On my plan, that's Week 4. (Week 1: Clear liquids, Week 2: Full liquids, Week 3: Purees) Did your surgeon give you a week-by-week plan?

I'm one week post-op today, and food is the last thing on my mind. I get my 40 grams of Protein in through 2 powder/water shakes (1 sweet and 1 savory) and I just sip Water and Powerade the rest of the day. I guess I am just really lucky. (But it takes me 2 hours to drink the sweet Protein and 1 hour to drink the savory one. And the sipping water/powerade is an all day thing. All of that effort might have psychologically made me scared of food or something. Haha.)

As we see on here, all doctors plans differ. I really don't understand wanting to not take my doctors advice since I trusted him to perform major surgery on me. I waited 4 weeks for soft foods and survived and am doing well.

At least call your doctor's office to ask if you can move ahead. Popsicles help with the need to bite and chew.

I don't go to my doctors until October 11th, and I was sleeved on September 23rd. On my 8th day post op I broke down and had one egg scrambled with a tiny bit of milk in it. Just make sure you chew it really good and pace yourself. Eat half of you can and the other half later.

If having soft food at one week was so important to you, why didn't you choose one of those doctors to do your surgery? Why listen to any doctor at all, just conduct an internet poll when you want to make a medical decision.

Hi im 8 days post op and im dying to eat some food i know my doc said 2 weeks but I have seen different doctors recommend only 1 week

You can start soft foods when your surgeon allows you to have soft foods. In your case, that would be two weeks.

My week one was Clear Liquids. Week two was full liquids. Week three was soft foods and week four was soft mechanical, etc.
