Did you have your surgery on the 19th? If so, I guess you are just doing liquids?

I had mine on January 19th, so I'm a little over 4 months out.

My suggestions woud be to follow your doctors orders to a T. There's a reason that they give them to us. I see where many people try to advance the eating stages and it can cause issues and harm to your sleeve.

I also suggest to constantly be drinking and sipping. It's really hard to get in all the fluids we should have. At first you have to take pretty tiny sips and your tummy will make weird noises, but later on it gets easier to drink. Now I can drink normal.

In the beginning I couldn't really tell when I was full, so I measured everythng I ate. I was allowed 2oz or 1/4 cup per meal, and that's basically what I ate. Sometimes after eating I would feel a weird feeling in my throat, but not the normal full feeling from past days. Now I don't need to measure much anymore as I can tell what portion size is correct. I also have the normal full feeling now in my stomach, however it took a few months before I had that feeling. I still am only able to eat about 2 to 2 1/2 onces per meal.

If you follow the rules, you will be successful with your sleeve. I pretty much eat anything I want now. I try very hard to keep my Calories between 600 - 800 per day and my carbs at 30 or lower.

Good luck, and keep us posted on how you are doing. If you have any more questions, just ask. You'll find tons of great people and advice on this board.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
