I was wondering if I took the skin off of an apple, if I would be able to eat it. Has anyone tried this?

  I eat them, and with the skin on. It hasn't  bothered me or gotten stuck.  When I first tried one  ,again after surgery,  I did peel it, and I chew very well.

I can eat them with the skin on, others can't.  The only way to find out is to try, but always start small.  You are 3 months out and I was about the same place when I had an apple.  But we are all a little different.

Good Luck

I eat a peeled apple almost every day.

I ate small amounts of peeled apples only a few weeks post-op with no problem at all, but there are some types of apple skins that I still cannot eat (and there are only about 5 things that I cannot eat!) almost 4 years out.

Thanks everyone for all your answers. I did try it peeled and had no problems. I am happy I can eat them. So far I have been very lucky, I seem to be able to eat just about everything with no problems. Well maybe that isn't a good thing.

It's very individual. I can eat bananas, any berries, grapes, any fresh veggie, but no apples at all - peeled or unpeeled. My pouch just doesn't like them.
