Husband and Wife Lap Band
(West Monroe, LA)
My hubby and I did lap band weight loss surgery together.
Today is 4th day after lap band surgery and I feel like we have just been tossed out into the world with no instructions.
We were given a sheet of instructions with very generic answers.
We were told 2-3 days of thin clear liquids...so we did that...we actually we did it for 2 days and most of the 3rd then we had very soupy mashed potatoes for dinner.
Our sheet said that we could have things like grits, malt o meal, oatmeal and things with that consistency. So does that mean what we can eat anything that is already like that, or if we puree it to that consistency, or should we just stick to grits and oatmeal?
We both went back to work today. We had grits for breakfast and tomato soup for lunch. When we got home we pureed tuna and and only had 1/4 cup of it.
I feel fine but there are sooo many conflicting stories of what to do and what not to do. I just need some sort of ideas. Are we doing this right?
Is it ok to eat anything as long as it has the consistency of applesauce and not too much?
We both stop eating when we feel full. We measure out 1/4 cup of food and that does it...so I know we are not over eating. Just want to make sure that we are eating right.
