you probably aren't getting enough Water. try to get in as much as possible(and I know it is not easy)

Also, my doctor had me on sugar free carnation instant Breakfast mixed with skim milk, that was my saving grace, took me all day to drink one, but it helped me feel better.

Good Luck, it does get better :)

It took me a total of 4 weeks to really start feeling like myself again. I still have to pay attention to my body because when it tells me I need to rest, it means NOW :) Give yourself time and be kind to yourself.

part of leaving the hospital was I had to keep down 2 oz of this, so I was able to have it 2 days after surgery. You should be fine. Just check around the stores before you go, a lot of them don't carry the sugar free kind.

Really hope you start to feel better, the first week was pretty tough for me and once I was allowed purees I think that was my turning point. Hang in there.

I'm curious, where you are and what doctor told you not to have Protein for 7 days? No wonder you're weak!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
