I was surprised to see the dish served at the table yesterday – a deep-fried fatty pork with skin.
When I sat on the chair, I was saying to myself, “Am I going to eat this fried pork with fats and skin?” So, I looked at the other dish, a more favorable one – fish. But since it’s already 4 months after my lap chole procedure, 2 months after I got hospitalized and was supposedly scheduled for an ERCP procedure, I thought that it would be another food to test.
The pork meat was smaller than the fats on all cuts. As I took a bite on the fried pork, I felt the fats and the oil but with well cooked meat and crunchy skin. And it was great to eat back the food that I longed for. I have been fasting for months on delicious yet to be avoided foods because I no longer have a gallbladder. But yesterday, I took another test, another step of eating back normally – eating a to be avoided food.
Few hours later, I did not feel any upset stomach nor pain nor disturbing gas. And more hours later, there was no discomfort. I went to bed and woke the next day with a-ok feeling.
