I was sleeved a week ago and on my next diet stage it say to avoid corn and potato. Do you know why? And this stage is pureed food but what can happen if I have a bite or two of solid food?

You could rip the staple line! :tongue_smilie: Also could barf. Don't take the risk. Go slow its worth it.

Corn and potatoes are high carb. Also corn is difficult to digest. I still don't eat corn, because if I do, hours later I burp it up. It's pretty gross.

Your stomach is healing. Progressing your diet can cause stress on your staple line, induce vomiting, causing stress on your staple line, food can get stuck in the staple line thus causing stress on your staple line, long story short, it's a big risk of causing a leak which is extremely painful, long exhaustive recovery, and other complications. Stick to the program in just a couple of weeks you can try out more solid foods. Let your body heal properly.

The first couple of weeks are hard, I know... but you have to do everything you can to protect your staples and new, tiny-tummy. This isn't "food" time... is what I kept telling myself... "it's healing time". At a couple of weeks out your body is still getting the Ghrelin out of your system, which will make you feel hungry, which I experienced, and I won't deny it was hard. BUT, you can make it through. I'd really wait to start anything other than clear or full liquids until you have to move to food... It's worth it to you and your healing sleeve. :smile::smile:

If you have a Kroger or Fred Meyer near you, I would suggest trying some of the CarbMaster Yogurt. It's a great source of protein/low carbs and very filling (if you add 1/2 scoop of unflavored Protein powder, you get even more Protein and no change in taste).

This is hard time, but follow your instructions. They were written to help you heal and maximize your weightloss.

As noted above refried Beans were AWESOME when I got to the puree stage. Also, try pureed chili and Campbell's Beef Vegetable - they are higher in carbs, but the little you eat shouldn't be a problem. They have a lot of flavor and can satisfy that need to "eat" real food.

Best of luck!

      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.
