Ok, I was sleeved on June 15. I just started "full liquids" this Tuesday. Now I didn't seem confused about the post-op diet when they went over it with me in the hospital, but now I am! I know they gave us a specific list, or meal plan rather, but I thought it was more just a guide for the types of food we should be eating. So I'm curious, at day 21 post-op can we start having really mushy tuna salad, refried Beans w/ cheese, noodless-lasagna etc?? Like mushy food? I know it says Soups with the chunks in it and watermelon, shouldn't these other things be ok? I'm not getting enough calories/ Protein on just soup! Please let me know how you all are going about it. Also at day 40 post-op do we start solids?

I justs used it as a guideline, I experimented a bit, at 21 days I could eat most any soft foods in very small amounts. you are not going to be able to get anywhere near the nourishment you need from just food yet. I could only handle about 2oz of straight protien at a time.

I started eating most solids at about 3-4 weeks. I don't do much of anything really hard mostly because everything I find really hard is not good for me.

I have contacted her for a bunch of things actually (I had a few complications right when I returned home), and she was great! :) I just thought I would see what other patients are doing because even as direct as the post-op menu is its still kinda vague lol

Based on the list that i received from DR. Ponce.... at 21 days we can start eating tuna salad, egg salad, more Soups but now we can add salty crackers, yogurt, fruit such as pear, watermelon, melon.... It also says that we can start eating chicken...

... I ask about (lettuce) and he said that he recommends to wait at least 30 days....

I hope this helps..

Dr Ponce's diet sort of sucks. Way too much sugar in the fruit and juices and not enough Protein. I followed his stages ( basically you are free to pretty much try anything after day 30 if I remember right) in terms of puree and soft etc. But didn't follow the guide in terms of what to eat.

I can't say I disagree, I would recomend that anybody having surgery in Mexico get a NUT close to home that is familiar with WLS & the bodies needs afterward. I am a Ponce patient & I am very happy with my results, but I pretty much have created my own diet plan using his diet sheets as a guide and experimenting with other things. I was very concerned about protien because I was a wrestler earlier in life & I wanted to preserve as much muscle mass as I could

I have to agree that the post surgery diet information was pretty lacking for me. I was sleeved by Dr Kelly and Trish was my coordinator. I googled post sleeve diet and found a few great guides from some US bariatric centers.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
