I didn't eat any fruit at that point after surgery. I had no room after I ate my Protein.

I put some watermelon in my blender & drank it. It was delicious, but man, oh man! About a half hour later it EXPLODED out my butt! YIKES!

2.5 months post surgery anybody eat watermelon?
Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

Came on here to ask the exact same question. I dieted hard core about 6 years ago and lost over 80 pounds and during this time I ate a lot of watermelon. Helped keep my bowels moving (sorry, tmi) and the scale moved down every day. I am a month and a half out and I can't use the bathroom at all, and have tried everything. I'm thinking to try and eat watermelon and wanted some input from anyone who has experienced positive results from eating watermelon.

*Bursts In* Am I Late? No, cool 😂

I've noticed that whenever I ate a lot of watermelon, as opposed to other fruit, I lost more weight. Maybe its all the Water and Fiber for relatively low calories or that it also kept me very regular (also TMI)

I didn't start eating it until maybe 6 months post op. Ask your Team about it.

I'm onto you now NancyLF and fellow July surgery sibling!!! You've been giving yourself watermelon enemas with a different 'entry point'!! LOL, all in good fun I hope you know. I know you have worked hard and had awesome weight loss results but as soon as I read what you posted...I grinned and thought 'aha, there is her secret'! ;)

I love having ppl I can joke/tease with ;)

I'm actually grateful to OP for bringing this up. I ADORE watermelon but with a hissy-fit throwing pouch..there just is no way I'm going near it unless I'm SO constipated and in pain..that I decide that an 'explosion' would be an acceptable exchange..LOL

This is just one of the many things I like about reading what you post...love your sense of humor!

You also have now somewhat countered Nancy's back end explosion although you did put 6 month caveat in there which seems reasonable to me. There are so many things we have to learn out of trial and error and if there are things in the 'probably don't try until after 6 months'...I'm planning to do just that... WAIT 6 months.

Ah man, no watermelon on the cruise ship...oh Lord, I would hate to have an experience like Nancy's on a cruise ship. There will be other fruit that would be safer to try at that point if I haven't already.

Am trying to figure out what fruit might be easiest with a picky pouch to try in the pureed week...strawberries? bananas? pears? peaches? I guess sometimes we just have to try?

❤Thanks ❤

I waited so long because my Team didnt have it on my approved list so I never considered it and I had my original surgery in November so no good melon readily available

I had peaches and strawberries earlier but I'll tell you i usually didn't lose much or s3my when i had fruit often, except watermelon

I had watermelon around 6 weeks with no problem and it was delicious. Only about 2 chunks if I remember correctly

Nice, did it affect your weight loss at all? Did it help? Did it make you have a stall? My body did really well with watermelon pre surgery, but reading everyone's opinions on it on here makes me worried and has me thinking I shouldn't have it. I am exactly 6 weeks out. I feel like it wouldn't hurt to try?

I'm still post-op and just given go ahead to pureed stage and after an issue I had last night, I will probably wait days before I add any fruit in which will have to be pureed of course.

I did check out of curiosity what fruits are specifically named for this stage (by my dr's office) and it lists the following (I realize you are 6 wks out though). The foods listed on the pureed/soft foods are the same, I guess during our pureed stage we are just simply to do that..puree the food:

Skinless Fruit (¼ cup): apple, plums, apricot, peach, banana, grapes, kiwi, strawberries,blueberries, raspberries, papaya, mango

I just realized that I don't have a specific number of weeks to do puree vs soft foods - the heading just says Weeks 4-6. How did I not notice that sooner. It makes sense to me now...

It didn't affect anything for me and at the time it was in season. My Bariatric team didn't agree with the keto and wanted us to have veggies and fruits in our diets, they said keto would mess with our metabolism later on when we did eat those things later. Everyone has different views I chose to go with the Drs. and nutritionist for my plan.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
