Hello,

I have been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia that is causing GERD and also respiratory problems/asthma. The Dr warned me of significant dietary restrictions following an invasive wrap procedure. But I had never heard of TIF. Are there foods you cannot eat, or that you have to chew differently after TIF or other wrap procedure?

Thanks,

Thanks for your quick reply, and the info on the post-op diet.

Is this a recovery diet or a permanent dietary change?

Thanks

Hi, Ramsey!

Diets after recovery vary depending on you and your body. Many people can eat everything they want after a few weeks, some people have to wait a few months, or longer.

I had a nissen wrap on Dec 13th and have had no problems eating anything. I don't eat meat but I've tried just about everything and so far so good. Everyone is different though. I was expecting to be on a liquid diet for weeks but it didn't turn out that way.

Best of luck to you!

The short answer to the TIF diet is liquids for two weeks after the TIF surgery. Weeks 2 to 7 the diet is soft foods. The last five weeks stay away from fibrous foods such as pineapple, celery, and asparagus. There are other restrictions on the TIF web site. After the diet restrictions the diet returns to normal.

Good luck,
Sheldon

Hi!

Hope people see this post; I wasn't sure if I should start a new topic or continue it here: it's about the diet after TIF/HH repair..

I had the TIF and a partial Nissen wrap a few weeks ago (12/23) and have a question for all you experts out there. I am in desperate need for a protein source and extra calories and have run out of ideas.

I am allergic to soy and milk/cheese. Watery beans have worked somewhat, as long as I don't have too much in one sitting/day.

I was trying coconut milk ice cream but the higher fat content was really hard on my stomach and I spent a sleepless few nights after having had it after dinner.

I am losing too much weight, I feel, and need a 'heavier' food that I can handle. Peanut butter didn't work either.

SO, protein source ideas and ways to load calories. Any ideas, folks?? idea

PS perhaps I ought to call my doctor, too.....but ideas are welcome.

Bob,

This is the URL for the TIF diet. http://www.endogastricsolutions.com/PDF/brochures/NP01735-01B_PrePost-Op_Brochure.pdf

I could not get the 4th page to load correctly and it is the page with the TIF post diet.

This is the URL for TIF web site. http://www.endogastricsolutions.com/

Hope that this helps.

Have you considered Ensure? I had a TIF last April and I drank two Ensures each day. I believe each Ensure is 25% of the protein for a day. The best price I found for Ensure is at Costco.

Good protein source, and easy to swallow is hard-boiled egg whites. Also, following my TIF surgery I bought a large container of Muscle Milk drink mix from the Vitamin Shoppe. Mix with water. A little cheaper than Ensure and the similar clones per serving...

Another thing that was satisfying to me, felt cool going down and has some calories, is pineapple sherbet.
