What is your plan at this point?

What others eat is beside the point because we are not on your plan.

Knowing your plan, I'm sure folks can come up with good suggestions.

Congrats on your surgery. At one month post surgery I was beginning my soft food phase. Tek was actually correct to ask what’s on your plan. Your medical team should have provided you with guidelines as to what food to be eating at each stage. If you’re on soft food now look for stews, meals from minced meats, steamed/poached fish, eggs, long cooked vegetable & meat Soups, milky porridge, etc. Nothing that requires lots of chewing or is crunchy.

It’s a lot of trial & error to see what your tummy will tolerate & what tastes ok to you. It’s not uncommon for our taste buds to change & for foods we used to enjoy to taste hideous. Go slowly. You’ll soon work out what works for you & what doesn’t. In time, you’ll be able to eat most things & they’ll all taste delicious again (for good or bad 😁).

Are you on meds for the reflux? Ask your doctor for a script for esomeprazole. I take 20mg every day. It makes a big difference.
