I don't mean this to sound harsh ... but, what does your plan say? You really need to follow it to the letter the first few weeks (especially) ... Your little tummy has been through a lot an needs TLC.

I'm a few days over two weeks and NO I didn't do potatoes. liquids ONLY for me for two week. Now I'm doing puree foods and one food at a time. This is how someone explained it to me yesterday.

Your stomach was put to sleep, then the doctor cut most of it away and made a baby stomach. Now when your stomach woke up it has to learn all over again how to process. Like a BABY you don't want to feed them a combination of food at once you always try ONE FOOD at a time to see how their stomach will react to that food. I'm a very visual person so that REALLY put it in perspective for me!

This might sound silly to some but it HELPED ME! Have a GOOD day and HANG IN THERE it gets better. The RESULTS is what makes it FANTASTIC!!!

yep I already did 2 weeks of liquids 2 more isn't really going to be that much harder..I do not I mean do not want a leak . My doc told me to follow the plan and he is almost sure that I will not have a problem. But if I vary he is very cautious and don't want to take any unneccesary risks of developing a leak.. If it was me I would follow post op to the letter.

From everything I've learned, its much too soon for mashed potatoes. Remember this...Just because It will go down ok doesnt me its safe right now. From what I understand , your stomach is trying to heal and these first 4 weeks are CRUICAL. Its not worth a bite of mashed potatoes. I would error on the side of caution.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
