The surgery went well, and they gave me nice drugs to get me through that and the immediate aftermath.
I haven't had any reflux since the surgery (knock wood); but on the other hand, I feel like I have a belly full of sharp bits of tin.
Which will wear off, I'm sure.
Here is my diet for the next week:
Clear fruit juices
Decaff coffee or tea (no milk)
After I have tolerated those foods, I can add these (one at a time):
"Thinned" cream of wheat
"Strained" cream soups (IDK what this even means)
Yogurt, but only the kind without fruit
Carnation Instant Breakfast
After three weeks of the above two diets, I can move on to such delights as skinless, boiled vegetables (cooked soft), milkshakes, and "moist" fish (once again, idk what this means).
Astute readers will have noticed what is missing from this regime -- no real coffee, and no sodas. I mostly drink seltzer, but that's right out also. No carbonation allowed.
I could do without seltzer, but coffee?
