I'm super jealous. I moved on to "pureed", foods, but it's just Cottage cheese, Ricotta cheese, and Yogurt only until my 2 week appointment. Only after that am I allowed to move to things like Beans, chicken, tuna, etc. I can't even do the ricotta bake until then (I asked).

What about it can't you have? I'm guessing its the Tomato based sauce? Its so weird how every Dr is different. Hopefully with at least having new foods to try, this week will go fast for you and you can have even more new things to try next week.

Don't worry it is coming. I am on soft foods as of tomorrow. I am in the minority I know, but I didn't like the ricotta bakes much.

I loved having it as my 1st puree food, but I have to agree that its not as great as I was really hoping it would be. I so would still take it over any broth though. I now don't even want to look at a Soup after the liquid diet lol.

This is creamy chicken casserole soft bariatrics from pinterest.

How do you make that? Looks like good comfort food.

I just cannot do yogurt taste like sour milk to me and I am worried when I get to that stage.

hello september friends!

i had my gastric bypass on 9/7 and my food progression isn’t entirely going to plan. :(

i was supposed to move on to puréed but my new stomach was rejecting it so i tried backing up to full liquids again, and now THAT’S being rejected. i have an appointment next monday for an endoscopy to see if there’s something wrong or if they need to adjust my stomach pouch or widen my new stomach connection. apparently this can be a pretty common and my surgeon said once you start vomiting it steps your stomach healing back a couple steps.

i am endlessly happy for my surgery and i knew this was an anticipated hurdle. thank gods for the six months to prepare for my life post-op.

I felt that way I was able to eat cream of wheat for the first time, so good.

I can have it, I just didn't like the way it tasted.

I had surgery monday 9/26. Everything went well. My pain was alot so I stayed in the hospital till Wednesday morning. While in the hospital I had broth, but hardly ate it. Since today is my first day home I've have 2 premier shakes equally 60 grams of Protein. I've successfully consumed at least 60 fl oz of fluids today. My scars ache a bit but I've been moving around and plan on going for a walk tomorrow.

Gas pains are the absolute worst.

I'm on a 2 week liquid diet, can't wait to actually be able to eat food again.

Also any good recommendations for belly binders?

I hear you.

When I started walking right after surgery, all I could manage was about 10 minutes. Now I'm up to two 20 minute walks a day. (My surgery was 9/20.) Interestingly, the more I do, the more I feel like I can do. You may just have to push through the tired feeling?

My surgery was 9/12, so 10 days before yours. My energy comes and goes. I do notice that it is getting better every day.

My surgery was 9/26 so I'm 4 days post op... and I thought I'd be doing better at fluids by now, but I'm still only managing between 28-35 oz a day, that's with liquid, Jello Popsicles anything I can handle to try to get more down... I think I'm going to need to go to get fluids later today, has anyone els had this issue?

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
