When Were You On Puree?



Recommended Posts

How long after surgery was it until you went to purée? I have a 3 week post op liquid diet. I am 13 days out and would really like to add just Greek yogurt into my diet. I need a new source of Protein, the shakes are starting to make me sick after 4 straight weeks of them.

You know Dr. Kim would break your arm for that !! :)

J/K.. same post-op as you. I found RTD Isopure zero (melon flavor) was good way to break up the shakes.

LOL that made my afternoon! It just drives me nuts seeing everyone in puree after 2 weeks while I get the honor of choking down Protein shakes and broccoli cheese Soup for another week! :angry: I won't cheat, just like to flirt with the idea!

Sorry my half my post didn't make it. Somewhere I was trying to say, after leaving the hospital I was on full liquids that included yogart and cream of wheat.

Not bragging, just saying, yogart seems to be okay.

I lost half of my post too...bizarre. Anyhoo, yogurt, greek or otherwise, was allowed during my full liquid phase (and mine lasted three weeks, one Clear Liquids, two full). I was having it along with the dreaded broc/cheese Soup LOL

Are you sure it's not allowed?

I'm sure, it's shakes and strained Soup only for another week. My book says I can have yogurt starting with puree. Its only 1 more week, but 5 weeks of broth and shakes is so boring! I don't feel hunger so its not a big deal, I just want new tastes.

I had a tablespoon of rice with my chicken tonight. I told DH it was heaven to just have another texture (brown rice by the way) with my Protein verses feeling like I have to eat a slab of meat every time I turn around so I totally get the need to just feel something different!

One more week :) Then you'll find out how disgusting greek yogurt tastes and want something else LOL Ok maybe that was just me. (it's good if it's in the frozen icecream form though!) But I won't tease you....

It's actually encouraging to hear someone elses doc is as strict as mine... After two weeks pre op of shakes and broth, I have been STILL on shakes and broth since surgery on 10/22... Today, I get to add egg drop Soup, but still no actual food. NEXT Monday, I get to start soft..... It IS hard tho to keep reading about all the folks who get to have scrambled egg and tuna on Week 2! I have not had actual food since Oct 7! Even w out surgery, I would have lost weight!

The good thing is guys that your docs are making sure you don't stress your new staple lines with foods that could cause damage. Yes I know that many others don't do that, but after what I went through, being ultra conservative sounds like the best kind of doctor to me!!!!!

I was at Dr Kim's office today. Told them I was having chicken Express for dinner (they didn't laugh?) Haha. One more week of these stupid shakes. Just one more week. (Missed u in the hallways of Baylor!) Glad to read you are doing well.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
