Hi masonbiker,
Although I'm not a reduction patient, I have looked up a couple of sites for you to browse. For sure, follow what your doctor instructed you to do.

Hi Ed!

Great info from TWO - I would also strongly urge you to check in with your "team". I hope your doctor has referred you to a nutritionist or dietician who can help you with planning your meals and addressing problems like pain and gas. Also, the doctor who performed the procedure should be alerted to any pain that you have.

Best of luck to you moving forward and please keep checking in here!
