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!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
