Is anyone else getting confused about phases.. I was told I could eat mushroom Soup at the hospital, but I read the papers and it says those ain't until phase 2.. I'm slowly switching into puree now. But I don't even really know what phase 2 fully allows..

Sleeved 6/5/18

There seems to be a variety of pre op / post op diet phases, best follow the one provided by your surgeon/nutritionist, which I assume is what you are referring to when you mention papers?

What exactly do the papers say, is there a clear progress through the stages? Giving examples of what can be eaten at each stage?

If you are unsure, you could probably attach a copy of papers to a post in on the forum, and some of the more experienced could help, or you could contact your surgeon/nutritionist for clear instructions, which is probably the way to go. If the instructions are unclear you will probably get a variety of answers here.

I could eat mushroom and all cream Soups. The key is to strain them after cooking to ensure you only eat the liquid no chunks.

My progression looked like this:

1. Clear Liquids (during hospital stay) which included popsicles, broth, diluted 100% juice, and Jello.

2. Full liquids (1 week) which included strained creamed Soups, Protein supplements, kefir, skim milk, ect.

3. Purred Foods (1 week)

4. Soft Foods (1 week)

5. Full Diet, minus all the things you should avoid for life.

My paperwork is the list of phases and what each one is allowed. And it came from my surgeon. And then at the hospital they allowed the soup but it wasn't on the list until phase 2.. I'll attach the phase 2 and phase 3 that I saved from the website they gave me

Sleeve patients always have an extra week of liquids because their staple line is larger, and more of an area to heal.

I got to have eggs last night and they worked out, just had some for lunch with my niece and nephew and they didn't sit well.. also noticing I'm not a fan of heat at the moment. Hopefully that will change.. and the 26th can't get here fast enough, I'm ready to go swimming hahaha

Nope, I had RNY. I hope that the heat wave breaks as well! We have heat index of 110 degrees yesterday. Doesn't matter how much you lose, 110 degrees sucks at any weight!

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. RNY is just a "nickname" of sorts.

Just like the sleeve is more properly on here Laproscopical Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy but most people say. sleeve or VSG. The y in Roux en Y. is because the 2 rerouted segments of the small intestines kind of resemble that letter. And sometimes we bypasses well technically I'm only a future one, call ourselves pouchers or kangaroos in defence to our rearrangement. That said, we all love each othet, no matter the rearrangement, we all are members in,the same Bariatric Scheme of things. Are you a little less confused?

I'm not confused about the surgeries, the phases get confusing. But thanks

I’m a sleever. My team recommended clear liquids for the 1st week plus coffee, all liquids for week 2, and if you are tolerating well you move onto the purée/mushy phase for the next 4 weeks. After that, if you are tolerating everything move to your forever foods.

They use this as a standard, but you see your surgeon and nutritionist at the 4 week mark to check all is ok and to check in on anything you’re curious about.

While my insurance paid most of the procedure, it’s a $4k our of pocket co payment as well. For this you get all follow up appointments with the surgeon, nutritionist and therapist covered for the first year. They do it this way so their patients aren’t discouraged, by cost, for any concerns you may have post. Surgery. They also offer a phone service if you can’t get an appointment quickly.

       Lunch time was my yummy dinner from last night. I made homemade turkey chili. I know, it's the middle of summer but I wanted something hardy and that was perfect with some sliced avocado & a tad of shredded Mexican cheese. YUM! I found the recipe that was titled "the best turkey chili recipe you will ever eat" and in fact, it was!
      My shake this afternoon is the Syntrax Nectar Kiwi Strawberry with a banana. I brought in my magic bullet blender to work since it's light and portable. I used water this time instead of the almond milk. Sipping it now at my desk, it's pretty good. I'd give this one a 5! The banana takes over and taste just like strawberry banana shake. Yum!
      Not quite sure what I am planning on tonight for dinner but since I had my main meal for lunch, it will consist of a dinner shake and a p.m. snack after (protein based of course- probably 2 hard boiled eggs.
       10 more days until surgery... I really hope my liver is teeny tiny from all of this!

      One week out and I am okay.  I am not in any pain and I still do not have gas.  I am feeling empty and no hunger.  I am getting my liquids down.  My doctors appointment is on Thursday.  The runs have slowed down to once a twice a day.  I am doing 30 mins of activity a day to the neuropathy in my legs  I want to try to do more there is nothing stopping me
      I do not feel anything emotion wise like happiness, second guessing, sadness, full of questions.  Some second thoughts as I am realizing the help of the surgery is changing your thought process.  I could eat but I can wash it out of my head. I wish I could do this with my legs.

      Checking in on this sunny Monday morning. For those who read my last update on Friday, I was having a funky week. I recharged the batteries. I spent a fun filled day a the pool yesterday and rode the water slide at least 10 times, yes... like a little kid! I made a work out date with a bestie for this evening. AND I officially, as of this morning, weigh two pounds less than my husband, and 9lbs away from ONEderland! It's amazing how quickly things can happen... I'm so blessed. So for now, its a good week. Love to all!
      OH and! My BMI has gone from 57 to 35.9  That's 21.1 difference. *mic drop*

      This weekend I found it difficult to write/journal anything with my dear soon to be 2 year old running around and keeping me busy. I have quite a few shakes to write about since Friday.
      Friday's continuation of lunch was the Syntrax Nectar Crystal Sky. I'd give this a 4. Reminded me of Kool-aid. Not too shabby and kept me full. 
      For dinner Friday I had my left overs of baked chicken, sauteed spinach with olive oil and garlic and steamed broccoli, potatoes and cauliflower. 
      For my pm snack, I had the Syntrax Nectar Wild Grape. I blended it with PB2. I should have just had it plain.  I think it would have tasted so much better. In my head  I figured it would have tasted like a pb and jam sandwich. Because of my experiment, I gave it a 2 and 1/2. LOL.
      Saturday morning I tried the Syntrax Nectar Cappuccino latte with pb2. Not bad. Some of these Syntrax latte's have that sweet after taste even though they say they are aspartame free. I have no idea what it is but I'm not a fan. The PB2 or banana kind of takes that away.
      Hubs took me to see a movie and my n-laws watched our son. I didn't think ahead so I grabbed a smoothie at the Jamba Juice to stay hydrated. I could have totally snuck in my own shake or drank water but I was tending to my son's needs ahead of mine. I need to learn to make more time for myself. I do have anxiety and this kicks in right before we leave to go out whether it's the family or just me and my hubs. My mother-n-law and father- n law are great with my son but sometimes they don't listen to instructions I give them and thus causes the anxiety to come out. Ugh. Anyway, back to it....
      So this Jamba Juice I had ordered was the PB Banana Protein and MAN did it have ALOT OF SUGAR IN IT. I should have made my own but I'm only human right....Yes, It was tasty but a medium size with 34g of protein, okay......58g carbs, 23g fat and ....eekk....49g of sugar .
      Not, the best choice. Again, I'm only human but I need to really research my nutrition info. before just looking up and seeing "oh protein, that's what I need, I'll take that, please" on the big board of what looks good.
      For dinner, I had a hoagie bowl from my local Wawa which was grilled chicken (all 3 stripes of it ) REALLY?!  packed with veggies and some honey mustard dressing. 
      Breakfast Sunday morning was Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Mousse. I swapped out water with almond milk and added 1/2 a banana. That was a 5 for sure! Very tasty!
      Lunch I tried the Syntrax Nectar Caribbean Cooler with almond milk and 1 banana. Tasted just like a daiquiri. So good. One of my favorites so far! 5!!!!
      Dinner I made turkey chili. Very good! High protein and so good!
      Breakfast this morning, I tried the Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Latte with 1 banana and almond milk. Bit of an after taste again. I need to find out what the hell that is. Again, all of these protein shakes are aspartame free yet, I have this horrible sugary, "sweet-n-lowy" kind of after taste. I give this one a 3.
