I was on clear liquids for two weeks but that included, jello, popsicles, broth. Then full liquids for two weeks that i added cream soups and pudfings. Next was purree for two weeks buy i was never able to get into purree and how the food looked so i just stayed on full liquids with two protein shakes a day. Now i eat greek yogurt for breakfast and 3 oz of denise protein for lunch and dinner. But i have to pour gravy on the protein to keep it moist to go down easier. I am 7 weeks from surgery and so far have noy gotten sick once. Good luck
Clear liquids while in the hospital (3 days 2 nights)
Full liquids for the first week
purées for 3 weeks
then basically full diet with a few restrictions until 8 weeks post op, then there will be nothing I can't eat, just things I shouldn't.
Two weeks clear liquids then two weeks soft foods.

I was never on liquids exclusively (other than the usual day before surgery thing). We could do any of the mushes, purees and soft proteins as tolerated, so while liquids were a big part of it at the beginning, there was always something more substantial available on the menu during the day (scrambled eggs and yogurt along with the usual broths and juices in the hospital, for example.)
