You should mostly avoid high fiber food, such as celery, corn, oranges, asparagus, pineapples, and sweet potatoes. They usually get caught above the band and can also cause a blockage. When I got my lap band surgery done, I used to it bladderwrack
all of the time. It helped a lot with easing my pain, and my surgeon recommended it. It has a lot of health benefits along with relieving pain, such as aiding in weight loss, helping with arthritis, preventing urinary tract infections, and so much more. For all the people who recently got their surgeries done, you should give it a try!
