  1. I'm having a hard time thinking of food that would be good pureed. Also my doctor said I could have soft cheese because most people want to be able to bite/chew something, what are some soft cheeses that taste good?

    Any Ideas On Full Liquids

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions! I will defiantly be trying them!
  5. I had surgery April 18th so I'm 9 days out. What are some good thins to eat besides SF jello, cream soups, SF Pudding and broth. I feel as I'm eating the same things over and over and its getting to the point that I can't stomach the smell of them. I also feel that I am not eating enough I get full with less than 2 oz. Any suggestions of new things I can eat.

    Such Pain

    I had my surgery April 18th and I'm still in pain/sore, but no where near the pain I was in right after surgery. I am mostly in pain from my incisions and my back is pretty sore , but I think that is from sleeping in the chair. Last night was the first night I was able to sleep in my bed, I woke up a little sore, but after walking I felt better. It does get better except slowly.

    Was This A Mistake?

    I also feel the same way, I was sleeved April 18th so only 8 days out. I find myself wondering what did I do to myself? I self inflicted pain on myself, although I know it was pain to make me a healthier and happier person. I just know right now it sucks, watching everyone around me eat as I'm drinking my water. Its a weird feeling because I know I don't the food, I think its all mental. I just keep telling myself its going to get better, I know it will its just going to take time. I also find myself taking my pain meds at night to sleep. I had been sleeping in the chair and last night was my first night in my own bed, but my back is still killing me or I should say my whole body is so sore. Well goodluck and hang in there, I know its going to get better from here.

    Thanks so much! I had my surgery April 18th and I just stopped taking my pain meds and I'm still having some pain. Everyone that I have talked to says they were usually off their pain meds a few days after they got home, for some reason I feel the need to keep taking it.

    Where Are My April 2012 Sleevers?

    I was sleeved on the 18th. I came home yesterday, so I was only in the hospital for 2 days. Overall everything went smoothly. I am still struggling to get down all 64oz of water with trying to get down my protein. I am still in a bit of pain on my right side, which my surgeon said I would because its a deep stitch where they pulled my excess stomach out. I have not had any pain meds since yesterday so the pain is tolerable. I recently started having gas pains, anyone have any suggestions of how to cure these?
