Yeah, as was stated each surgeon has some variation on his/her plan. My surgeon's post-op plan was 3 phases:
Stage I: Liquid diet of 6 meals / day x 2 weeks with 3 protein supplements per day
Stage II: Soft diet of 6 meals / day x 4 weeks with 2 protein supplements per day
Stage III: Regular diet of 3 meals / day + 1 Afternoon Snack x for life with 0 protein supplements per day
Stage I includes pureed soups, mashed potatoes, yogurt, SF pudding, cottage cheese, oatmeal, cream of wheat, grits.
Stage II includes fish, seafood, cooked vegatables (except corn), eggs, soft fruit, soft pasta.
Stage III meal consist of 3 oz meat (eaten first), 2 oz vegatable (eaten second), 1 oz fruit (eaten last) - but always stop eating when full.
Mileage may vary...
