I am now 1 week post-op and maybe I can help.
Day 1-3: only water and ice and day 3 apple juice, beef/chicken broth and jello. From thereon it is a soft diet for upto 12 weeks that can include soup, mashed potato, jello, custard, yogurt and later on even mince (just no seasoning/spices except for a bit of salt), fine chicken.
So the liquid diet is only until post-op day 2 and thereafter anything that is soft and that she can tollerate.
You can google "Nissen Fundoplication diet" and will learn a lot more.
All the best and let me know if I can help with any further info.
