but I haven't had pizza in at least two months since this started getting bad. I can't even have a fingernail-sized piece of chocolate or I'll be up all night. I haven't eaten anything that's touched a tomato in probably a month. Sigh! I also make amazing lasagna and spaghetti... not anymore. Now, I am the salad queen! (Mind you, I NEVER ordered a salad in a restaurant before this nightmare started!)

My only advice is to try to look at food ONLY as fuel for your body, like the gas you put in your car. It's helped me make some very tough calls and remain (mostly) pain-free. There are so many ways to commit a GERD sin, though! Also be careful about overeating... gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME!

Hang in there, honey.

I too am hoping to eat these foods again in moderation. If it were just the GERD I would have given it a try since my HB is under control with medication. I also have really bad gastritis that I'm hoping heals enough to at least have small portions of my favorite foods. I did accidentally have a sample at the grocery store the other day that contained a forbidden food, and it didn't hurt me. I don't want to push things, so I'm waiting at least another month or so before I experiment with forbidden foods. Then it will be in only small portions. I'll see what the doc says too. smilewinkgrin

I was fortunate the only thing that gave me heartburn was peanut butter. It still bothers me after the surgery. :/

I can't touch those foods so I understand how you feel. You are not alone!
