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.
