Today I'm two weeks post op so I started Vitamins. Keep in mind, I've had nothing but liquids for 3 weeks... Anyway, I plunked a Gummy Vitamin and a viactive Calcium chew in my mouth, chewed a couple of times and swallowed.

DUMB DUMB DUMB

I called my Dr and they advised me to drink hot lemon Water and all should dissolve and pass through soon. This is so uncomfortable and I was panicky so I had a hard time breathing. Has anyone else done something dumb and lived to tell about it??

@@AprilHansen Yes I've done many dumb things and here I am still living. Glad all is well, and thank you. Now I know not to do this post op. Do you have liquid Vitamins you can use for awhile?

No but I have some nasty chewable tablets I can use for now. These things are taking forever to dissolve. I'll never do that again.

I find that if I suck on the gummies for a while they get softer and mushier, then I chew, chew, chew. So far, not a problem. Thanks for the heads-up. Hope your feeling better

        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.
