Dear Summer, you are doing really well, and it is perfectly natural to feel distressed by sitting with other people who are eating food you love, we are animals after all, and don’t naturally live on a liquid diet, so your feelings are totally normal, and you are not to worry. Yes it is difficult, no, we can’t eat much after surgery initially, but, you will work up to having small meals again, and introducing a wide variety of food back into your diet, and many people are not actually hungry post-op, which can mean we don’t feel as deprived as if we were using will-power alone. My friend Tinks once she was on sloppy food, just pureed her normal meals she cooked for her family, and had her favourite curry from quite early on, so you may find you are like that too, and can tolerate nice spicy food, just much more blended and moist.

For now though, try not to look too far ahead, just cross off each day of milk diet, remembering all the extra fluid, jelly and meaty salty drinks, and then concentrate on the op, and then on the recovery etc. I found that helped me, and after the op. I did have to clear my wardrobe and hook out stored clothes a size down which is lovely.

We are all here for you, and you are strong enough to keep going so don’t put yourself down, try to excercise, and to go off on your own with your milk at mealtimes if possible. Thinking of you, xx
