Howdy y'all--

I tried to find locals but didn't see an Austin group. I'm having my surgery (VGS) in February, and would love to talk to other Texas folks. Those other people just don't understand the allure of tortillas that we have to face on a daily basis!

Hola!

They just don't know!! I've been eating chicken mole enchiladas cuz I'm pre-op... I was THRILLED when the doc and dietitian said than "tortilla" chips are okay if you are not exceeding carbs-- apparently it's just the breads that ball up in the digestive system that we have to watch out for-- like sopapillas! haha

I've tried Beanitos chips, and they're pretty good. I will miss flour tortillas, but can try them eventually, right? 

And QUESO- well, I'm just gonna savor the real cheese that I've been denying myself. Queso was for those "being naughty" times, but I looooovee all kinds of cheese. I feel SO relieved that it's actually more okay to eat cheese again (if my body can handle it).

Hey ahuesatti,

I'm actually from Austin too!  Well N Austin (Cedar Park).  I had the RNY on 06/28/17 by Dr. Faulkenberry.  

But I definitely agree with you.....the struggle with tortillas is real!

Howdy! I'm with Dr. Sherrod at Southwest Bariatric Surgeons in their central Austin location. 

Thank goodness we can still eat guac and queso! ;)

After WLS, I can eat guac but the queso is off limits for me.  :(

Hi Diana,

Can you tell me more about Faulkenberry and his group? I had my surgery done in Houston and need "after care" now...just curious what his group is like etc. Thanks


If something makes you laugh and giggle, buy it or marry it !
