Hi! I am 10 days post gastric bypass surgery, but I am really scared because I am able to eat a lot of yogurt and I’m scared I stretched my pouch! Is this possible or am I spiraling?

you're not going to feel the restriction right away. First of all, some nerves were cut during surgery, and it takes awhile for them to regenerate. Secondly, most of us don't feel restriction until we start eating solid food. For now, you're going to have to measure your food and just eat whatever you've portioned out (following the guidelines given by your clinic). It's hard because you're not going to feel "full" for awhile - but just eat what they tell you to eat.

I highly doubt you've stretched your pouch - it takes chronic overeating to do that - but don't get back into the overeating habit. You're just a few days out. Trust your program.

Most patients are on full liquid diets on day 10 postop. Your surgeon allows yogurt this soon? Are you eating fat free plain Greek yogurt? Or name brand, carb-loaded regular yogurt?

Stats: 5'1", age 67, female. Highest weight: 245. BMI 41. Surgery Date: May 28, 2020. Weight at surgery: 211. VSG.

Plans vary. I was allowed to start purees as soon as i left the hospital. I don't know what the OP's clinic's plan is, but as long as she follows it, she should be fine
