Just finished 1st week of liquid diet



Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone my name is Chris and im 36, was wondering if you guys could shed some light, im noticing that ppl have different timelines in their post op diet phases. I just finished my 1 week of liquid diet phase and headed into moist and mushy diet on phase 2, i feel like some ppl had to stay on their phases of diets for 2 weeks each, any reason for that and should i do the same?

Every doctor is different, just follow what they tell you to.

Ha! That is the biggest understatement I have ever read on these boards!🤣 It's amazing that there is NO consensus on what these bariatric doctors recommend. Toodlerue is right--follow what your doctor recommends.

Stay on your plan but going to add to it a little-

That is a plan broad spectrum for all patients - YOU BODY WILL BE THE FINAL JUDGE AND JURY. You will see it all over this place do not rush it, let you body heal and tell you what it wants to do. Take it slow, the longer and slower you transition the easier it will be on the healing and body.

To this day i prefer Soups and liquids over hard food, just easier to get down and deal with.

Welcome to the group and ask away we have all been there and others before us helped us so we are paying it forward

Each doctor has slightly different guidelines. Do whatever your doctor told you to do.

Doctors' programs and, as AJ noted, patients as well, vary widely on this based upon surgeons' experiences and philosophies and patients individual quirks. Some docs may have had a difficult patient once, so they treat all of their patients as if they, too, will be difficult while others tailor things more specifically to patients' needs. Generally, a week in each phase works well for most, with some needing more time while others could progress more rapidly. Our program had us on mushies and soft things in the hospital - if we could tolerate them (some could, some couldn't) but liquids were always an option and we could experiment within their basic limits as we could tolerate. Their general finding was that patients do better as they moved into more real foods, as the GI tract needs to be stimulated to remember what it was doing before surgery. This may also help explain why some who were on extensive liquid diets (including pre-op) often struggle to transition to more solid foods.

As noted by others, follow your doc's particular plan (you hired him for his expertise, after all...) as it is what they have found works best for them. (and if anything goes wrong, you will get the blame for not being compliant, even if your action has nothing to do with the problem.)

Hey I wanted to let you know that I just had Gastric bypass RNY on 1/27 and I’m on Pre-soft foods diet until my two week postoperative appt then they will advance me to soft foods and I will be on that for another ten days then move on to regular diet. It really depends on what you feel comfortable with and what will make you feel satisfied and not sick. I have broke out with allergic reaction and I’m itching to death I really not even eating much hoping to get relief tomorrow with doctor visit. Good Luck😊

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
