Post-op Diet Progress:
Next you will progress to a soft diet. During this phase you can have solid foods, avoiding hard meats (such as chicken breast, steak, etc) or fibrous vegetables like asparagus, as there may be some persistent swelling still in your stomach that may cause these items to get stuck.
- Band Patients: The softdiet phase lasts for the next 14 days.
- Sleeve/RNY/Overstitch/SIPS/ESG: The soft diet phase for the next 60 days.
