At what point would you be able to eat it? I'm 2 weeks post op today. Down 11 lbs since surgery total lost is 29 lbs. :)

It's usually when you progress to full liquids. I am techinically allowed to eat it but our nutritionist advises against says it's still has too many carbs - I am suppose to eat only things that have 6 or less carbs but even the yogurt has 15 grams. I'm confused as heck about all this.

I'm onto puréed I'm not sure if that is full liquids. I would assume it is. I guess I could try a little but n c what happens. :)

Technically I can have it since I progressed to full liquids last week. I have not had it, out of fear that it will not sit right in my tummy. My 2 week follow up with the doc and nut is tomm. I am hoping the nut can provide me with a list of stages and foods. I feel like I am just existing on broth, Jello, popsicles, and Water. The Protein Drinks are the worst part, I barely get 25 grams in per day, if that. My nut is very easy going and allows any food after 2 weeks as long as you can tolerate it. I know every doc is different, but such a drastic inconsistency scares me! On the plus side, I'm basically pain free! It's getting better day by day...

Thank you. I work in the morning and won't have time to make an egg so I was gonna do cream of wheat. However I found this recipe for scrambled eggs in microwave and only takes 45 seconds :)

My nut said the same as yours. I can have any foods after two weeks as long as I can tolerate it. After reading all the posts here I am as confused as you. I just wanted you to know there was someone who got the same information as you.

Thanks Debi, I see all the posters with the same date of Surg, still on liquids! I just got home from my appt and here are examples of foods approved for me at 2.5 weeks out:

Shrimp cocktail, chili of any kind,meatballs,eggplant,chicken/tuna/crab salad, Tomato sauces and Soups, veggie burgers, peaches,bananas and canned fruits.

Kind of shocking, because from what I have read this sounds like the 6 week post op diet! Oh well, I will follow the instructions of my Doc and Nut. :-)

It sounds like you have my list of what I can have. I just hope this isn't the reason I'm having what seems to be, to me, slower weight loss. Again, if you have problems drop back to the liquid diet.< /p>

In all honesty, I am scared to death to move to this food phase! I had some mashed tuna, that I blended into a paste consistency, with no mayo and TMI, I was in pain doubled over vomiting and had diarrhea all last night. For lunch today, I tried a soft scrambled egg... Same reaction, I had to run to the potty! Ugh. I hope this gets better, as of now the only thing I can tolerate is liquid. Thanks for the encouragement and support. I appreciate it.

Cream of wheat settles my tummy and goes down wery well, I've had great luck with it as long as I thin it out with a little skim milk

Do you add anything to the cream of wheat for flavou?

Nope, just skim milk. I figure at this point I don't care about flavor, just trying to get some liquids in while trying to feel somewhat full. I guess if you need to you can add a packet of Splenda or something.
