New to this. Got gastric bypass 11/24/2020. 5 weeks tomorrow. What can most people eat at this time? Breakfast seems ok. Dr told me to start meat, fish and ground turkey approximately 2 weeks after surgery. I threw it all up. No bueno. Trying again at 5 weeks. Help.

I was just told to eat "anything you can tolerate" from two weeks post-op.  I really had very few problems, just scrambled eggs, which even at over three years out I can struggle with. Just take it easy and try different textures. If something doesn't go down well initially, wait a couple of weeks then try again. Everyone is unique when it comes to their food progression tolerance. Just make sure you take really small bites and chew well before swallowing.

Go slow.  And chew well.  If you don’t tolerate something, give it time and try again.  If something doesn’t agree with you I find papaya enzymes (chewable and found in the vitamin section). Help to dissolve food..
