My post op diet isn't specific to these liquids as to when I can have them, and I'm a fan of both as low cal condiments. My food "restrictions" are lifted on December 22nd and I'm curious if either of them could cause trouble for my sleeve.

Any of your experiences would be very appreciated :)

It's really an individual thing once you are released.
I personally always had a sleeve of steel and nothing bothers me.. Spicy food is no problem and the acidity in vinegar is fine too.
When you are released a good rule of thumb is try things in a very small amount and sit with it.
If you handle it with no problems, you should be fine going on :)

I too have never had any trouble with spicy anything and I love all things spicy!  Like Laura said, eat small amounts and see what happens.  But only after you are released from your doctor.  Just think of all the yummy things just waiting for you to try again (in appropriate amounts of course). :)

Any liquid is counted as a liquid.  Sometimes we can luck out and it count double like protein drinks are also counted in your liquid intake for the day. :)

Oh the age old conundrum. Soup what to do??
Solid or a liquid???
Well **** it's both! The two things we aren't supposed to do together!!
So I just eat my soup and pretend I'm not breaking the rules :P
I think when you eat soup you just need to realize it might not stay with you as long as a piece of meat.
A couple of weeks ago we went to pho after a hike. my plan was to eat mostly the meat out of it and not the noodles and broth.,
But I was so freezing I ate all the broth instead and left to rest to bring home to my daughter (she will eat anything) :D

I love pho! Pfft waistline or no, I'll be chowing down on some of the noodles, when I'm cleared to at least!
