Have you progressed to 'normal foods' yet? Does your post op food plan provide guidelines for when going to normal foods? If so, are these fruits on it? Last question what surgery did you have?

If you had a bypass the natural sugars may be too much for you at this time?? Regardless of which surgery I wonder if at this point (six weeks out) whether pineapple may be a bit too fibrous?

I had gastric sleeve surgery, and yes I am allowed to have normal foods again but I was just wondering if I can eat raw fruits again since I’ve been only drinking fruit smoothies. They didn’t give me a food plan for normal foods.

pineapple has a lot of acid in it - not sure if that will bother your stomach or not. It would have mine. Strawberries have seeds - I was supposed to avoid those at first - I can't remember when I was allowed to have those. I'd call your clinic and ask.

I'm 6 weeks out and am eating apples, mangoes, all kinds of berries, kiwis, and bananas. I haven't had any issues. These are allowed on my plan though so it's possible it's different for other people.

Great to see a fellow middle eastern in this website! also I will try some kiwis and see if I can tolerate them like you did.

Once you're allowed past liquids and soft foods, all options are on the table.

I had an RNY and was specifically told not to eat strawberries and to avoid seeds and skins on food like potatoes and fruit. As all say- so many different diet requirements....

Best of luck!

Berries are good. I ate a lot of Water melon at first because it helped with my Fluid intake. I’d probably avoid the pineapple to begin because of its acid & fibrous nature.

Like most foods, it’s trial & error as to which ones you’ll be able to tolerate. I love mangoes & lychees but they tend to trigger my restriction pretty darn quickly. And remember because of the temporary change to your taste buds you may not enjoy eating your favourite fruits at first.
