It is so hard not to cheat on the liquid diet. I am on day 5 and I am hungry. broth, Jello and popsicle are getting old along with the Protein Drinks. Anyone else having the same problem?

yes I am having a problem with it two and i called the doctor and asked him what was on his mind so he allowed me on can of Tomato Soup a day and that makes me feel better and the people at work think im sane again lol

I solved the problem perfectly myself. Every year, each sibling (five of us) go to my mother's house. We decide what we want for out birthday meal and she makes it and the whole family celebrates. My choice is always roast beef, mashed potatoes, peas and German chocolate or Angel cake for dessert. Yum.

But my birthday is April 12th and I was sleeved on March 5th. What to do? We solved it by having my birthday celebration before the surgery date.

It was beautiful. Presents, cake and the most succulent, rare roast beef I've ever had.

Win Win.

And I will be on solid foods when my real birthday arrives. I will probably Celebrate with a bite of mashed potatoes, Soup and a Protein Drink. LOL

Mine tends to use 36 and then oversew. But it also depends on the patient. I got 34 with oversew. There really isn't a big difference.

I'm on day 3 post-op. I'm still having a fair amount of pain in my stomach. It feels like I took a couple donkey kicks to the gut. Nothing some liquid Percocet doesn't take care of though. I'm doing lots of walking. I had a Protein Shake today, which was my first real calories since Sunday night. I am taking fluids pretty easily. So far today I have 30 oz of fluids and 30 grams of Protein down and it's only noon. I'm hoping to go back to work on Sunday. It's looking good so far!

Good luck to all those who are getting sleeved today!

        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.
