Diet following fundoplication

Edited , 3 users are following.

I had the procedure done 7 days ago. Was advised to introduce a soft diet from day after surgery for 6 weeks.

Has anyone who previously stopped eating pasta tried reintroducing pasta on this diet? According to the leaflet from hospital I should be able to eat pasta as long as extra sauce is added, but I had trouble keeping pasta down for a few years before the op, so is it worth the risk?

Also has anyone successfully reintroduced bread?

    I had a fundiplication 2 years ago, for at least 6 weeks I stayed on cereals with warm milk, smoothies, soups, mashed potato etc, anything that was soft and quite runny. Gradually i introduced harder food but bread I found quite hard to get down, toast was easier. Now i pretty much eat what I want I don't know about the pasta thing.

    Good luck!

    For info I had mine done on the NHS too but in England. It was all very 'tight' to start with and I struggled with some foods, the only lasting issue i have is that can no longer vomit which is horrible if I pick up a gastric bug also I can't belch either.

      I am sorry to hear that. that was a big fear of mine, but I am still able to do both.

      Tried pasta (with bistro gravy, which I am glad to say was much tastier than it sounds) And that was fine.

      My diet sheet also says I could have moist sponge cake... Unfortunately, this is how I found I can still vomit.
