Ok so I had lunch today w/my brother and sister..
I had my go to meal tuna fish and instead of fries I asked the waitress
To just give me extra she gave me a seprate platter w/pickles and cole I waited for my tuna I ate 1small pickle...I then had about 1/2cup tuna...
Not 10 minutes after my tubatini Rex acted up BIG TIME!! I had such pain!!!
Like I wa*****hed and also an intense gas like pain...
I thought why is Teeny tubatini acting up on me like this..and then on the way home I remembered THE question after this long winded story is...
Has anyone else had pain after eating a pickle...I figured it was the skin of the pickle bothering lil tubatini...and was too hard to digest...
BTW...I'm 7 weeks out today....

I'm 6 months out now but at about 5 months out, I tried some strawberries and had intense pain. I assume it was the seeds. I'm waiting for seeded berries and such until I am at goal.

I was really hungry for pickles the other day. I hadn't had any since preop.  So i bought some kind of expensive dill ones that looked really good.  i was so sad they just did not taste that good to me. Plus I went up a pound of water retention from the sodium.  >>>sigh>>>.  Maybe I will start liking them again some day  Didn't bother tummy too much, just felt a little aciidy.

I did count them as a veggie.  Don't know if I should'veGood news is I now like hot tea again.  I couldn't stand it for 4 1/2 mos.
