I had two piece of chicken, a portion of fries, half a cup of pepsi and a sweetcorn, all with a side of gravy. I was beside myself with glee!
I know this doesn't look like anything special, but I can't explain to you enough how much of a relief it is to know that the food you've eaten won't have any painful consequence. Now I'll only get fat. Haha.
Before surgery, I was not allowed:
a) fatty foods including cheese, fried food, chocolate, chicken skin, bacon etc
b) fizzy drinks,
Now, all those worries are gone, and I can eat anything! Although I'm still sceptical (hence only half a cup of pepsi) I'm re-discovering all the foods I've previously avoided religiously. And it is awesome. :) It still hurts when I sneeze, but I thank God every day that I can enjoy the simple pleasure of eating again :) Hoorah for food! :)
