Hello Everyone! I was sleeved on 1/25, so I will be one week out tomorrow! My food stages look like this (as per doctor and NUT)

STAGE ONE- Clear liquids

*Day of and Day after Surgery

STAGE TWO- Full liquids

*Day 3 until 2 week Post Op Appt

(Surgeon will clear)

STAGE THREE- Soft Foods including... deli meats, steamed fished, eggs, Beans, melted cheese, dry toast, crackers, tuna, yogurt...

*2 weeks post op- 2 month post op Appt

My question is...

Has anyone else had similar stages; time wise? I am happy to be able to start eating way more stuff next week, but I see most people post about being on Full liquid/purees for 4 weeks. Has anyone else started soft foods at 2 weeks post op?

It's always interesting to see the differences. I was Clear Liquids for surgery day plus the next 3 days then full liquids for 3 weeks then on to soft foods for 3 more weeks and then we discuss more at my next appointment.

I was given a day by day meal plan for the first 3 months. I had back off and focus more on the intake of fluids I was dehydrated and needed some IV fluids. I was concentrating on getting my Protein but by doing that I became severely dehydrated. Much better now, but if you are not urinating every few hours be careful it sneaks up on you.

I had soft tuna before I left hospital- you will be fine just take it slow - start with 2 oz. I am 2 months out and doing great with all foods.

Your stages look very like the ones I have from my surgeon.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
