Lunch Meeting 1 week Post Op



Recommended Posts

So I went back to work one-week post-op. I had my first business lunch today and ordered Brazino and was able to eat 1/2 of the filet (3 ounces) and just asked for the rest to go. I was so stuffed and felt I was actively engaging in conversation, and I looked around me, and the others had cleared their entire plates or fish, spinach, and veggies.!!!! I was super proud of myself. I had green tea before the start of the meal and didn't drink the rest of the meeting. This was such a massive concern for me as I have so many eating situations. One meal at a time :)

What phase are you in your diet ? (1 week post revision, right?)

Did your team speed up your diet progress?

yes, all the patients (revision or traditional RNY or even gastric sleeve) are discharged on stage 2 diets (soft mushy). Prior to leaving the hospital, we all received tuna salad. This stage for us also includes soft white fish.

That's dangerous my dr said no mush until 3-4weeks out. Can't even sip Water until day after surgery.

Yes- my hospital is a center or bariatric excellence. After passing the upper GI with the barium study all patients are advanced in their diet. That is when we are also able to sip Water and have the diets advanced. So clinically it's safe. It is just a difference in clinical practice. So we are all advanced. I am doing amazing on it.

Good for you. Continue to follow your doctors advice. Everyone's doctor is different and if you feel okay, I assume it's working the way they planned. My surgery is August 27th and my team has me going through all stages starting with Clear Liquids. Can't wait to cross over with you all! Sending healing vibes your way love ; )
