Patience is key. I'm two weeks out. Last week I was lamenting not being able to have Water (it wasn't settling well so I was mostly hydrating with broth, G2 and sf Popsicles. Then I was able to have room temp water, a victory. And starting last night I was able to have cold water! I was silly to get hung up on it and think I'd never be able to have it again!

Long story short - everyday gets better! Be patient and kind to yourself. You'll get better and better each day that passes.

Also, walk, walk, walk as soon as possible after surgery as much as possible.

Ditto this! I had surgery Monday. Stay flexible and patient. Be kind to yourself. Every day HAS gotten better.

Today is my first full day home from the hospital and I'm finally on track to get all my fluids and Protein, a victory for me!

I'd never had surgery and was surprised both by how miserable I was and how quickly I could improve.

Make sure you have help at home. My dad is taking care of me and was scheduled to leave today, but he's staying cause I need him longer. He helps take care of my dogs, picks things up from the floor, brings me things when all I can bear to do is lay down, all little but frequent needs.

Also, it has helped me to sip little bits of my protein at a time and alternate with water. Before I tried to have too much protein at once and had greater GI distress.

And it's true, walking in the hospital always made me feel better.

I had my surgery on the 8th of September. I'm looking for someone I could chat with and compare notes. I had the sleeve done.

        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.
