Hey barngirl I was sleeved aswell' date=' I May 1st to be exact and have yet to have Protein Drinks, I thought that while you're on Clear Liquids you're not supposed to have Protein Shakes. Which one's are you having?[/quote']

My doctor had me start w Protein as soon as I left the hospital. I use pro stat 64- it's a liquid that 2 tablespoons has 15 grams of protein so that's about a one ounce drink. I mix a little Water and apple juice and take it as a 2 oz drink that I'm supposed to have.

How are you feeling? It's so strange that you feel can feel "beat up" but spool much better than the first 2days it's kinda like childbirth -after a while you don't remember the pain.

I'm still on pain meds and something for nausea and I don't seem to sleep that long or that well.

Good luck!!!!

I will be praying for you that May 11th happens!

Oh & sorry about the menstrual cycle. I read other people on here said it happened & they were fine. But it did worry me a little too.

As for me' date=' I am doing horrible on my pre-op diet. :wacko: Kids had pizza & cake today at their birthday party & I caved & had a whole slice of pizza. Ugh. Wasn't even worth it.

Monday I start my liquid only diet, so then I REALLY have to buckle down & get more serious!!![/quote']

my pre op diet only consists of 5 days Clear liquids so I started that today. yesterday I didn't pig out or anything... kinda didnt even want to eat. today I've had a special k Protein Water, chicken broth, and like 4 pop cycles I made from pink lemonade. no Jello yet cause I heard eating red Jello will change the color of your insides and they will think you're internally bleeding so I'm gonna wait until I call surgeons office tomorrow before I eat the jello I made Friday. good luck with liquids tomorrow and let me know how it goes!!

I am scheduled may 11 but no word from insurance yet for approval. I called fri an they said it hasn't even been assigned to a case manger yet. I fear my date is not going to happen. If that the case I am heading to a buffet! This past week was hard. Hardly eating I did loose about 7 pounds but still.

Also (a little personal) I am getting a little freaked cause I will have my menstrual cycle for may 11. That is gonna stink! Pls pray may 11 really happens for me

I'm scheduled for Friday as well!! I hope you get approved soon! let me know how it goes :)

All my doctor told me was that I had to be on clear liquids for two weeks. There was no mention of Protein shakes so I assumed I was not to drink it. As far as how I'm feeling I'm doing pretty good been having really soft liquidity stools (sorry for the explicit info) and some inflammation on my stomach. But I am drinking liquids aswell as Jello.

I don't have any kids so don't know what that feels like :-(. But please keep in touch so we can share our experiences

Everyone is different so follow what your doctor tells you as far as Protein is concerned. I'm glad your brought up the liquid stools-me too! I know it's gross but I was gonna ask about this- for me it's when I have gas.... This is good though, most if the time after surgery and pain meds the opposite happens and one ends up having to take an enima.. So I think we are on a good track.

I feel 1000% better than I did on Thursday right after surgery, another 1000% better than Friday, which was better than Thursday- uncomfortable and nauseous. I can walk around today, getting up is easier and I'm sticking to my 2oz of fluids per hour and taking my pain and anti nausea meds as prescribed.

I wish you much success!!!! And I hope your feeling good!

Is anyone afraid that they are making the right decision? I am. I want to be thinner and healthier more then you can imagine. Being on this prep diet do a week and half and lost 12 pounds. I say should I just keep soon this? Then I say. But I want real food. I am getting so confussed. I guess I also want to know say a year from surg what can we really eat? I haven't gotten a real answer from previous sleeve people. In will post again. I know Protein first but I wanna hear. Do you eat half a sandwich do you eat a cup of Pasta do you eat half egg omelet. Sorry I am saying all this. But I a scared!

Thanks for listening

I feel the same way at times, you are not alone! I would be worried if you did not sometimes question it, its a life changing surgery. I talk about my fears in my last you tube video. Good luck, hangin there, you will know if its the right decision for you!

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️

      I started my 10 day pre op diet yesterday I need flavor!! I'm not big on the chocolate protein shakes so I just got to use up what I have was thinking about freezing it to make it like a ice cream so its something I can chew a little. Idk this is hard but I know I can do it just need to find new things to try

        You can try. I've read other people have had good results with protein-shake popsicles, etc. My personal experience with it? Sucked.

        I tried making 'fudgesicles' with a couple different flavors of a premade shake, as well as a protein powder I blended myself and all of them came out revolting? The powder ones, all the protein sunk to the middle; the premade shakes, the popsicle had a disgusting texture and the protein seemed to leave a weird fluffy film on the outside? I couldn't stomach it.

        Maybe look into flavoring additives? I was able to have sugar-free coffee /soda syrup flavorings, sugar-free drink flavorings and baking additives like almond, rum or pepperment extract. The extracts helped me the most as they added no extra sweetener.

        On the other hand, if you can get your hands on an unflavored/unsweetened protein powder, the syrup flavorings are perfect. I love to use Boost "Just Protein" (which is unflavored) with milk and a Chai-flavored sugarfree syrup.

        Good luck!
