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!

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
