I had surgery on Thursday morning and my doctor has me on liquids that will go through a strainer for four weeks.

For me, each stage was scheduled for 1 week. But Frankensleeve was kinda cranky and I stayed at the soft foods stage for months. At the 4 week mark, I still wasn't able to eat more than a teaspoon of any full food without LOTS of complaining from Frankensleeve.

So I just stayed on soft foods, and every few days, tried a teaspoon full of some new food till Frankie gave me the all clear signal. B)

My stages were:

4 weeks full liquids

4 weeks purees

4 months soft foods

Each practice has their own rules. You should get detailed instructions for your plan from your dietician, bariatric nurse, or surgeon.

I do have a meal plan

I am calling my doctor tomorrow because the full liquids aren't keeping me from feeling hungry and I am getting light headed all the time even though I am getting all my fluids. I attempted pureed Soup tonight for dinner and it is the first time in a week that I feel okay and not light headed. I was just wondering if there are other options out there or is it the same thing for everyone set in stone type moment.

That is mine too. Did you have any problems during the full liquids and getting light headed and just feeling really weak all the time?

We don't have an only liquid stage, it's straight on to liquids and puree so a Protein Shake and yogurt, apple sauce, no lump Soup etc for the first 3 weeks, then on to for a few weeks mushy/soft foods like mash potato etc then trying out normal but not tough things like steak etc foods as stomach tolerates.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
