Hi everyone :-) . Just asking peoples advice on their diets after a Nissen and what their different surgeons told them to eat and not to eat and drink. I`m nearly 2 weeks post op and doing as well as expected, but feel i could progress to the next stage.
 My surgeon told me-  The 1st 2/3 days were liquid only.
                                 Then the next 2/3 weeks were, custards, yoghurts,milk shakes and blended
                                 Then after that very soft foods for 2/3 months- which he as described as pasta
                                 , rice, minced meat, mashed potato, noodles etc....
He also said no "fizzy drinks", no steak and no white bread. I`m sticking to all of this as i want the op to be a 100% succesfull, but I`m starting to get a bit down and depressed about not eating properly......
Is this the diet most people stick too? Any ideas of anything else i could try? idea
Many thanks in advance for any replies...

If the food is able to be chewed throughly to a liquid you can have it now but keep the amount small.
At week 3 I could handle scrambled eggs, grits, etc. I drank a lot of ensure and boost during my recovery.

Look up post nissen surgery diet and it will help a lot.

Hi Ribbler,
Have you seen these in the Resources thread?
