At day 10, I can eat mash potatoes and pasta with little trouble.

What are some suggestions for other foods to try?

I meet with my surgeon next to discuss this but if I feel ambitous I might try it.

How about Tofu, Fish? I can live without bread and meats for now. I'm slowly getting tired of Boost lol. Maybe I should try some protein shakes instead of Boost.

Regarding exercising, when did you start again? Running, classes, or light lifting? I currently do walking daily but I don't want to go to fast regarding exercise and food.

Again I will discuss this with my doctor but wanted some insight from you guys.

Just look out for the peak swelling :)
You can easily eat fish and maybe try with a bit of chicken an plenty of gravy. As I said before rice was not good for me.

Regarding exercise I think i did my first run around week 3. Just take it very easy, dont strain yourself and if something hurts stop. If you follow those rules and you feel up for it I can’t see why you shouldn't try it out.
My doctor said I could begin after 7 days but that I would probably not feel like doing anything until week 3 or 4. Just don’t overdo it, take it easy.

Sounds great Jesper. Thanks. I notice I'm getting more of an appetite now days than right after the surgery. I'll start with some tofu and fish then work my way to some chicken ;) maybe even do some light exercising as well too
