    Hey.

    I still found that I could have sugar. I never tried sweetener but everyone is different. Hope you have surgery scheduled soon, I'm a week post op and although I have been sore from the op it's the best thing I ever did.

    Xx

      Of course I will. You only really read or hear about people and how they are after if they've had problems.

      So far it's been a positive experience, I am so pleased to be rid of that pain and feeling so ill, I've been sore and achy since but it's nothing like an attack!! I did use paracetamol, ibuprofen and codeine for the first 2 days then gradually got it down to nothing. I'm sore tonight but I saw my 10 month old nephew and went out for the first time so I think I over did it a bit, you really do have to listen to your body as it soon lets you know if you've done too much or reached too high.

      Do you have to go in for a pre op? If you do maybe ask then what they recommend about sugar or sweetener, luckily it never effected me I think it was the high sugar contents that actually kept me going before the op. X

      I don't know yet f I have to go to for a pre op. I went to see a nutritionist so I could get a better idea of the things that are safe to eat, but she said that unfortunately that is different for every person and she mentioned that many people who have issues with foods after the surgery is because the jab food alergies snd don't know it. She recommended for me to take that blood test, but that is pricy and I can't do it rigth now. I also have IBS so i have to be carefull with what i eat. She recommended me some probiotics and digestive enzymes that contain bile salts and are supposed to help m digest food but specially fat. I hope everything goes well
