I'm in the puréed stage and might I add it is horrible! I just want to stay in liquids and Popsicles till my stomach heals. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am trying to drink my protein but its super hard. Also I tried the purée chicken salad tonight and I think my sleeve tried crawling out of my throat. It hurt so bad. So I'm at a lost for what I can eat. I can't to cottage cheese...ugh...the thought if eating that makes me nauseous! Please help friends!

You are so new out from surgery! even though your doctor released you to purée you may not be ready.. And that's ok!
Greek yogurt is really packed with protein and might be easier on your stomach, also refried beans. A lot of people can eat cream of wheat.

Yes, I'm ten days out and already on puréed but I was on that by the 3rd day although I have not been able to eat any purée only yogurt, jello, and Popsicles. I have taken myself back to the liquid stage bc I know my body best and its not ready for puréed lol

I am on the puréed stage too. Search the Internet for recipes and you should find one good ones like Shelly's baked ricotta, garlic Parmesan cauliflower, sugar free baked custard, eggs, and soups. I made a chicken mushroom soup that was terrific! (Yes, you do have to put it in the blender to purée it, but it doesn't look bad). Did you try light string cheese? I have been able to tolerate that pretty well.

There are lots of options out there besides shakes and Popsicles. Best of luck to you!

10 days out is difficult to get enough protein without protein shakes or the Isopure. I was having difficulty even swallowing the shakes because I was so sick of the taste. Isopure seemed like a big relief. Didn't have to worry about getting enough protein and the taste isn't wretched (until about the 12th bottle). I just use them now as a back up and I'm almost at 4 weeks. I just got to the mushy foods at week 3 and am still so happy to actually have food.
You're correct in realizing that you know your body best. Backing up to liquids again is very wise! When it hurts to eat it, then don't do it.
I ate watermelon after 2nd week. Wasn't on the "approved" list, but it went down so well. No pain from just a few bites. I eventually got to where I could eat a cup of it, but now I've backed off since I can have mushy foods and don't need the carbs.
