Hi all,
Just got back from my two week check up with my surgeon and he said everything looks really good,he also opened up my diet so I can finally eat something with substance! Does anyone have any advice on what works best for an early diet? I learned from reading other posts to eat slow and chew,chew,chew but after two weeks of liquids only I am a little nervous about what I can handle.

Did your Dr. tell you what to advance to? I am guessing soft diet? Check out this site:
If you have any questions re the diet - do call your DRs. office as his nurse should be able to guide you.

Hello Keith!

Start slow. Soft scrambled eggs, pasta or rice, ground meats, thin oatmeal, mashed potatoes, not-tough cuts of meat (chewed thoroughly), vegetable noodle soup, toast, and the like. The key is going to be to chew well and to have warm liquid handy in case something feels like it gets stuck.

Take it slow and don't push it.

Be well and take care!

Thanks for the advice,my dr. Did say start with soft food and listen to my body then slowly introduce new foods. Had chicken broth with egg added to it last night and all went well but got full really fast.

Yikes this is a scary thing to go through, thank god for all the good people on this site!
