Second- has your surgeon suggested taking a step back to easier to digest foods like cottage cheese, protein puddings and greek yogurt? It may give your lining of your stomach a chance to heal easier rather than putting a dense harder to breakdown protein in it like chicken (many folks have issues with chicken btw, it seems to be the harder of the proteins to break down..)
If you aren't comfortable with your office switch docs to get one who you can be comfy with and you will find you have another medical professional as your champion cheering you on who is also better able to treat your special needs (and let's face it..we do have special needs post VSG)..
IMHO of course...

it didnt feel ok in the stomach for about 3.5 months out, chicken took me longer, like 4 months out.
Toasted bread will sit better, untoasted tends to be gummy, but i do lean towards whole wheat flat bread because it feels the best doing down.
do you like milk? milk is a good "indirect" way to get protein and carbs in drink form. kills 2 birds with one stone. and not nasty like protein shakes can be. you can even add sugarfree hershey syrup or sugarfree straweberry quik syrup
if you eat mashed potatoes you can get carbs and add a little unflavored protein powder and milk to thin it out and up the protein content..
