Hi Everyone,

This forum is so helpful.

Im 3.5 weeks post op and while i was cutting up a salad for my kids i had some chopped tomatoes. I must say i tolerated it better than cottage cheese.

Is it an issue to eat chopped tomatoes (without peel) or soft mango even if officially its not on the food group allowed yet?

Is there a risk that my stomach will stretch or something?

I would love some clarification on that.

Thanks so much!!

That's exactly when I stalled out for a week. I had lost about 10 pre-op & 9 post op so I was trying not to kick myself too hard. it's been almost a week since I hopped back on the scale. It's currently shark week for me so I was waiting till it ended to hop on again since I tend to be heavier. My doctor told me not to watch the scale too hard in the first month anyways.

OK, I feel a bit better to know that people can stall this early. I hope it won't last long.

I weigh myself every day and have done for a long time. The only times I stop weighing myself is on vacation, or if I'm overeating and in wilful denial.

Watch this brief YouTube. It's a great explanation for the scale stall.

Hey buddies! Because it is Midnight, today is my 4th day pre-op of the shrinking liver diet. Let me tell you, I was very very hungry today while running errands and came home and sipped on homemade chicken broth my mom brewed for me. I added a drop of Sriracha and a dash of black pepper and it was soooooo good. Taste like ramen!

I had my surgery yesterday, it was a long day, and last night I had A LOT of pain from the air in my chest. I was finally able to get some out and feel much better. My stomach just feels bruised as of now. And I just had my leak test, so I can finally have a drink!!!

You're past what was the hardest part for me! Hopefully it just gets easier from here on out!

How soon after surgery did yall start Protein Drinks again?


All plans are different. I had a nutritional supplement in the hospital, but mine allowed me to start them when I got home from the hospital - as long as I could tolerate them. Thankfully I had no problems.

Did your practice give you a meal plan or guide to follow?

        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.
