Not yet. I started some pureed things.. going veeery slow

The pureed is so nasty I can't do the texture so I'm sticking to yogurt, pudding and broth, and cream Soups no chunks

Any fellow march surgery buddies on solids yet?
Not full time solids, but I do have on occasion. Random things like a like a piece of chicken from one of my kids Chipotle bowls, a (very small) piece of pizza during a birthday party, stuff like that. My rny was 3/1 and I am almost 6 weeks out. Not sure if it helps, but my dietician said rny heal faster than sleeve so we normally progress sooner.

I had rny on 3/1. I’m eating everything. Just got the ok to eat raw veggies and I couldn’t wait to have a salad. Somethings are too much for me - like grilled chicken (too tough) and seafood - but most things I’m handling well. Still staying away from the bad foods tho. Soups still go down a lot easier and better.

Hi Everyone! I know I'm late to the game here but I had VSG on 3/22. So far things have been fairly easy. I'm on pureed foods right now which is getting boring and I still find it tough to get in all the Protein and liquids I'm supposed to but every day is getting better. I finally hit 20lbs down yesterday which feels amazing. I love reading everyone's stories on here, can't wait to see our progress!

I love seeing everybody's stories too. My surgery was 03/24. I'm having trouble eating solid food unless its soft. I feel a wave of pain in my chest when I tried to eat chicken. It comes and goes for a few minutes. I'm guessing it's my esophagus muscle squeezing. I've had that before when I thought I ate too much. This time, I had very little chicken so I know it wasn't that. It scared me. So I'm back to eating eggs for Protein. I did have a stage 3 hiatal hernia repaired. It might have been that as well.

Joined the local YMCA. They don't have a swimming pool, but my membership is nationwide, so I can go to one of the other swimming pools in the county. My kids love it, and they have some workout machines outside a play area. There are glass windows so you can use a bike, row machine, etc while watching the kids play.

Upcoming challenges:

Still unable to take Vitamins w/o nausea. Was considering ordering some Patches, but I'm not sure about their efficacy

COVID 19 booster on Friday. I'm dreading this most of all. I've had 3 shots and I had a strong reaction to every single one. Fever 104, headache, body aches, fatigue, basically flu symptoms for about 3 days. I don't want to eat or drink, so I'll be struggling with fluids.

Can't you postpone your booster for a few weeks? Seems like hydration is a higher-priority need.

Hello All!

I had surgery on March 5th. Everything has been going relatively well regarding eating, and I'm on soft food for two more weeks. I was just wondering if anyone can eat veggies yet? I would love a salad!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
