for the first couple of weeks, the requirements are similar - each type of surgery involves some serious cutting of the stomach [except for the lapband, but even that is an irritant for awhile]. therefore, the emphasis is on healing from surgery while not putting a lot of strain on your stomach. Check with your surgeon, but this process generally involves starting with clear liquids and then advancing to thicker ones, then purees. and of course you MUST figure out how to stay hydrated.
