Family Support during Gastric Sleeve



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, my mother had her gastric sleeve surgery on 10/20, I have been helping her through this journey. She doesn’t know much English so I have been the one to communicate and translate with Dr/Nurses.. pretty much everyone for her. Also have been fixing her meals and crushing her meds. Any tips anyone can share would be helpful. I am now getting some pushback from her not wanting to eat certain things or do certain things. Any help would be appreciated 😍

I have one question.. during day 8-14 I can add full liquids to her diet.. does this mean I can cook food and purée for my mother, or do I have to stick to a restrictive type of cream Soups?

You're a gem, helping your mom ❤️

The "full liquid" on the plan my surgeon does is not pureed food, it is stuff like pudding, cream Soups with no bits, Protein Shakes, yogurt, etc. My plan has a "soft foods" stage in between full liquid and pureed, too. I'd ask the surgical team or dietician for the guidelines they recommend, because they all seem to be different. :)

I apologize. I just looked through my paperwork, and I don't appear to have a pureed stage. I guess that might go in the "soft foods" stage for mine, because after that, I have "soft/solids". LOL Like I said, every team has a different plan.

Thanks so much for responding... I asked only because I seen others mention the purée stage and so it confused me cause I know In the guide we have on week two it includes cream Soups and stuff like pudding.
