I had my surgery December 13th and I can eat like 1/2 cup of Soup or 1/4 cup of soft foods. It all really depends on the food. I take really small bites and eat slowly..but not more than 30 minutes per meal.

VSG 12/5/11 and I think I am probably eating about 1/2 cup per meal. So far the only thing I've had a hard time eating has been chicken or scrambled eggs. I can eat more then two bites and find myself not feeling hungry per say.... but more like empty a bit more frequently then I did before. However- I think this could be more to do with TOM?

If you feel as though you are not getting enough Protein it is best to continue supplementing with Protein shakes.

I actually managed to eat a whole small Wendy's chili tonight! I was a bit shocked, but it did take me over an hour!!

Not sure how long ago you had surgery? 2 bites is about right early on. I would eat from a baby spoon to stretch it out to 4 or 5 baby bites sometines - and it would still take 20 minutes to get it down. Over time it gets much better, but that is all I could eat in the beginning.

Even now, I am good for about 6 bites and then I have to hit the breaks.

DOS 12/15/2012

first real food this morningrolleyes.gif I made a scrambled egg - wow how totally cool. It looked so small in the big frying pan (gonna buy a small pan) anyways i sat down with my "breakfast" enjoyed every bite,chewed alot, etc. hurray.gif

i only ate half blink.png i couldn't believe it, i've actually heard others on the board say they couldn't eat a whole egg either, but me..... wow- but the truth is i definitely felt full, but..... what if i had eaten the other 1/2? it sure looked like i could.

the reason i didn't eat more was because i knew i was full and figured i didn't need to over eat. is this the right feeling i should have. haven't been there yet with experience.

6 weeks out. I can still only manage about 2oz Protein and then a few tablespoons of veggies. Egg and 1 slice bacon or a sausage for Breakfast.

Some meals a little more-some times 2 bites and I'm done. Tonight I had 1.5 oz of small meatballs-1/4 steamed zucchini slices and about 1/4 cup Pasta sauce. Ate it all. But didn't need more.

I wouldn't worry about it unless you are not getting enough Protein.< /p>

      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.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
