Hello, I'm new to the forum. I'm a 30 year old male who just had the laproscopic Heller myotomy with Toupet fundoplication. The surgeon said the surgery went well, and after 2 nights in the hospital I was discharged. I'm confused about diet because the surgeon and hospital staff said that I could resume a normal diet as soon as I got home. A nurse even said, "if you want a cheeseburger, just go for it". Literally every other resource online, including patient instructions on hospital webpages, says differently. I put myself on a liquid diet for the first 3 days after surgery. On the 4th day, I ate macaroni and cheese and was ok. Yesterday (5th day) I cooked fish and yams, and had a lot of stomach pain despite eating very slowly and chewing incredibly well. There's no way I can imagine myself eating a cheeseburger now just 6 days after surgery. Has anyone else on here been recommended an accelerated diet plan? What are your experiences with it? Have any of you disobeyed the discharge instructions and felt pain after eatign certain foods?
