My wife prepared a home-made burger yesterday. I just thought it would be a plain burger. But not, it had cheese, butter and mayonnaise in it. I had a second thought of eating it because of the dairy products, which is part of the “to be avoided foods” in the food list that I have.
However, part of me wanted to eat, to test how my system would react with dairy products; cheese, butter and mayonnaise .
And so I ate.
I felt the cheese when I took my first bite. So, I opened the bun and saw an uneven slice of about 1/4″ x 2″ x 4″ cheese and the mayonnaise dripping on the side. Then I thought, “this must be good dairy test”.
I ate the whole burger and followed it up with not a softdrink but only water.
Later in the evening, I felt some gas running around my stomach. Grumbling sounds.
Then I recalled what my friend said, that her brother, who also had underwent a lap chole (laparoscopic cholecystectomy) procedure, was advised to take dairy products but only non-fat. But I wonder if there is a non-fat cheese, I haven’t checked it though. And as what she said, her brother is now lactose intolerance.
But it is part of the test to know how far my system can take and what would be the reactions. And now I know, there was a slight upset stomach but I did not take any medicines. And gas formation after eating the burger with cheese, butter, and mayonnaise. Maybe my system got a sudden intake of dairy products, I should have had take it gradually.
But still it is worth a test.
