VSG Dietary Guidelines



Recommended Posts

Maybe we could get this "Sticky'd" on the forum. I ran across this link and think has some really great information.

It's a long, detailed PDF file chalked full of information for VSG Patients. This covers post-op diet to vitamins/supplements, quick guide to Protein count in certain foods.

Doing pretty good today. I ate some crackers, about 4oz of a baked potato with cheese and ranch dressing, and just had 1/4 of an apple.

Thankfully, the pain while eating and drinking is completely resolved. I just have some residual pain under my right rib. Dr. R said he had to take down some scar tissue around my liver just to get to my gallbladder so I expect to be sore for a few more days. He also did some exploring around in my abdominal cavity to ensure everything looked good. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good. I think I'll be able to sleep in bed tonight instead of the recliner.

You know, it sounds like it was a good thing for this to happen. He was able to remove scar tissue that could have hurt you down line for sure, so with a clean bill you are on your way. So happy for you!

Hey Tiff,

Thanks for that and so glad you're feeling better. A question for the board; what's this about raw veggies? I mean, I get it, I understand why we should stay away from raw cellulose overall but... really? I wasn't a veggie maniac "before" but I hate to think I'll not be able to have salad and/or most raw vegetables from here on out. Any thoughts?? Thanks guys.

I've been eating spinach salad. Chew well. Not having any problem. But it's so soft...not like carrots or broccoli.

There was one poster quite a while back who ate coconut, and ended up with it stuck in her stomach in a ball. She had to have it surgically removed. So I would say, I'd try only small amounts at a time, of any tough veggie, and chew chew chew.

I was allowed to eat raw veggies and salads around the 3 month post-op mark. I remember the post Cajun is referencing. It was a bezoar that develop in this one particular patient's tummy. I enjoy salads pretty regularly, but I make sure that I chew plenty before swallowing.
