Post Op Week One – Bariatrics

Once Bariatric surgery is complete, a strict post-op diet plan needs to be followed. There is now a staple line in your stomach that must be allowed to heal. Certain foods can disrupt the healing process, put undue stress on the staple line, and lead to a leak.

The diet for a post-op bariatric patients consists of four stages: , Clear Liquids, Pureed Foods, Soft Foods and Solid Foods.

Let’s chat about Week 1 which is clear liquids.

For 1 to 7 days after bariatric surgery, only clear liquids are to be consumed at the rate of one to two ounces per hour.

Clear liquids include the following items:

• water
• fat-free milk
• fat-free broth
• sugar-free jello
• sugar free popsicles
• low sugar juices
• low sugar gatorade

It’s important to follow the post op diet to promote healing to occur.  Upon scheduling we will provide you with a detailed list of the four stages post op and what you should be consuming at each stage.
