What fruits can you eat and how soon?



Recommended Posts

You are still very early for raw fruit. I had a horrible strawberry incident at 2 months. I'm thinking applesauce and bananas at one month, but I'd check with your dr first. Took me a long time to be able to tolerate fresh fruit, but everyone is different.

Maybe try Tramadol? You'll need a prescription for it.

I started eating fruits after 6 weeks. I usually eat two fruits a day. I put fruits in my shake which includes:

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, non fat

1 cup of lactose free skim milk

1/2 banana

1/2 cup pineapple, in its own juice.. No sugar or fructose added

1/8th t . vanilla flavoring

1 sweet in low

Little crushed ice if fruits are not frozen.

It takes me about 2 hours to slowly sip my shake. I love it. You can put strawberry, blueberries, mango, canned peaches without added sugar.,

Cantaloupe. Or any combinations u like. I only eat two servings of fruited day.

I didn't try fruit until I was 3 months post sleeve and then it was applesauce. Since I try to eat Protein first, veggies second, fruit third, I never really eat fruit at my one meal a day. (unless I eat a salad and have raisins or craisins on the salad) Actually the only time I really eat fruit is when I add it to a shake for Breakfast so it is blended well (less risk of fibrous products getting stuck in my tummy)

I add melon to the apple melon Isopure powder. I have added mango nectar to the mango peach Isopure powder shakes. Of course the banana and strawberries in the strawberry is a standard. I have also found an apple spice Protein Shake that tastes like an apple pie and have added applesauce to this one (plus extra cinnamon for flavor) I have added all kinds of fruit to a vanilla shake (blueberries and raspberries are my favorite with vanilla)

I had avoided the citrus till last week. I had 1/4 of an orange for the first time and did not have any problems.

I had applesauce in week three, for which I was most happy! I didn't attempt actual raw fruit until week 8 or so.

My doctor said apples, pears and berries; some other fruits have too much sugar, but (admittedly) I had some pineapple recently, and a piece or two of honeydew melon. Can't do much, though; watching the sugar.

I love strawberries, had some this week. But they seemed to get stuck because I wolfed them down. Didn't chew them well enough.

Check with your doc's handout.

I was cleared to eat fruits at 4 weeks and haven't looked back! I eat apples (peeled) and halos. I have had blackberries, cantaloupe and honeydew. For me, fruit was my go to pre-op and I still looove them. I haven't tried grapes (because of the skin/sugar) or watermelon (because of the high sugar) Funny though I can't tolerate applesauce post-op. At my one month appointment I double checked with my doctor before I ran out and ate my very first apple and she said "absolutely"! I had already been making smoothies with fruit.

Doctors are so different with their food phases, and everyone is different with their tolerance, definitely check with the Dr. first.
