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.

      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
