 I am now 3 weeks in to having my TIF procedure. My surgeon still fails to understand that the consumption of certain foods is simply out of the question. I have been experimenting with certain soft foods now for just under 1 week. Beans are definitely out as although they were mashed up to be very soft they caused me much pain. Also tried a small 2oz peice of Talapia which set my lower GI in agony. Ensure is a daily friend. Surgeon also cannot understand my lack of stamina, we did EKG and bloodwork, Potassium has hit bottom. confused

Can you handle puddings, broths, or baby food?
You're probably still very swollen inside. Give it time. We all heal at different speeds.

Yes I do well with broth and baby food. My primary care doctor put me on Vitamin K to take care of the potassium issue.

I ate cottage cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, apple sauce, and poached eggs when I was 3 or 4 weeks into the TIF diet. Beans, even ground up, were not on my diet. They may produce too much gas. Is the Ensure helping?

The Ensure is helping. I am surprised that the potassium fell so dramatically while drinking the ensure. Applesauce has been a good friend too. Cottage cheese kind of worked on me the first time but has since settled in nicely.

It sounds like you have improved. Good luck and stay at it. In a couple of months it will be behind you and your health will have improved!
