I'm wondering how soon after surgery you were able to start pureed foods and what exactly one can eat pureed.

Post op diets vary significantly, it is always best to follow your surgeon's or dietian's guidelines.

I had two weeks liquid then went onto pureed for a couple of weeks followed by a four weeks mnced/soft graduating to soft/normal in that four weeks.

My dietician had on her list for pureed foods: high Protein (low sugar) yoghurts, custard (I did this once only as I found it too sweet and triggered my sweet tooth), scrambled egg, cottage and ricotta cheese, sandwich style tuna (spreadable), blended Soups and the like such as casseroles...but they had to be highly blended. Was also advised to supplement with Protein Drinks if needed.

As noted, diets, pre- and post-op vary significantly. We were on purees and soft foods in the hospital, while others will have to wait some weeks for that. The prospect of the pureed lettuce that they served there kinda turned me off to the thought of pureed anything (lol) so, with the flexibility of our program, I never did, but just danced around the issue between the various liquids, mushies and soft things that we could eat. Yogurts, oatmeal, cream of wheat, puddings (made with Protein powder) eggs and soft cheeses should do the trick. For specifics on what exactly is allowed for you, that's specific to your doctor's program and they should provide you with guidance as to what exactly they consider "pureed" and what they expect at this time.
