Recommended Posts

So....can you please tell me which phase cottage cheese and apple sauce falls in???

They gave it to me at the hospital the day after surgery so I assumed it was considered a full liquid item. I have been eating it ever since. Am I wrong??????

Also, how many people start their purée foods a few days early? I have two days to go and all I want is something new!!!

On my plan those would count as purees. But if your doctor was ok with the hospital diet, I'm sure you're fine.

Don’t panic about it. All doctors have different rules!

in general, it best to follow his plan but the plan’s main purpose is teaching you about eating, more than it is about your new tummy. I was on solid food (chicken, fish) before leaving hospital!

Thanks for all of your responses! It’s just so confusing sometimes and I don’t want to eat something that I’m not supposed to!

for the first week I was liquid only, but in the 2nd week I started to nibble on really soft things like scrambled egg and pureed stewed Tomato. it was fine.

I was under the impression (from my own surgery and lots of others) that bypass patients start purees the day they leave the hospital. Sleeves get stuck on liquids for a month after surgery (typically).

Man, I would have loved to start purees right away!!! I was instructed to have full liquids for two weeks which is thankfully over now!!!!!

Just highlights the continued variations in pre and post op diets... I was on purees for a month... it REALLY started to suck...

So true! I think the repetition of any foods become tiresome after a while. I’m still loving my purees right now but I’m only on day 3 so I’m sure it will start to suck any day now! Lol

It really depends on the clinic, I think...I had bypass this past Monday. I was told to do one week of Clear Liquids only, two weeks of full liquid diet, then two weeks of pureed foods, then at last solid foods five weeks in...

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
