    Thank you all for your good wishes,
    I’m back home, everything went just fine and I’m taking it easy now.
    The only thing is that I’m a bit lost now on what should I eat and how often,because at the moment I don’t feel the need to eat, what I feel is quite thirsty all the time, but I don’t know if there is an amount of water you can drink at the time, I’m very scare to make myself sick because my tummy still sore and I don’t think I could cope with making the effort, any advice? please?

    I don’t know where you have gad it done but you shoudl aim for 3 meals and 3 snacks a day.

    Drink 64 fl oz i think it is. but not half an hour either size of eating anything so half and hour be for and not for half and hour after. You won’t make it through this amount yet but you sure need to try to get as much fluid down you as you can.

    Your dinner dish for now should be a ramekin size and protein first followed by veg followed by carbohydrates. At the moment it is just puree for a few weeks. snack on mashed banana, cheese triangles that sort of this. Milky coffee for a snack as it is good for fluid as well as protein. I am sure there will be lots of people along with some more suggestions. Breakfast weetabix, ready brek add fruit puree for a change and just watch the sugar content nothing over 5g per 100g or you will dump.

    Good luck and welcome to the losers bench xx

    Hi yes drink sips all the time and think about having 3 meals (liquid) a day. If you are not sure look through the info from the hospital you will find ideas of what to have. Also i found Carol Bowden Ball s book very good called return to slender at the moment you need the first book. you can find it on her website Bariatric cookery or Amazon.
    Wishing you well in your recovery……..one other tip start gentle walks outside if you can, helps get started and recovery and with wind!

    Thank you girls for all the good advice,

    I was done at St Richards, feeling much better every day, I think I’m doing quite all right as at the moment I haven’t had any displeasures and I’m definitely going to look into the cookery book as I see that many of you are big fans of it.
    I’ll keep you posted 🙂
