For the first couple of weeks, I was on liquids.  That includes herbal teas, broths, protein shakes, sugar-free gelatin and sugar-free non-carbonated drinks.

After my 2-wk post-op visit with the doctor, I was able to add puree foods like cottage cheese, yogurt, thicker soups (contents pureed) and soft-scrambled eggs.

After that, your doctor should have you work with a nutritionist for the rest of your after care.

Of course, above all else, make sure you get in your protein, I try for at least 70 grams a day.  You may not be able to get it all in at first, but it gets easier.



(Edit:  I just noticed your surgery type is DS.  I'm not sure if your initial diet will vary because of that, as I got the sleeve.)
