Almost end of week 2, have been feeling great, no pain barely any discomfort and can drink my Water at a decent pace. When I hit my water goal, barely hungry. Tomorrow I start my pureed/mushy stage, excited to try the recepies I have seen online for this stage.

Hello everyone, had my 1st meal outside of liquid, not sure why I chose chili aside from my team saying we could have it. I took my sweet time eating it (about 40 minutes), chewing one bean 50 times and checking my body for signals, I added 2 oz of broth to thin it out and dilute the spices. I was able to have 1oz when I got a hiccup and since that is one of the full signals, I stopped immediately. I'm monitoring myself like crazy to check for anything out of sorts, but I will skip it for a few meals to try things maybe with a little less spice.

Hope everyone is having a great start of their weeks!

How’s everyone doing? I have much more strength & energy. One incision is still very painful when I move certain ways. Like a searing heat through the stomach. Yikes! Other than that I’m doing well tolerating my puréed/mushed food & getting all fluids. I do need to focus more on Water though. I do better when I carry around a cup of ice & slowly munch throughout the day. I’m 16 days post op & down 18lbs. My doctor was happy when he saw me at 1 week post op & I was down 10. Hope everyone else is doing very well also. What are y’all eating? I wish Protein was available in pill form!

I'll be a month PO on Sunday and have only just stopped having incision pain in the last day or so -- I didn't take tylenol this morning for the first time in weeks! Had a lot more luck with my Water once I switched to a straw cup (my doctor's office confirmed yesterday that they think the literature recommended against straws is outdated) and meeting my Protein goals when I started making my own Protein Shake in the morning with unflavored powder, fairlife milk, and PB2 -- it doesn't really taste like anything, but after all the super sweet Protein Shakes I had the first few weeks that's exactly what I want.

Hi doing well here 2 weeks post op. Have been eating tuna with lots of yogurt, had chili once, crab salad, egg bites with hummus, mozzarella cheese, ground turkey, all handled well.

My fluids are at about 55oz to 60z but it gets hard, its easier to meet protein with a 30g shake for Snacks otherwise I fall at 50g

Today have not been hungry since Breakfast, but having shakes throughout the day.

Had my 2 week follow up, everything is going great. I have to start my gall bladder medicine today and in 2 weeks my B12 injections. Everything I have had to eat has settled good, and I'm consistently drinking 50-55oz which he said was good. I have not been doing much activity, I figured I will start when the dreaded 3-week stall comes around and that will trick it lol, let's see if that works lol

Wow! Well done. I’m having such a hard time drinking what I need to while just sipping. Plus, eating is a nuisance. I’ve stalled on weight loss in my second week bc I’m not eating/drinking enough…I suspect. What’s your schedule/ technique?

We have what the doctor calls a boot camp, I try to stick to it as much as I can but essentially is get up have a hot drink, Breakfast within 90 minutes of waking up, which is now an egg bite with hummus or some Protein Shake, then every 2.5hrs to 3 alternate between Protein shake, lunch, protein shake and dinner. Meals should only take 30mins so it is whatever I can eat in that time.

I have a premier shake which is 30g, I add Water and the unflavored protein to make it closer to 40g and split that within the 2 Protein Shakes I will have in a day. Lunch and dinner are basically the same (tuna/crab salad/ground turkey) and at most 2oz. Then is sipping water all day, I start the moment I open my eyes in bed, even drink throughout the night. Take the bottle to the bathroom and make sure I sip ever 5 to 10 min. Last night I stayed up 30 min just to finish my last 2 ounces 🤣 but he said that as long as I'm getting 40oz I'm doing good, since my program does only count protein shakes as half the liquid.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
