I am 7 days out now from a revision bypass.
I am feeling pretty good. Out of shape it seems but I know it’s major surgery. I had a umbilical hernia repair on top of it. Caffeine withdrawal headache was a killer but it has pretty much subsided.

My thing is, is my diet protocol the same as the sleeve. Can you recommend a site or a possibly printable friendly list.
It seems I have to be more careful this time around.
One the hernia heals I think I’ll be doing a lot better.
My nutritionist wasn’t this helpful this time around and I go back to the surgeon on Monday and also the 25th.

Thanks.

There is no universal RNY or WLS or VSG diet, as doctors and diets vary all over the map. If the surgeon who did your bypass is the same as the one who did your sleeve, then most likely the diets will be the same as most doctors do the same thing for all of their patients. Some might be more restrictive than others for their bypass patients, fearing something getting stuck in the stoma (but again, they usually apply the same instructions to their VSG patients as well, even though they don't have a stoma.)

You may find diet guidelines from another practice online, but no guarantees as to whether is fits with your doctor's instructions (some surgeons would have an absolute fit if their patients used our surgeon's diet progression!) If you keep things on the liquidy side this first week or two, that will be consistent with most surgeons' instructions

I do a lot of volunteer work for my clinic. All the patients are supposed to follow the same diet guidelines, regardless of surgery.

It is still major surgery and your stomach/bypass will be new so I suggest starting slowly on a liquid diet for even a week plz don't rush into solids

Nope, no rush :) just don't want to miss something!! :)

I figured it was very similar to the sleeve.

I did have some pureed Soup today and I'm doing just fine. I'm getting my Protein in, shakes.< /span>

it's going to be hit or miss this time around - differently than the sleeve I'm sure. Since there is no digestion in the stomach or food sitting, I'll be harder to figure out what I can and cant have.

I just honestly can't wait to have an scrambled egg or egg white LOL

I bought ground turkey for my family, but I aint going to do that ... I just cant see myself pureeing that! LOL

I'm able to sip a bit more now which is great *hydrate* and i am better w/ the headaches which were horrendous last week, but I believe they were caffeine related.
