Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I had my surgery on wednesday 9/16 and im feeling ok, just a little bit of pain from the incision area and from the gas..

i have some questions..

Right now im still on thin liquids, next week when i start regular liquids, can i make something like a banana smoothie with nonfat milk? what are some other things i can have?

When i start the mushy stage..can i have bananas, and are scrambled eggs ok? has anyone tried baby food? I want to have an idea of what i should be having so i can buy it ahead of time...thanks in advance!!

Nana, every doctor is different about what they allow. I'd hate to tell you yes, you can have a smoothie and have you find out that your doc says no. My doc did allow them. "Regular" liquids included Soups (if it had any chunky stuff in it, I just ran it through the blender, which makes it look weird but it taste the same), SF pudding, SF Jello, SF popsicles, juice, Protein Shakes, skim milk, broths (though I wouldn't drink that stuff that comes in cans and boxes; I made my own stocks)....

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
