This is what i was cleared to eat after 2 weeks... Now i tell you all surgeons are different. Some wont allow this type of food for much longer. but i didnt have any issues with this. You should be following what your surgeon says

Differs from surgeon to surgeon, you should follow your surgeons plan.

For example; @liveaboard15 shares he was on soft foods, but at 14 days I was JUST starting pureed foods.

My plan was 2 weeks liquids, 2 weeks pureed, 2 weeks soft foods and then gradually back to a normal healthy diet.

I have seen so many different alternatives though, I know someone who had sleeve and was on a liquid diet for 6 weeks!! Talk about harsh.

Yes, post and pre-op, vary widely from practice to practice. Ours was similar to above, with most anything in the liquid, mushy, pureed or soft categories acceptable for the entire first month, then moving to solids after that. Some may be on liquids only for a month or more; or anything in between. A big YMMV thing.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
