I know my doc says I have to wait till I am 8 weeks out from surgery to have raw veggies and lettuce.. But once I can have these things how hard on your system is a salad?

Seriously craving a romaine with some chicken and avacado.

it's gonna hurt
you're probably thirsty
I'd reccommend heatign some veggie soup draining the liquid and eating the veggies Very carefully!
and FYI you do not want White meat chicken
Even now it can get stuck for me

You know I haven't had a problem with white meat. I guess I should add a yet to that. But I have had some a few times and it went down fine.

I am sad the salad will hurt.

I haven't had a problem with salad or raw veggies. I eat hummus and raw veggies a lot.

No problems with salad, raw veggies or chicken. Beef sometimes makes my belly hurt. Pork, like any kind of sausage or chops, yik.

sindurella - you're just gonna have to try it and see what happens to you. when i started back on veggies, things like cucumber, tomatoes, zucchini worked very well. other veggies had to be cooked to the OTHER side of crunchy [not my favorite]. salad wasn't easy at first, but eventually, it worked out. after about, oh, 6 months, one of my FAVORITE lunches was some deli chicken, shredded carrot, chopped cuke, chopped tomato all rolled up in a nice big romaine leaf. with a little blue cheese.

spinach is tough for me - baby leaves work better, and if they're mixed into a regular salad, i'm usually OK. but cooked spinach is usually a challenge for some reason.

just keep trying different things. if something causes problems, try it again in a week or so - it's a daily adventure!

at first, nothing raw would sit well but over time I could eat raw veggies if i chewed the living daylights out of them.

Go slow, test the waters. Follow your dr. directions to the letter, it is the key!
