How did this turn out for you? I started mush foods today. I measured out 4 oz of mushy food on my food scale and expected to save half for tomorrow. I felt ZERO restriction while eating. I probably ate around 2.5-3 oz. I have waited 3 mins between bites and even took breaks to wait to get full. It never happened. I got so concerned that I stopped eating and left the rest of the bowl alone. I also can drink a great deal. This is the opposite of what I’ve read happening so I’m wondering if I should call my doctor. I’m also a slow loser (having lost only 10 lbs since surgery), so I’m paranoid.

I am a bit concerned that my pouch is too big. I never have had any pain or problems with swallowing. I was able to drink 6 oz Water at once first day after surgery with normal swallowing like before VSG. I can swallow large pills and tonight was able to drink 11.9 oz Protein Shake in 5 minutes. After reading all you struggling with 1-2 oz in 15 minutes, I feel very different. I am ONE WEEK post VSG.

I did rny and my surgeon does golf ball sized pouch and all the things you said is true. hard to get in Water etc. it varies by surgeon. gastric bypass can hold less than sleeve so dont compare the golf ball to your banana pouch lol. compare banana with banana 🤓

I am almost 8 wks out & will agree with some of the previous post, I feel full a lot quicker since I have progressed to more solid type foods. I try my best to wait drinking anything 30min before & after I eat, but sometimes that's impossible. I really appreciate all that post their experiences, it makes this path more bearable.
