    Eating too soon

    So I was making deviled eggs for my husband and with out even thinking I took a bite of one chewed it up and swallowed it!!! I have no idea what I was thinking about or even why I did it! My sleeve surgery was on May 15th and I’m almost at the purée stage (about 4 days away). A lot of it came up but not all of it. I’m not in any pain but was for about 20 minutes afterwards. Should I call my doctor or just wait it out???

    Any MAY sleevers???

    Was sleeved on May 15th. So far so good. I have one more week of clear liquid before I progress to puréed. But I did purée some squash and zucchini that I had made my husband for dinner and it was amazing. A little early but I couldn’t help myself🙂. I’m still having a hard time with the protein but water intake is going good and walking 10,000 steps a day! Just take it day by day and you will do great!!

    I’m headed to Amazon right now and looking up these drinks. I seriously don’t think I can choke down one more shake. I was on 5 shakes a day for the week before surgery and that’s all. Nothing else so I’m done with them!!! Thanks for the suggestion!!! And you may have to send me some quiche!😜

    I can’t WAIT for a flipping scrambled egg!!!!! How long before you were cleared to the purée stage? I have my week post op visit on Monday. Fingers crossed!!

    I’m still gurgling and burping quite a bit. Trying to track my liquids but I’m quite sure that I’m not at 64oz. Protein........yeah that’s been another challenge. I am soooooo sick of protein shakes that I have to gag them down so it’s about half the protein. I’m good with my vitamins. And as far as #2 it hasn’t happened yet. Last time was a week ago but that’s actually normal for me so I’m not concerned about that.

    Pain

    I’m having my husband check it out each night. I’m still really swollen and I’m sure I will be for awhile. When is your surgery date?

    Pain

    Somewhat. I have a large bruise around the largest incision and have continued to take my pain meds every 6 hours. I’m sure it will get better but I am going to take off most of next week from my job as well. Thanks so much for checking on me❤️What a sweetheart!!! I see that you 5’2. I’m 5’1 and weighing in at 193. It’s going to be a long journey but well worth it!!!!

    The pre op diet was the worst!! Now at the clear liquid stage it’s not quite as bad. Sugar free popsicles and broth I can do for a week. I am having having a difficult time getting in all my protein and water so I’m working on that now.
