Started soft foods today



Recommended Posts

I'm 15 days post-op - and started soft foods today. It's been a challenge! I literally had 1/3 of a scrambled egg for Breakfast, 1/3 for lunch, and 1/3 for dinner. And 1 tablespoon of grits with 1 teaspoon of light cream cheese. I did the whole mash into tiny bites, and I took breaks between each tiny bite, and chewed well - which was really weird trying to chew a bite the size of a pencil eraser 15 times. I'm going to have to have a Protein Shake at some point tonight to try and boost my Protein. And my stomach is *really* grumbling tonight. I really haven't had a hard time with full liquids - after the first few days. I'm hoping soft foods will kinda be like liquids were at first - and I'll be able to eat more in a few days? And I haven't gotten in my 64 ozs of Water today either - with the whole stop 30 mins before and 30 mins after - and also, if I feel pressure in my chest, my surgeon wants me to wait 2 hours before eating or drinking - which I did that after breakfast. Oh well - I know it's just a goal, and it should get better in a few days - and those few bites of egg did really taste good! Not sure if anyone else experienced the same thing?

The Protein Drinks go towards your total daily Fluid intake. They are 11oz each so if you have two per day, that's 22oz right there.

sounds like everything's progressing as it should. And yes - you'll be able to eat more once your stomach heals.

This is so refreshing to hear. I just advanced to purée foods today. Surgery was 2 weeks ago. I puréed baked chicken and added mashed potatoes. I ate 2 tablespoons of the chicken and 4 small bites (1tsp) of the potatoes. I’m content. I’m handling this better than liquids, thankfully.
