Inspired by this thread. And as to be expected people say thank you.

So there is someone giving advice. A lot of people write about their problems and ask for advice. Sometimes they only want to rant, but a lot of the time they ask for advice. And usually they get it.

So when we look at the thread I linked in the first line I see users saying "thank you" and "great tips" etc. and that is all fine and we see it in many threads where advice is given. "Oh, great advice, I'm going to try this!" and "Thank you, sounds great" etc. and this is of course the polite way to respond.

However, I usually don't see someone really giving feedback about what worked or what didn't work. Someone might say that plain Water is hard to drink. Makes him gag, especially when it's at room temperature. So someone suggests ice cold water, others suggest hot tee, another might suggest an air up bottle and so on. But there almost never seems to be any feedback about what worked or (maybe even more important!) what didn't work for them.

Am I just not seeing this because I look at the wrong threads? Or do users really don't give feedback e. g. a few weeks later?

I personally haven't given much feedback, as I don't think I'm far along in my journey. I have however given the advice I've been given by my dietitian and surgeon. But I also realise that what works for one person won't work for another.

E.g. avoid ice cold drinks, stick to cool drinks and flavour with sugar free cordials.

I was also told to add 4 tbsps of marvel (dried milk) to a pint of skim milk to drink throughout the day for an added 40g of Protein :)

I no longer have the puree diet sheet, but here is the week 5-8 soft phase and week 8 onwards solid food stages if you're interested :)

Sometimes seems like it.
