When does a phase start/end?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved 2/21. I had my first post-op appointment with my surgeon on 2/27, where he told me the following day I could start on purees for 2 weeks and then I could move on to soft foods for 1 week and then be on regular solids following that. I feel like my confusion has stemmed from my nutritionists confusion on where I was in the phases. She kept counting one week less than I would. I'm 4 week post-op tomorrow but will be starting on week 5 solids as far as phases goes. Is this confusing to anyone else or just me? lol

It is confusing. I was supposed to be on soft foods/purée starting my 3rd week per my nutritionist and my surgeon’s paperwork, but at one week my surgeon said I could move to full liquids and start adding in soft foods slowly. Wait...what???
Lol, so for me...I listened to my surgeon and my body. I started adding in soft foods around day 9, I think. My body wanted something more substantial than just liquids. It was different than a craving for something, it’s like I needed it. Good luck for both of us figuring this out. 😂

Your tummy will let you know if you are ready, I believe. But I’m still new at this so there’s that. 😂😂

I felt like I was literally going to faint during the last week of full liquids, I added in a few pureed/soft foods in conjunction with the full liquids and immediately felt better. I don't want you to deviate from your plan, I shared this information to say that my body needed a little bit more at that point in my journey. I would also consult with your bariatric team to determine whether or not you are ready.

Ariel (my stomach) loves refried Beans and a scrambled egg. Not cooked together, in separate meals. Protein is our friend. The cream Soups were delicious, but didn't givr me the substance and nutrients that I needed. I'm still drinking Protein Shakes, I only had my procedure on 3/3/20.
