Recommended Posts

Hi again, decided to go overseas for surgery! Will be gone for about 2-3 months and was wondering if anyone could offer me tips on what post-op foods, shakes, liquids you recommend to take with me. I am sure that there will be food stuff where I am going because of the amount of people having the lap-band and sleeve procedure done there. BUT, it is overseas and they do not have access to the world of quality products we have here in the U.S.A...please let me know what tastes good and what goes down well to take especially for the liquid and mushy part of the post-op diet. Bless you all and thank you in advance.

Where are you going to have the surgery done? Living (and having been sleeved) in Sweden I can only speak for this country specifically but I can assure you that we have a fairly big selection of Protein products. You can get them in normal grocery stores, pharmacies and health stores, so not a problem really. For the mushie stage I was adviced to eat things like cottage cheese, scrambled eggs etc so all things found in the stores. :)

Best wishes and good luck with your surgery!

Ditto with NinaX - I live in Spain and have a wealth of products here, plus access to lots in the UK as well......so I would say it really depends on which country you're going to as to how much you need to consider taking with 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.
