Those all sounds sooooooooooooooooo good to me, I just had the sleeve on 5/13/2019 and I am on liquids... Follow up appointment on 5/23/2019 so then I hope to have eggs... That's all I'm thinking about right now is eggs... But, hey I'll take it...


I had my first follow-up yesterday (5/15/19) from a sleeve procedure on 5/9/19. I was on Clear Liquids for the first week, but was cleared to move to regular liquids for a week on Saturday (518/19). Doc won’t authorize eggs until two weeks after surgery at the earliest and then suggested I leave them a bit runny. I’m anxious and nervous to try eggs, and mashed potatoes lol.

I just finished it. I had a 1 egg omelet with a small amt of diced mushrooms and a little fat free cheese. Tasted delicious but took almost an hour to eat.

Fresh salmon sashimi. It’s so soft and buttery and delicious. Perfect!
Omg. Sashimi (my fave is tuna) has been my reward meal for the last couple of months now.
Every 3-4 weeks, hubs takes me out to my fave sushi joint and I order the tuna and a bowl of miso Soup.
I can only sip about 2-4 ounces of the soup and eat 2-3 pieces of the tuna, but it is divine and hubs gets to finish my plate for me.

I've been cleared for "stage 4" foods. Whole soft meats, semisoft cheese and increased variety of cooked veggies. I had a poached egg today for Breakfast and lean ham for lunch. Will try broccoli and cheese tonight.

Tomorrow I can start soft foods and I am going to try some soft poached salmon and peas, I think. I can't wait.

Doctor told me I could try some split pea Soup on Friday, I cheated and brought some to work for lunch today. Bad thing: it has small chunks of ham in it 😬 I’ve taken a few bites and my stomach has not yet revolted, I’m just making sure to eat slow and chew a lot.

Be careful with salmon. I’m 5 months out and it still makes me kinda queasy because of all the fat.

my Nut told me the same thing about Salmon. I am about to go into soft foods and she said Fish is ok, just avoid Salmon unless its caned.

      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

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      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.
