Hello fellow sleevers,

I am interested in knowing what was your schedule diet progression after your sleeve, and what if any complications/problems you had with yours. Thank you.

I posted mine below for comparison:

Sleeve Day-Ice chips only

Post-op Day 1-3: Clear liquids only

Post-op Day 4- 6:Protein drinks with low fat milk or Water only

Post-op Day 7-13: Full liquids with Protein Drinks

Post-op Day 14-20: pureed with protien drinks

Post-op Day 21-34: Soft with Protein Drinks (only one item per day may be added)

Post-op Day 35 and on: Regular with only one item a day added in.

Sleeve day: nothing by mouth

Postop day 1-2: Clear Liquids

Postop days 3-14: Full liquids with Protein shakes

Postop days 15-56. (2 months post op): soft foods

Postop days 2 months and on: regular diet

I have not had any problems other than lactose intolerance with drinking milk...cheese is fine :)

My surgeon has you do ten days of clear liquids, ten days of full liquids and ten days of mushies.

I did have problems, but that was in large part my own fault. I just couldn't get enough fluids in my body. We all know how difficult it is in the beginning to even just sip a drink. I didn't push myself enough to sip, sip, sip and when my family asked me if I was sipping, I fibbed and said "of course I am". Well, I wasn't and I landed in the hospital three times in the first month due to severe dehydration, which resulted in bladder and kidney infections. That is why I am such a strong advocate now about really getting on to people to make sure they get their fluids in, no matter how difficult it is, because it really is vital to your health that you do so.

Mine is yet again different --

Day of sleeve- nothing

First week -- clear liquids only (including Protein clear liquids, like Isopure, powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury chicken soup)

Weeks 2 & 3 - full liquids -- blended Soups. Protein shakes, yogurt, cottage cheese (why this counts as a full liquid, not sure, but its on the list), milk.

Weeks 4-5 - soft foods -- eggs, cottage cheese, deli meats, soft/canned fish, ground or canned chicken, refried Beans, veggies soft enough to mash with fork, cheese. (I will be in heaven come wednesday....LOL), tablespoon or so of fruit.< /p>

Weeks 6 on -- regular diet, no breads or Pasta, careful about tough meats or fibrous veggies, limit starchy veggies to 2-4 tablespoons per week.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
