First Day After Gastric Band Surgery
by Valerie Lemus
First Day Post Op Food Question:
I was wondering if it is ok to eat a "low sugar" vs. "no sugar" popsicle.
I could only find the ones with sugar in them and can't get to a store for a few days. I know why I should not have them, but will it hurt my stomach if I just have a couple over the next few days?
Yes, it's fine to eat the popsicles with a little sugar. They shouldn't hurt your stomach at all. The worst thing that will happen is that you eat a few more calories than you otherwise would have with the "sugar free" popsicles.
If you have bags of frozen fruit in your house, you can blend some of the fruit with water and then freeze in popsicle molds (or little dixie cups) to make your own nutritious popsicles.
