First thing you ate when you were cleared for normal food



Recommended Posts

Last night I had 1/4 wrapless taco, Precious Pouch was so astonished she forgot to puke. Maybe Power to the Plump Princess and I will be on a roll ! Might sneak a little,more into today, made with finely ground lean meat fr9m my local good meat market, IGA, Wal-Mart and unless I buy Angus at my local Krogers,,, it regurgitates also. I know I I'm usually am hurting for Protein, that why shakes and I are still steady- dating. Finally found a line that doesn't make me grimace badly.

Mine was steak I believe. It was amazing even if I was only able to eat like 3 bites.

I just had a sleeve gastrectomy on 5/9/19 and will have my first post-op appointment tomorrow (5/15/19). So far I have been on clear liquid diet of beef and chicken broth and sugar-free popsicles and jell-o cups.

I cant even imagine what I will eat first! Tbh, I’m kind of scared. Does one bite really fill you up? I was 6’ 2” 315 pounds at surgery, with a BMI of 39.5, now I am 6’ 2” 290 pounds.

I am more worried of eating something I love and having it not sit right in my stomach😱

Cottage cheese.

I measured out 1/4 cup (which at the time looked so tiny in the bowl) and was only able to eat about 2/3 of it, which shocked me.

It was the most delicious cottage cheese I’d ever had in my life...

I can't remember the first thing when I was cleared for any food. When I was cleared for pureed though I dragged my husband to the nearest Indian food restaurant. (My surgeon is very conservative with diet progression and I was on full liquids for 6 weeks) I was ready for something savory and spicy!

Simple plain food makes sense. Will keep all of your suggestions in mind. I love salmon and tuna.

My first eggs after my sleeve was glorious. Eggs after bypass made me vomit it was so disgusting. So weird how surgery changes our taste.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
