At my first cook out since my surgery three weeks ago.. It's so hard wanting all the delicious foods cooked on the grill.. I guess I'm mourning the old way of eating :-/ I'm just sitting here watching everybody eat.. I know it will be easier soon but this is really really hard..

I haven't had surgery yet, but from what I read on this site it sounds like it gets easier by the week, and u will be able to eat small amts. Of a lot if the things u r missing. I'm on pre op diet (before pre op liquid phase). Good luck!

Hang in there hun, I'm sure it will get better. Just try to remember to keep your eyes on the prize! Take it one minute (and sometimes second) at a time. I know I'm not sleeved yet but I'm doing a pre-op diet that eliminates all of my favorite foods..I've been doing it for 3 1/2 weeks and have 2 1/2 weeks left 'til surgery. Try not to get discouraged, just remember this is short term sacrifice for long term gain! Take some deep breaths, go for a walk, listen to some music or relax and write all your thoughts in a journal. Sending you hugs, thoughts and prayers. <3

It does get better. What I do when I go to a cookout is take some shrimps on a skewer. It's Awsome source of Protein and goes down super easy. It's also something that you can play with.

I was 4 weeks out and still on full liquid diet and I went to a cook out on 4th of July. My husband ate and ate and ate and then....piled three large Desserts on his plate and ate some more and drank a beer.

There's always next 4th of July. It gets better. I did 5 weeks full liquid, plus the two week - preop (Only shakes!) so I get you, it sucks but you have to let go and stay strong.

It's worth it in the end.

        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.
