Thanks everyone! I was thinking my surgeon said soft foods at 30 days. Really though I don't know what to do for that that's actually good for me. I guess Soup. chicken does not feel good. Wish I had a recipe book.

You can have canned tuna with fat free mayo, avocados, scrambled eggs, baked, broiled or grilled fish, and any meat that has been cooked all day in the crockpot when you are at the soft food stage.

I still on full liquids but I bought a book (Amazon/Kindle) called Weight Loss Surgery Cookbook. It has great ideas and recipes for each stage. I think it's awesome because I'm not that creative and really wanted some input for puréed and soft foods.

Surgery date 6/16

S/W 223

C/W 204

I have been in a stall for about a week now. I returned to work on the 30th and it was hard. Still very tired and week, but I think that is from not getting my 60 oz of Fluid or all of my Protein. Up until a week ago it hurt to drink...much better now. Started on blended foods 3 days ago and I follow this stage for one week before moving to soft foods for one week. My stomach does not seem to like anything I eat except broth but I tolerate it. Most if my pain subsided within 1 1/2 weeks and then the left sided pain returned three days ago. Strange. Overall, I'm glad that I did this but I am definitely ready for my body to feel normal.

Thanks for sharing.. I am almost 14 days post op (6/24).. and my biggest concern is the pain on the left side..feels like a pulled muscle.. hard for me to sit up, bend and its quite frustrating.. I was told to put hot/cold compresses muscle rub but its not doing much.. I have to go back to work Monday and Im worried b/c its going to be long hours.. I just want this pain to subside..

but I wish you the best in a quick recovery and getting back into a normal routine!

Thanks sma. My pain feels the same as yours but I guess time will heal us. Thanks for the reply and I wish you a quick recovery as well. I visit the doctor next week and will ask about the pain. If I learn anything new, I will share it.

By 30 days you will feel almost normal. I was 30 days yesterday and I can get out of bed easily, walk without discomfort and even sneeze and laugh hard! Hang in there. Still get tired quicker than usual but I know that will pass soon.

Omg so funny you mention sneezing and laughing.. When I sneeze is when I feel the most pain and just try and apply pressure on my left side when I feel a sneeze coming on. yesterday I had to tell my husband to stop making me laugh too!! Thanks for the insight though!

I just ordered the book. I can use help with recipes.

Hello fellow June sleevers! (Finally...my first post after over a year of lurking!)

HW 252

CW 217

Surgery on 6/23. I have only 2 complaints:

1) I'm tired of Soup

2) My largest incision ( right above my belly button ) still hurts me all day long. Laughing, sneezing, coughing, picking something up off the floor, etc. has me in agony. I can't sleep through the night without waking up with pain. I'm all out of the liquid pain meds. I can't find any liquid Tylenol or equivalent for adults anywhere. Anyone else having similar issues?

I found liquid Tylenol for adults at Wal Mart and Walgreens. Everything you're describing is common. Hang in there! At 30 days it's a LOT better.

I'm so jealous. I don't go to semi-solid until Wed. I tried to eat some soft fish and scalloped potatoes on Fri and promptly threw them up in the Whole Foods parking lot no less - embarrassing! Although at least I threw up in a bag. So now I got the message and am just eating puréed.

LOL! I hear ya! It is difficult knowing when the last safe bite is! I've gurgled up more than once. (Gross!) Now I just get my 1/4 c measuring cup, fill it up and dump it in my bowl.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
