I am just over 3 weeks out from having the sleeve done. I was given the OK to start eating solids at my last appointment. I have found that liquids are still more comfortable to eat. The sleeve as my surgeon says is "tight" for the first few months. How do you do with milk products? I find that yogurt, applesauce, cottage cheese, and of course the lovely protein drinks are still my friends. (Greek yogurt, though higher in protein still sits a bit heavy and I add a bit of milk to thin it down)
At this point my problem is getting in enough calories and high enough protein. I am supposed to be eating 80g of protein and getting around 600 calories...

Thanks for sharing...
Jess

The best thing to do is to check with your medical team. Everyone is different and has different reactions to food after surgery.

Best of luck!

I have also invited both of you to join our team for those who have had Gastric Bypass, Sleeve and Lapband

I am also 3 1/2 and just started eating food this week, I know it takes some people longer for the swelling i their stomach to go down. You might want to check with your surgeon and see if this is normal, but I bet it is just still swollen.
