Hi everyone! I am having surgery in exactly one week from today (Nov. 2) and I couldn't be more excited. However, I am one week in on my pre-op liquid diet and I am crashing... bad.
I can't even stomach food anymore. I get approx. 300 calories a day from protein shakes, and even that leaves me nauseous. I feel super dizzy and exhausted all the time. I am so sick of broth and shakes!
Any advice on new "liquid" foods to try? Or even how to manage this stage? So far I've had: broth, protein shakes/powder, skim milk, sugar-free jello, and baby food once (🤢). I know I will probably have to just tough it out, but it can't hurt to try to get some new meal ideas, right? 🤷♀️
I am going through this process completely alone, so if anyone is currently dealing with the same issues right now, I would love to hear about your experiences!
