After my 1-2 weeks of liquids, the post op diet I’ve been given by doctor for Stage 3 is 1-2 oz puréed (mushy) soft, high Protein meals for Breakfast, lunch and dinner. NO red meats, chicken breast or eggs. This seems to be different from everyone else’s plan, as I see so many have eggs and chicken. But I’m gonna follow what he’s given me. That being said, any suggestions of what puréed foods you recommend. I will not eat puréed, mushy fish. I’m at a loss.

I like pumpkin purée, mashed potatoes, ricotta bake, lentils/dal, Beans. I cook the beans and eat them without purée since they get super soft in my instapot. Also cooking carrots in the instapot and not purée but smashing it with your tongue is super awesome. The carrots get super mushy too. I make chicken and gnocchi but just have the juice and carrots. It’s flavorful. I used cauliflower and made a cheese mash but it wasn’t my favorite. Hope this helps.

That does seem very restrictive. If your surgeon gave you a list of what not to eat, did he tell you what you could? Give his surgery a call, or your dietician, & ask what you can eat.

I ate lots of minced chicken & beef (purred in a blender with stock, gravy or passata), eggs (scrambled mashed hard boiled) & very thin rolled oats. I puréed tinned salmon & it was disgusting. I was not allowed potato, sweet potato, pumpkin or carrots.

Guess you could try Beans as a high Protein alternative - mashed, in Soups, ...

actually, a lot of people have a hard time tolerating eggs and chicken breast early out (chicken breast because it's too dry - not sure why some people can't tolerate eggs, but it's a common issue). Most people are OK with them once they're a few weeks or months out, though. I don't eat much red meat - but I would imagine that could be tough on your pouch when you're early out, too.

Oh, yeah, chicken breast is too dry. Chicken thighs are the way to go - juicier & more flavour. There’s a lot of trial & error to find out what your tummy (& taste buds) will tolerate at first.

What about soft cheeses like mashed cauliflower with cheese melted in (I haven't had surgery yet so I'm not sure what's allowed)? Or refried Beans, Bone Broth (If you're not sick of it from the liquid phase)? I have lobster bisque or other Soups with Protein Powder mixed in (I heat the Soup and then add in the Protein powder mixed with water). I hope you find some things you enjoy!

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
