Not wanting to go to next phase



Recommended Posts

Hello All

I was cleared to move to the next phase of eating Thursday which is the "mushy" phase. I have been on full liquids for the past 4 weeks. I've been living on Protein Shakes, yogurts, and broth. I don't want to move on to the next phase. I am comfortable where I am. I like my menu and have no desire for anything else.

Am I an anomaly? Do I have to move on?

I'm one stage ahead of you and feel exactly the same way. It was uncomfortable going from liquid to puréed at first. I got really full and had a hard time getting liquids in because it would take hours to make room even after just 1-2 tbls of puréed. But I persevered and am now doing great. I'm fine with my food choices and getting all my Protein and liquid. I still do 1-2 shakes/day and really do like my Soups. I was cleared for soft foods yesterday but haven't ventured there yet. I guess it will happen one of these days. Good luck and just take it slow if that's what you want to do.

My experience was the same. My surgeon said many patients don't want to transition and he didn't make a big deal of it. When I felt I wanted to try something, I did. I was sleeved November 19, 2013 and still mostly drink shakes. You'll change at the right time for your body. Keep up your good work!

I was the same way. My nurses didnt blame me and said it was not a big deal.

I did what another poster said and took my time. If I wanted to try puree chicken I did..but stuck with the yogurts and shakes.

Now, 3 months post op, I have a tiny sleeve that doesn't allow for much. I like it that way too.

Thanks everyone! I feel much better. I'm sticking what I know. If I venture out, I venture out. So loving this sleeve. I can think about other stuff now besides plotting my next meal!

Exactly! That's the best part for me too. Although now I find myself forgetting to eat enough. I'm still totally ok with that too.

I'm so ready for my mushy phase! I can't stand full liquids another day! I want some yogurt or something!

Yogurt was on my full liquids. So strange how dr's differ.

By mid-week of the 2nd week of liquids I was losing my mind, so I welcomed the pureed stage - but I didn't like most Protein shakes and whey doesn't really agree with me. So I was crazy excited to have some different flavors, although I didn't push it and had 2 Premier chocolate shakes (the only shakes I can handle) per day, then my mushy food. Wait till you get to solids and feel like 2 bites is too much. :)

I'm sooo glad you posted this. I'm really happy with full liquid stage and I have been freaking out about going the next level. I've got a great routine and feeling awesome. And I'm sure it helps that I love my Protein Shakes.< /p>

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
