All surgeons are different, so just follow your surgeon's guidelines.

Oh wow you are not that big in my opinion. I remember being 190lb and i am 5'4 in high school. if i was 190lb now i personally would not be getting surgery. But thats me. Good luck on your surgery.

Mine was 10 days puréed until 4 months post op which is this coming Tuesday and then soft for another month so everyone is different just follow what you were told My nutritionist said if your tummy doesn’t like the puréed go back to liquid for a few days try again everyone heals differently

That is not an appropriate post. We are not here to judge other people's decisions to have or not have surgery. OP discussed this with their surgeon and they feel that surgery is the right answer. Keep your opinions on whether people "need" surgery to yourself. We deal with enough judgement in the outside world.

Im still waiting on my surgery date.

Sent from my LM-V600 using BariatricPal mobile app

I was told that as well but then 2 weeks before my surgery they said I should start with shakes, small meal is chicken and vegetables lunch, small fruit and shake for dinner. I’m assuming to get used to the amount of calories you will be trying to take in post op. I am on all Clear Liquids on Sunday for surgery on Monday.

Everyone’s preop diet is different. Mine was low fat carb sugar for two weeks and two days liquid and that was hard enough. Some people have to do several weeks liquid. I would just count your blessings if I were you.

My surgery is scheduled for Feb 23, 2022. My surgeon told me (when I saw him on Jan 11) to do Keto until two days before my surgery and then it will be liquids.< /p>

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
