    Four weeks post op after sleeve- what are you eating?

    Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I don't know how to bump up my calories either. This is definitely not easy to figure out the balance.

    3.5 weeks post op and can’t stomach protein drinks

    I just got a vegan protein powder at GNC because I was having the same problem. One day I was fine and the next I was almost doubled over from stomach cramps after having a few drinks of my shake. From what I've read you can develop lactose intolerance after surgery. I'm hoping it is not permanent, but I haven't had any trouble so far with these vegan shakes that aren't milk based. They are super expensive though so I'm looking for a better deal on amazon.
  3. I had my surgery on 7/9 and I felt exactly the same way the first week. Sometime during the second week it gets easier. It seems like you are able to intake a little more fluid at a time. That first week your sips are so tiny that you aren't getting anywhere near the amount of fluid you are supposed to have.

    This was going to be one of my questions. I had my surgery on July 9th and joined the group today. I tookk 1 week off, worked from home for a week, and I'm back in the office this week. I made it through yesterday okay, but feel completely exhausted today. Yesterday was two weeks from my surgery and I'm wondering if I tried to jump back in too fast.
