About 1/8 of a cup of ground beef or scrambled egg. About 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt. I'm 3 months out, and have complications.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I really hope you feel better soon.

What kind of complications do you have?- if you're comfortable talking about them.

I don't want to alarm any newbies, so that's why I didnt specify, but at 3 weeks out I developed a severe stricture between my intestines and pouch which prevented me from transitioning to soft foods. I also have marginal ulcers. I am having my 5th endoscopy with dilation on Friday. I'm hoping two more rounds will do the trick.

That's about right. I'm 4 1/2 months out and can still only eat 2-3 of solid Protein foods. Greek yoghurt with Protein Powder mixed in is my go-to slider. I can handle the meat if it is in Soup, so I do that regularly as well. I mix protein powder into the soup, also. Calf liver is the easiest actual meat for me - it is soft and goes down easily, as well as providing a lot of Iron. I buy it in very thin, 4 oz frozen slices from Spouts. I cut it in half so I have a 2 oz piece. I let it drain on paper towels after thawing. Then coat it very thinly with seasoned gluten free flour. Then into a hot skillet with some olive oil and onions.

I'm 11 months out and can eat up to a cup of certain foods, especially fruits and veggies. But like yesterday for lunch I had 1/3 cup of tuna salad on a single slice of sprouted grain bread and couldn't finish it. I can only eat about 2 ounces of meat like grilled chicken or steak.

Definitely not all foods are equal, I'm more like Briswife although of longer duration. Usually 2-3 oz with occasional up to a 1/3. cup. I heat up 1/2 cup, eat what I can and pitch the rest. Try to make it contain a Protein so7rch tempered with soft veggie. Several Protein Shakes enhanced with Miralax, and sip those danged fluids, take my full slate of vitam8nscand minerals. Since my Baratric people no longer contact me spontaneouslyn I must be on Autopilot. If they don't like the point I am at in August, it will be their fault, I feel the last time I reached out I was rebuffed in a nasty manner so Flup those 2 Nurse- practionerspractioners, there were people who did have my interests at ❤ but not Frick and Frack, the nasty little demons. I occasionally,forgive but I will never forget, it still stings when I think of it!

Hi Everyone,
I had surgery on 1/3/20, and I am now 6 weeks post op. I started solid food this week. I can easily eat 4 oz. So my question is should I have 4 oz of Protein (fish) or 2 oz of protein and 2 oz of veggies?

thats a really good question I would suggest 2/2 Because You Need Protien but need your veggies too

Definitely get in the veggies it will keep you regular!!! The more natural you can keep things, you should. Being dependent on Miralax is stressful!!!!
