Hi, anyone still reading/checking.
Well, I had an emergency gall bladder removal Sunday night. (fortunately, it was the laproscopic version, but it’s still major surgery with 4 incision sites and plenty of staples to show for it.)
So, for the next month, at least, almost a zero fat diet.
No more than 2 g. of fat per meal.
Meals will consist of:
skinless chicken or turkey
baked potato or baked yam
a tiny bit of grape jelly
I tried banana-it was a no go
Yeah, sucks to be me. I’m off work until at least 5/21, but if my digestive system doesn’t compensate for the lack of the gallbladder soon, I might have to do reduced hours, because as of now, I couldn’t make it out of the house before 9-9:30 am. We’ll see how I am; I get the staples removed on Thursday afternoon.
So, primal diet is a thing of the past for me. With luck, I can add beef/fats at SOME point, but I don’t anticipate a steak or hamburgers for months and months, if ever. Once you’ve had this pain, and learn what your body can do after the organ is gone, hell if you want to tempt fate.
On the plus side, I’ve lost 4 lbs. in 3 days, post op this week. Not how you want to do it, but it needed to be done.
Once I get a little better, hopefully by next week, I shall be able to venture some small amount of time in my 2nd week off visiting your blogs. I have missed you.
Word to the wise; easy on fats. Even the ‘healthy’ ones. Because you never know if you are susceptible to this; no family history of gallbladder issues, yet here I sit.
thanks for still dropping by!
