Greetings friends, I'm four weeks post-op and for the last four days can't hold food down. I've also noticed when I make something I can't eat it again. Is this normal? I'd rather drink then eat

That's definitely not normal. Have you called your surgeon?

I agree with the above poster. I'd call your surgeon. Although I'm not saying it's a stricture (because it might not be), you're in the right time frame for one.

This definitely sounds like a stricture. Call your surgeon. It is a quick and easy fix. Avoid any solid foods until you get this resolved. It does not get better on its own and some people have gotten to where they vomit liquids too. Get in touch with your surgeon's office today.

I had problems in the beginning too just make sure your getting in your liquids and protein any way you can even if you have to revert back to your last stage menu .

As for not being able to eat a food a second time my question would be are you reheating it in a microwave?

It actually changes the texture and it can be to dry to go down. I very rarely use a microwave anything. I throw stuff in my air fryer to reheat. I had many troubles as I progressed through the stages so I want you to know I feel for you. But I want to reassure you it does get better with time. Good luck on your journey.
