I had my nissen 7 months ago. My appetite and the foods I eat have returned to normal (I can eat everything I used too without any problems) but if I eat to much I get pain and nausea so portion size is something that I am always very aware of. I bought myself a set of small plates & use these instead of large dinner plates so I am not tempted to dish up to much food.
Today I took my two grandsons out for the day and we had lunch at McDonalds followed by a movie. I ordered a burger, a small fries & soda. I could only manage 1/2 of this before I knew it was time to stop or I would be feeling the consequences where as before surgery I would have up-sized the order & eaten it all.
Maybe this will change as my recovery progresses but for now I am happy to take it slowly because I dont want to end up suffering.
