I was wondering if the VSG veterans who were in the purée stage for Thanksgiving have any food recommendations for the big day. Looks like I’ll be able to taste mashed potatoes and plain sweet potatoes. Would deviled egg filling be too rich? I hit purée stage this Tuesday and cannot wait! Any purée advice is appreciated. Congratulations to everyone!

I wasn’t at that stage on thanksgiving but I can suggest you try one new thing at a time so if it doesn’t agree you will know what it was that didn’t. Some others have mentioned the pumpkin pie filling.

Yes, it is trial & error as to what will sit well in your still healing & often fussy tummy.

Try puréeing some turkey thigh (breast is too dry & coarse) with gravy or stock. Won’t look pretty but you’ll be eating turkey.

Yes, for Thanksgiving ill be on puree so, but learned you get full fast after 2 or 3 bites. Im gonna play it safe and have chicken broth with veggies. Last night i had popeyes mashed potatos, could only eat half of the small cup. Goodluck!!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
