I had my surgery 4 years ago. My surgeon left the practice and I only got to talk to a bariatic dietitian once. I've been confused about foods I can eat this far out. She told me not to eat lettuce unless it's a little bit of shredded. Why? Also I don't know if I can eat a boiled egg, an orange or fruit and vegetables with skin on it.

This far out there is nothing at all you can't eat... but lots and lots of foods you shouldn't eat :)

I had an apple during year two after surgery, but waited at least one more year before trying an orange. I really was not comfortable eating many foods for the first five years. I still try a small amount of a new food to see if there are any weird reactions.
