    Thanks for your concern! I was in more pain than I thought I would be. Almost unbearable when I woke up in recovery. Once the pain meds kicked in it wasn't nearly as bad. Removing the JP drain was also a terribly weird feeling that included pain. I think the reason why I was in more pain, was because I was expecting it to be quite a bit easier than it was. I read many things and everyone was saying how it wasn't that bad etc. So I wasn't expecting the severe pain. I'm only telling you this so you can possibly prepare yourself. I feel if I would have read about how painful it was I could have better prepared myself mentally. Everyone's different so you may not experience the pain I had. Just know it will pass, and it will be worth it in the end! I know I keep telling myself that.

    Thank you so much. You've eased my mind a bit from worry. Hopefully it will get easier to get the complete amount of Protein Shakes in in a few days. Im still going t try, but I will definitely focus on the fluids.

    I think it's all varies and depends on genetics. I'm only 26 and have 80 pounds to lose, but I already know I will have loose skin. My skin is covered in stretch marks, and does not have good elasticity as others. Oh well! Think of it on more of a positive side. I'd rather be thin and in shape with loose skin than overweight and unhealthy for the rest of my life.

    Honestly, everyone is different and how they are able to take liquids and Protein Shakes changes from person to person. My doctor gave me the recommended 2 shakes and 64 oz once I was two weeks post op. However, I was not able to stomach my Protein shakes and they made me very sick. So my clear liquid diet lasted 2 weeks. With the second week was me getting in the 64oz Water needed. I took protein shots to get in the protein.
    My advise is to try to get as much as you can in. If you cannot finish the rest do not force it. You will make yourself sick.

    Hi everyone! So I've creeped along the forum for some time now, but have never posted anything. Well I just had my Sleeve done June 28th, and today is my first day home. I'm suppose to drink 2 Protein Shakes a day, and I'm struggling. I've drank 1 and it took me almost all day, but this second one is killing me. If I tried to drink this and finish it, I think I will be up all night long. I also have to drink my Water to get the 2 liters a day. I know everyone's diets post op are different, but what if I'm unable to finish it? I'm going to try, but I'm nervous I'll be unable to. The thought of doing this all over again tomorrow and the following week is making me so nervous. Did anyone struggle with the 2 shakes a day? Any tips or advice? Also is it totally terrible if I'm unable to finish this second one? Sorry for all the questions, I don't know who else to ask.
