My fav to this day and I started it in purées my 2nd week post op (I was sleeved on 12/12/19) is I put refried Beans in a bowl, add ground beef (I puréed this that 2nd week) and then add salsa and cheese. Microwave it and bam! Super easy. I’m 5 weeks out now and I still make it all the time. I’ve even added olives, used turkey meat instead of ground beef.. I like it cuz it’s quick and a lot of protein!!

Surgery date was 1/13. I am on carnation Breakfast essentials for this week.Also broth, juices Jello etc.Having a hard time getting them down.Anyone else have this problem?
I had surgery on the 8th and jello is really the only thing that still hurts going down....i suppose maybe I'm not chewing it enough but it's the only time when I really still get that sternum pain like gas is trying to escape.... sugar free popsicles have been my favorite treat lol

Kinda hard to chew Jello.Everything I eat or drink hurts in the sternum.I haven't been able to find sugar free pops.I have friends that have found them and by the time I get there they must have run out.I had checked way before I had surgery and can't find them.I'll have to keep trying.

Me, too - gave away my sugar free jello because it causes pain (am six weeks out.) But I'm only taking in 850-950 calories a day so it's no longer needed, thank goodness. It did help me with weight loss prior to surgery, though.

Hey everyone I had The sleeve done January 9 2020 An Hw 276 Sw 262 Cw 253 An I haven’t lost any more weight I’m so frustrated 😤 The only thing I notice was my sides has went in on my stomach and my face look skinny. Not only that I can drink a whole water bottle and it doesn’t hurt . My doctor said it was ok but I don’t think that’s normal. I do everything I suppose to I look at myself in the mirror and it makes me regret this 😞

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.
