Week 3 post surgery full liquids

Recommended Posts

I had my surgery on January 5th, I am two weeks postop and am on a full liquid diet. Needing some ideas on stuff to eat, I’ve been doing two bites of yogurt and egg drop soup/tomato Soup. I’ve been doing my Protein Drinks too but need ideas for a variety of foods. Thank you in advance

Were you given a list of foods to eat & avoid during each stage? It’s always best to follow the plan you’re given by your surgeon.

You could try bone broths & pho & wonton Soups (without the wontons, noodles, vegetables, etc. of course). Actually all soups are good just strain them to ensure there are all liquid - no chunks or fibrous bits. If you’re on full liquid how are you eating yoghurt? It’s usually added during the purée stage but then all plans are different. You can have a yoghurt drink/smoothie just blitz your yoghurt with milk, Protein Powder (plain or flavoured), etc.

Once you’re on the purée stage you can look to thicker but still thin foods like scrambled eggs, instant oats, even meats (incl tinned fish) blended with gravy, stock, milk, mayo, etc. then strained. Lots more options then.

Check to see if these things are allowed on your plan first though.

      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!!

        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 .
