It will really depend on your doctor, I advise following the plan they gave you. Once my team at my surgeon’s office advanced me to soft foods my favorite was tuna with a little mayo, or a ricotta bake.

I started soft foods at week 5. I ate scrambled eggs & omelettes, slow cooked Soups & casseroles, flaky fish, mince dishes, yoghurt, rolled oats, …. I was able to eat most meats as long as they were moist & pull apart tender. Take it slowly & try different things to see if you’re ready for them. If you struggle with them one week try them again in a week or two.

Great advice thank you.

As others have said, follow your programs plan. For me, soft foods started around 5 weeks. Rotisserie chicken shredded into complete oblivion and mixed it with a little Alouette or Boursin cheese, ground beef browned into very small bits with some refried Beans, cottage cheese, thicker Soups with very soft chunks (broccoli cheese, etc.) and Protein Powder mixed in, oatmeal with Protein powder, very thin deli meat with hummus or cream cheese, and very soft meatballs were all in heavy rotation and to some degree still are. The puree phases were a bit carb heavy for me, so when I moved to soft solids, I really started focusing on protein rich foods and learning my "fullness" queues. I'm only ~7 weeks out, and I'm still learning as I go. Just take it one meal at a time!

I don’t remember exactly when I started soft foods but I do remember that grilled fish and overly steamed veggies were the first thing I tried and they worked out well for me.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
