Just when I finally thought I had turn the corner and was able to eat more, I woke up nauseated???  I was so excited that I was able to eat a french toast yesterday. For breakfast a small bowl of pasta.  For dinner french onion soup and a small piece of fish (lightly breaded).  All portions were small but when I woke up this morning I felt almost hung over.  Is my stomach that sensitive?  Back to soft oatmeal this morning :-(
When can I have a cup of coffee, glass of wine?  I know I sound pathetic - sorry just impatient.

Hi Liz,
Your stomach is still very sensitive.  I don't know if you had a reactive/sensitive stomach prior to your surgery, but if so, you will after your surgery.  My reactive stomach still gives me trouble from time to time, when I eat too much of something that is bothersome.
I have found that when I get feeling that way, Zantac can be very helpful.  I only take it the day/days my stomach is upset.  You're right that you should back of a little and baby your stomach.  Remember that your wrap was created out of it, and your stomach is still adjusting to the changes.
You'll go through a series of give and take with your eating.  Because your stomach is upset today doesn't mean you'll never regain normal eating.  I eat ANYTHING I want to eat.  If I know it's likely to upset my stomach, I do it with eyes wide-open.  Sometimes it's worth it.
If you don't normally have a reactive/sensitive stomach, then what you're experiencing is simply a product of your surgery and recovery.
Hang in there! It will get better!
