Hi there,

I've had my sleeve surgery on 29/04. I was so scared but after the operation I was good. I struggled to get Water down after operation. This Friday it would be two weeks and I cannot wait to start eating healthy food. Miss chewing.

Anyone else on here from Melbourne, Australia?

Welcome! It is a big deal to get to solid foods. Crunchy foods are still a ways off. Eat slowly and chew well!

Hello and welcome to the group. It sounds like you are doing relatively well. Glad to hear it. Just keep working on those fluids and Protein and you will be to purées and then soft foods before you know it.

      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!!

        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 .
