Hello everybody.
I’ve just had my surgery recently (19 April). So I am on week one. I am finding it hard to eat. While I was hospitalized they gave me broth and apple sauce. Once I started walking they gave me sort of liquidy mashed food. Like I had a coucous cream. I was operated in France and after watching YouTube videos, I figured that duets varied from hospitals and countries.

However during this week, due to how I was fed in the hospital I was confused on how to eat. So I am
going through apple sauces, yoghurt adding Protein Powder to them. And also having Soups.

My question is has anyone struggled with week one in the same fashion.

My surgeon has me on a full liquid diet for 3 weeks ( this is a bit longer than most). Full liquids mean watery Soups, broths, watery Protein Drinks, milk and that is about it. I am trying to get at least 45grams of Protein a day and adding unflavored protein to soups or broths that have less protein.

I was on a full liquid diet for 3 weeks post-op, then soft mush pureed foods for two weeks, then finally transitioning to solid foods

I wasn't able to eat at all during week one and some of week two - I drank Protein Shakes and Protein drinks to get my protein and fluids in, and that was it. Later in week two, I was able to add yogurt, pudding and plain Soups. I think it's normal.

That’s really weird, I was on full liquid diet for 2 weeks post op and after that I was able to slowly introduce pureed or mashed food. I am just entering week 4 and can add solids now. When you say your finding it hard to eat what do you mean?

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
