Jenn - How long will you be on liquids? Are you on at least pureed food too? I was sleeved on the 18th and I go see my Doc 1 week post op tomorrow. I am hoping he tells me I get at least pureed foods back...I am ready for food of any sort. Thanks

I was sleeved on the 13th and am on pureed foods. I was so ready by day 11 to have something other than Protein Shakes and Soup? But, I had a poached egg today and yesterday I had super soft mac'n cheese. I was so appreciative of real food. I am not sure that I really understand mushies though. Is mushies, just anything soft all mushed up with a fork?

Hi, July 18th was my new birthday... I am on full liquids until next Wed. Then I will start 2 weeks of pureed foods. What my Doc says is "soft foods" : grilled /baked fish, chicken salad - with lite mayo, tuna, egg salad, finely chopped ground beef, thinly sliced turkey or chicken, refried Beans with mozzarella, <God, I'm getting hungry> canned fruit drained, well cooked non-gassey veg: green Beans, squash,carrots,zuccini, spinach. oatmeal, small amounts of potaoes without skin. well cooked whole grains, brown rice and Pasta.

Avoid Spicy, skins from fruits and vegs, any raw fruit or veg.

Hope this helps!

Hi. My surgery was July 11th. I'm not losing weight as fast as some are, but I'm losing, so I'm happy! I've lost 12 lbs. since surgery. I'm still on pureed foods until next week. My doctor is very conservative about progressing to the next stage. I'm looking forward to my first bite of "real food", but this isn't as bad as I thought it would be. At least it doesn't take very much to fill me up now. It amazes me how one scrambled egg totally fills me up. This is going to be a long journey and I'm so glad for this web site and support group to help keep me going.

Noel - I get tired really easy and I seem to keep a Headache. Not at all sure about the headache other than no diet pepsi - no monster mean bean..lol maybe addicted to the caffeine ?

I find I am not at all interested in the puree, I just choose to go without. I am mostly drinking 2 weeks out, I had a small bite of a soft fried egg and some soups.. I did spend the day with my sister and best friend and boy was I dead on my feet that ***ht, my stitches were leaking and hurting and i was just drained. So I do think we need as much rest as we feel we need. I am sleeping better than I have ever slept in my entire life and getting up bright and early every morning.. I have been a ***ht owl since birth so that is a major change

I am now 15 days out. Suture tapes are beginning to come off and not as sore anymore - I never had wound leakage but I hear that it is normal to have some. I have been walking 1 hour on a treadmill daily since this past Monday and it REALLY helps. I am kind of pushing the boundaries of types of foods but not amounts. I had 2 hard boiled eggs for Breakfast and it was a little too much. My whole day is filled with making sure I consume enought protien and liquids. I am down 17lbs. Thought it would be faster but it continues going the right way so no complaining. Still getting used to not drinking when I eat. I have forgotten and taken a sip during a meal.....man that hurts! Also, get those Vitamins and minerals in. I find if I forget my B's I feel a little tired. Rock on sleevers!

Hey ya'll. I know I'm late. But I was sleeved on July 31st at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, GA. I've been battling m.o. for a few years now and I was really excited about getting sleeved. However, I had a gallbladder removal at the same time and its really taking the life out of me.

Isn't there a July Sleevers Facebook Group?

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
