Hello, I’m 3 Weeks Post Op today and I was wondering if anyone knows if watermelon is ok to eat? I would really like a small piece I am on puréed stage.

You could ask your nutritionist.

I, personally, ate watermelon at 3 weeks with no issues.

But different people have different plans and recommendations (and tolerances)...so it might be best to ask.

Just be careful of sugar content. A cup of watermelon is 9 g of sugar for reference

Eat all the watermelon you want... it's fruit.... enjoy.....think I might go have some as well.....that sugar from watermelon isn't going to make or break anything....it's natural sugar...

It's not allowed on our plan till pretty far out, once we have reached goal. Then we can have 1 fruit per day, after Protein and veggies. I can't eat it, as it causes dumping.

All I’m saying is be careful. fruit has a lot of sugar and on my plan (and most) should be eaten in small amounts. My plan says 1/2 piece of fruit a day max.

Natural sugar has its issues too with surgery sugar limits

Just my opinion

I was eating watermelon at about 7-8 weeks out. I know some say watch the sugar content, but watermelon and cantelope are actually very good nutritional fruits with antioxidants. I did find that because it really breaks down after thoroughly chewing it that you do eat a little more of it then you think

I ate watermelon about 2-3 months post op. I would have had it sooner, but it wasn't in season when I had my surgery. I love cantaloupe as well, and ate that as soon as I was cleared for fruits. It's a good one because it doesn't have seeds. Just watch the amount you are eating, for me, I could practically binge on some cantaloupe. It's almost a slider food for me. I always measure out my portion and put the rest away.

My wife is 4 weeks out and she loves watermelon. It hasn't hurt her yet.

It's mostly Water so I think it would help towards the Fluid goal too.

Hello, yes I am 4 weeks out and seen my dietician she recommended for me to start eating fruits. She told me watermelon is a great fruit to start on because it’s really easy to eat and it’s pretty much purée in your mouth. I was so happy to hear because i too love watermelon. I had about 5oz yesterday (about 4-5) pieces and It went down regularly like before the surgery. Enjoy!

      Donated about 80 Shirts that are too large on me. 
       
      Pretty much decreased my wardrobe by 80% and have only a few items. 
      Guess I'll be doing laundry more.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
