I think i’ve been doing the liquid stage all wrong!!!!!



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...

Yeah Matt Z that is what i was told also. Has to do with the extensive staple line sleevers have.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

        I am slowly, s-l-o-w-l-y, learning in my old age that you don't always have to do everything for everyone else and that it is ok to take care of your own needs first. $260 is a lot to spend for a family of 4 to eat without any leftovers, especially when one person can barely eat anything. Maybe next year you can do the buffet, or maybe your sister and her family can go out to a buffet, and you and your kids can have dinner, and then everyone meets up later for board games and football or something. Focus on some fun post-meal activities. I'm skipping Thanksgiving this year because I am on liquids, which means my mom won't attend either (her choice, she doesn't want to go without me). She is ok with that, but I feel guilty about ruining her holiday. I made my peace with it because I realized that skipping this one Thanksgiving to have surgery earlier this month means that I will hopefully be healthier, live longer and have more Thanksgivings in my future.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
