Talk to your Surgeon: This is something that should be discussed with your surgeon. Some surgeons like to keep their patients on liquids for 2 to 3 weeks after their gastric bypass procedure whereas others will feed them small amount of solid foods a little sooner. It's important that you follow up with your surgeon and see what he recommends.
