Transcript: Adding foods after surgery

When it came to eating soft foods, I started out with a scrambled egg. I could only eat half of the scrambled egg. Your eyes are bigger than your stomach. You think well I’m going to eat this egg and maybe a little oatmeal. You might get two bites in at first. But you know, it really wasn’t a problem or an issue, I knew that my food had to be soft enough so that it would go down smoothly without bothering my stomach. 

I don’t have any problem eating anything now except maybe pasta. Which I try not to eat, or bread. But I usually stick to chicken, turkey and fish. Things that I know go down easily because if I try something once and it doesn’t go down or it gives me an issue, I don’t mess with it again.
