nocough, I would wait several months or however long it takes for you to be able to do a regular old burp before you try carbonated drinks. When you first try them, start out with a few sips at a time and see if you can burp.
As far as what I can eat, I can eat pizza, Mexican food. I avoid anything with too much garlic, I guess I'm just afraid because of being so miserable after eating too much garlic before that it doesn't even appeal to me now. I used to love oranges, pineapples and other citrus fruits, but they don't appeal to me any more either. I have also lost my desire for coffee and I keep thinking that I am going to make myself a pot of coffee one morning and just see if I can enjoy it again. I used to love to have several cups of coffee and read the Sunday paper.
Just be sure to pace yourself at whatever you try and don't try anything too soon. I was so afraid to try steak for that first time and I really can't remember for sure now, but it must have been at least four months or longer. I went out to dinner with friends and I felt safe that they would take care of me if anything happened. I just cut it in very small bites and enjoyed the heck out of it.
