  1. I'm just curious what would actually happen if I ate something solid while I'm still on my full-liquid diet. I've had refried Beans and pureed avocado, and I tolerated it just fine. I'm two weeks out, and I'm only supposed to be eating cream of wheat (which I hate), and other equally boring mush. I had a few spoonfuls of soft beans, and I didn't get sick or anything. Have any of you started eating solids before you were supposed to?
  2. I forgot to mention that I add a scoop of protein powder to the pudding when I'm mixing it in the blender :-)
  3. Thanks everybody for your replies. I'm right past week two and doing much better. I've been creative with my diet now, and have come up with a few new things to keep from getting really bored and hungry. I got so sick of broth, I had to stop it. I'm on full liquids now, so I can expand my diet a lot. Here are some of my new "recipes": Lowfat milk with vanilla Protein powder, but I add flavored extracts, such as banana or orange, toss in some ice and now I have a smoothie. Sometimes I add a half of a banana (shhhhh). A can of low-sodium V8, with a pinch of garlic, a teaspoon of hot sauce (shhhh) and a teaspoon of steak sauce (sounds gross, but it's not). Pour it over ice, and add a celery stick. You can't eat the celery, but it makes you think you're drinking a Bloody Mary I mix a can of Cream of Broccoli soup, and a can of Cheddar cheese soup, both made with milk, in the same pot. Add pepper, and pour into small storage containers. When you want one, just pop it into the microwave. This is the best one: I found Cheesecake flavored Sugar Free/Fat Free pudding at Target. I made a whole package with cold milk, and poured into small plastic storage containers, and let it set. Then I put an entire package of fresh strawberries into the blender with a shot of liquid Vitamins, a couple shots of diet-cranberry juice, a packet of Sweet & Low, and pureed it. Once the pudding was solid, I opened the containers, and poured the strawberry puree over it. Now you have Sugar/fat free cheesecake, with pure strawberry puree! DEE-LISH!!! I got some really high-volume protein and Vitamin supplements, too: http://www.amazon.com/WHEY-Liquid-Protein-Acai-Berry/dp/B002GU6W54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335563462&sr=8-1 http://www.amazon.com/Century-Systems-Miracle-Nutrition-liquid/dp/B00013Z1V4/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1335563706&sr=1-1
  4. Thanks, Felicity! First of all, good luck! I have to be honest: I thought my surgery was going to be traumatic, but it wasn't. At all. It was fast and easy. I was released the next day, and only suffered a little. You will have pain, but most of that comes from your drain tube. It's not so bad. But hunger? Wow! It's horrible! G
  5. Is this normal? I'm brand new to this forum, and this is my first post. I had my surgery 4 days ago, and I have never experienced this level of starvation. I'm sipping broth, light juice, and diet jello. But I swear I've never been this hungry and it feels like torture. Is this the way it's supposed to be? Are we supposed to suffer this way? Have any of you been prescribed an appetite supressant? I don't think I can do this for four more weeks. I am one step away from Cheeseburger-ville!
