Post-op Check-Up


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I had my post op check up today and all is healing well. My weight loss is going well so far, considering I am eating 1% of what I used to!!LOL!!

I start on solid on July 11th and get my first fill on July 16th.

I am feeling well, still a little tender, itchy and tired, but looking forward to a whole new life!!! :D

Now I am excited!!! =D>

Cheers to all!

If we all would do the happy dance for each other on each opportunity, we would lose weight even faster!

Hi Denise,

I think you're right, I have a six week schedule...1-4 day post op-clear liquids, 2 weeks of creamy soups, yogurt, pudding, 2 weeks of mushy food, mashed potatoes, blended foods and then 1-2 weeks of soft solids, eggs, fish etc.

So actually on July 11, it's soft solids.

I will double check with my clinic when July roles around to make sure of the order of food...because they said I would be on solid food by the time I get my first fill on July 16th.

Take care, Cathy

Thanks everyone!

I did go back to work on Monday, I was tired afterwards, but glad I did it.

I am getting sick of creamy soups though, and need to find a fabulous, melt in your mouth, out of this world with flavour, soup!

I have seen, cream of potato, creamy carrot and torilla soup on this forum. Does anyone else have a fabulous soup they want to share?

Have a great day!

I posted a Creamy Cauliflower soup in the recipe section but it is blended. The only thing is that Dr. Miranda had told me blending veggies was okay and I didn't know Dr. O said no blender until later. Anyway it is thinner than the campbell's cream of mushroom if you don't add much flour so it should be okay. I totally lived on it and it was the highlight of my day when I was on soups. In fact I miss it now that I am on solids, lol. B)

Each doctor has their own prescribed diet. OCC is 21 days liquids -- clear then to creamy followed by solids on Day 21. We don't have a mushy food segway perhaps that's why yours is extended?
