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!

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
