I don't know the answer to your question. I know you probably don't want to tell him/her what you did, but why not ask your surgeon's office? They can probably give you the best info. And in all likelihood, they've heard it all before and won't be super shocked.

Oh just wanted add - my starting numbers were similar to yours. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Before I say anything, you absolutely need to focus on staying on plan.

So... There are plenty of post-op plans that include pureed food starting the day of surgery. So eating mashed potatoes will probably not end the world.

No matter what you do, you will lose weight for a few months. By time what you eat matters to your weight loss you'll have already built all your new habits. Once you stop losing weight it's too late to do it right.

Stay on your plan. Do it right. Now. You really can do it.

Good luck,

Tek

Probably not - that was on our early (first month) diet and I had some the first week, but surgeons know how they are doing these procedures best, and things can vary from surgeon to surgeon (one surgeon may make things more tolerable for such things early on than others). So it is still best to follow your surgeon's guidelines rather than someone else's (and you will get the blame for any complications that arise for being a noncompliant patient, even if the complication has nothing to do with your action.)
