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?

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.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
