Where did you have your surgery done? OCC patients are on a 21-day post-op liquid diet. What's done is done in regards to your eating steak; however, you need to really recommit yourself to the process... totally and completely. Eating can cause bigger problems like a slipped band, stretched pouch, etc. If you are able to drink liquids now, you are probably fine but my doctor said that ignoring the guidelines can manifest problems that may not show up until 6 months down the road. This early in your journey... you need to follow the directions of your doctor. OCC patients are not even allowed "mushy foods" during this time.

You have sinned and put yourself and your band in danger. If you're not experiencing any ill effects then you probably haven't caused any damage . . .this time. Your doctor's orders are there for a reason. Your stomach needs time to heal and the movements caused by eating solids at this point can cause a slip as your band has not fully settled in. People can and have lost their bands by not following their post-op diets. Not to mention that if you can't control yourself when your health is immediately concerned how can you ever hope to practice self control when you're only trying to lose the weight?
