My surgery is the day after yours. Good luck to us both! Here is what I am allowed the first week after surgery - but remember every surgery/surgeon may be different and require different things:

  • Priority #1: 64+ ounces of Water a day.
  • Priority #2: 60+ grams of Protein a day, using liquids like pre-made Protein shakes (>15gm Protein, <5gm fat, <5gm sugar per serving). Main ingredient must be whey, soy, casein, milk, hemp, or albumin (egg) protein. Cheapest source is "Double Protein Milk" which is 1 cup low fat milk + ⅓ cup nonfat dry milk/powdered milk.
  • Week 1: pureed liquid diet - high protein, sugar free, low fat. Sip on liquids, food should be the consistency of applesauce or even runnier. No fizzy drinks. For example:
    • Protein:
      • shakes or double-protein milk
      • pureed fish, seafood, poultry, meat
      • pureed eggs, egg substitute
      • pureed cottage cheese, yogurt (no sugar),
      • cocoa (sf)
      • pureed beans/lentils, pureed/strained black bean Soup
      • strained low fat cream soup
    • Vegetables and fruits:
      • No raw or uncooked vegetables or fruits
      • Baby food "Stage 1"
      • Pureed water-packed fruit or cooked vegetables
      • V-8 or Tomato juice as long as NO sugar (i.e. V-8 Splash may have sugar)
      • fruit juice <½ cup per day
    • Starches
      • Cooked strained Cereal like baby food
      • Mashed sweet or white potatoes - can add yogurt or milk to make them more mushy
    • Soup mixed with Protein powder
    • sugar-free popsicles

Now please keep in mind that I have not had my surgery yet either! A lot of sleevers swear by the sugar free popsicles, and they count as Fluid by my doctor. And some people say Water is hard to swallow unless you add Mia Drops.

Good luck!
