I've read a lot of others posts pertaining to Post-Op diets, but I am somewhat confused still about the liquid stage and protein drinks.

My question is: Are we allowed to add stuff (fruits, PB, syrups, yogurt, SF jello powders, etc...) into our protein drinks/shakes in the full liquid stage?

I CANNOT stand the smell or after taste of the protein drinks, but have found that if I can add a little PB, syrup, etc...I can handle it.

Yes you can add those things. You aren't supposed to have any chunks so put it in a blender if you're putting chunks of fruit in there. The SF syrups work great for this!

My nutritionist didn't advise putting anything into the protein shake. i was having problems, gagging and vomiting and she suggested Unjury protein shakes, which you can only get online It took getting used to, but it is not that bad, chocolate splender is the best. Had my surgery 2 weeks ago, 24 pounds down!! good luck

Yes...Unjury are the one's I have. I like the Chicken Soup, but all the others stink and have a bad after taste. Granted, they're not as bad as others I've tried, but they're still ooh. Just thought if I could add some syrup or fruit I could drink them with no problem.

I used and still use Bariatric Advantage Protein in Vanilla and Chocolate. . I love adding PB to the chocolate one (makes it taste like a reeses peanutbutter cup) but use the smooth PB if your going to do that. . . I also love to add different flavored extracts to the vanilla one and pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg to it. . . tastes really yum. . . try mixing the vanilla protein powder to a vanilla greek yogurt, that is my favorite thing ever! Good luck!

Yesterday I added a small teaspoon of instant decaf coffee to my vanilla shake. It was very good. I also invested in a very good blender so my shakes are really like soft milk shakes which make them fun (er) to drink. My doc said I had to avoid any chunks, seeds, peelings or anything that would make my stomach work hard.
Easy does it!

I use a Majic Bullet to make shakes. Mango seems to cover the taste of the whey for me.

I can't stand the taste of those either plus the grittiness and thickness makes me gag.

My doctor recommended these (Isopure zero carb water) and I really like them. They taste like vitamin waters: http://www.gnc.com/p...oductId=2612796

He said these are great for all stages of my diet pre and post surgery. You should give them a try.
