Week three after gastric sleeve surgery is an exciting time because if all goes well, you get to transition to semi-solid soft and mushy foods.
Note: This is typically called stage 3 or phase 3 in the diet after gastric sleeve surgery.
After two weeks of liquids and foods with no textures, I was more than happy to move on. Since I’m complicated and have autoimmune issues, this transition didn’t go as smoothly as it should have.
As a result, I had to change my mindset, eat slower and chew, chew, chew, and oh yeah, have an endoscopy!
An upper endoscopy is a procedure used to visually examine your upper digestive system with a tiny camera on the end of a long, flexible tube. A specialist in diseases of the digestive system (gastroenterologist) uses an endoscopy to diagnose and, sometimes, treat conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestine (duodenum).
The good news? I was sedated during the procedure. LOL
