Because you can't eat before, you will probably be hungry that night. I went on a soup kick for a week.. and slurpees. (I rested the cup on my boobs as an ice pack) lots of easy to eat soft things. Pudding snacks, apple sauce.. that is just me though. Oh.. and chocolate.

Congratulations on the new boobies!!! I am happy for you!

My PS recommended a light liquid diet; ginger ale, broth, and possibly some crackers if I felt up to solid foods. I packed apple sauce, ritz, pudding cups, and of course I had to have hershey kisses to help with the sore throat .

Girl, I was absolutely starving a few hours after surgery and ordered $60 worth of food to be delivered (so much for the light liquid diet). I ordered BBQ ribs & chicken, chef salad, beans, coleslaw, garlic bread, and chicken soup. Then I realized that I couldn't use my chest muscles to feed myself with, and ended up sucking the soup up through a straw that my mom had to hold up for me when she wasn't laughing at me trying to raise the fork to my mouth . I could not get satisfied no matter how much I ate, but I think that may have a lot to do with the pain meds (munchies ).

You probably want to prepare for not feeling well enough to eat, or being fine and having a normal appetite.

Good luck on your surgery!

Hey! I think it depends on how you handle the surgery. I read a lot of things on JBI that said crackers, 7up, pudding, and applesauce. So, I stocked up on those things a few days before. Turned out I was ok after surgery and went out to eat 2 hrs after haha. I never expected for that to happen. Granted it was at Luby's where I could pick and choose what I wanted to eat and they did have Jello which was appetizing. The next day i went out to eat for lunch and dinner and had oatmeal for breakfast...the crackers and things I bought are still sitting in my fridge and pantry haha. I am glad I had them, but my point is you wont know what you will feel like eating until it is all said and done. I never had a problem getting regular food down.

My kinda girl! I love food! That all sounds so good. Too bad you couldn't eat it! lol But I was starving. I wanted to eat everything in site but my boyfriend kept giving me applesauce. I wanted to throw it in his face after a while. I wanted some real food! haha Today is better though. I got to eat something other than applesauce!

After my first surgery my PS said I could eat anything my heart desired! It's always good to stock up on things that will help your tummy if needed. The first two days I ate lots of normal type of food than on my 3rd day, I think, I got really nauseous and couldn't even eat toast and the smell or sight of anything just did not help!

I would prepare the idea that you will be able to eat anything and eat it as soon as you're hungry. But make sure you have some good tummy comforting food (soup, ginger ale).

Also with lots of the pain meds and antibiotics, you need to make sure you DON'T have an empty stomach! So eat whenever and whatever you like

I could eat regular food the night of my surgery (surgery was early morning). I wasn't awake or hungry before then.

I did make sure to eat something with every pill I took, as I get nauseous very easily with meds. I had single-serve size applesauce, yogurts, and puddings that I ate with meds.

I also made sure to eat high fiber foods, to combat constipation from anesthesia and pain meds (they can back. you. up.). (tmi, i know, but true!)

I lived of the Keebler cheese crackers with peanut butter and green tea for three days after my surgery. I would have a cracker sandwich every two hours when I took my meds and then I would pass back out. Then, on day 3 when I finished/stopped taking any prescription meds, I ate the ways I always eat.

Post surgery,
I was STARVED.

I completely ignored my PS's recommendations about
eating foods that'd be light on the stomach
(crackers, soup, ginger ale, etc)
and went right to Popeye's! Lol.

Needless to say,
I was filled up, but I paid for it later.
The meds made me super nauseous,
but I did eat a lot of heavier foods along with my soups and such.

I guess it depends on how you feel
and how your meds affect you.

My PS told me to start out with liquids. If I handled that ok, he told me to try soups, jello, etc. If that went ok, he said I could consume regular food.

My doc said eat lots of FIBER like greens and such bc it uts down on the constipation that you get post surgery due to the anesthisia. I use MAGNESIAM CITRATE (the red liquid stuff) its a liquid laxative you can get anywhere. works amazing

Everyone is different and it depends on what you can handle after surgery. I was really good with yogurt and/or bananas when I was taking meds (helped me with nausea). Otherwise I ate normally - just not as much as usual and I avoided greasy/heavy food for a few days as it did not appeal to me.
