  1. I'm in the same boat right now. I got VSG on Dec 20 2021, I am 2 weeks post op, my plan wanted me on pureed foods only 3 days after surgery... which I personally felt was way too soon, so I stayed on Protein Shakes and broths only for the first 10 days. I had lost about 12 lbs from surgery date up to when I started puree on day 10, but just noticed I have gained about a pound last couple of days. I have been having a hard time getting things moving though too (smooth move tea actually did literally nothing), so I'm sure that has a little to do with it, Miralax takes the full three days once a day before it does anything at all. I'm sure it gets better after the 3-5 week hump from what I've heard.

    Thanks for this post...I am starting my pre op diet in about 2 weeks and I am worried about it. I can have shakes or small meals of Protein and veggies. I'm going to try 2 shakes and 2 meals to begin and for the last few days go with all shakes to make sure my liver has shrunk. Keeping my fingers crossed I have the same experience.

    My pre op diet was similar- 2 meals of Protein Shakes, dinner 4oz of meat with a half cup o non-starch veggies....I know it's what the surgeon says to do but SOoo many others talk about going full clear liquid at least the last day or 2. My surgery is supposed to be Dec. 20th (1 more day of prep) and I'm a bit torn. Per the surgeon I'm just supposed to switch it around and ha e the meat and veggies for breakfast the day before surgery, then the protien shakes for lunch and dinner and nothing at all after midnight. Then post op. Im supposed to start pureed food on like day 3 after surgery. My own instincts here are to do only liquids tomorrow, only Clear Liquids after 5pm, then post surgery liquids up through at LEAST day 7....I don't know about going outside of what's recommended tho...
