shakes, and other liquids. What can I expect next? Next few weeks??? months??? etc. What has been your personal findings during these

time periods.???

Thanks, Daron

You will eventually move from Clear Liquids to liquids to mushies the solid food. You will have to eat slower cut small and chew chew chew. Exercise and drink drink drink. Everyday maybe different so at the beginning you maybe hungry, maybe not. You will figure out what your \band will tolerate over the time.

You will be amazed as to what you don't crave anymore.

It will just get better and every time you move into a new phase you be thrilled. You will enjoy food more and get satisfied quicker. Just follow the surgeon's/nutritionist's instruction. Goodluck on your journey to a healthy you.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
