Athomas, I havent tried the New Whey Liquid Protein but it sounds yucky. I have tried the plain powered whey in and hate that too :-)

It tasted good but it did not agree with me..

Has anyone tried the New Whey liquid Protien ? If so how did you do with it? I had my sleeve done on the 16th I have doing pretty good with everything thing until today. When I tried the liquid protein... It did not agree with me at all.

You must I mean MUST dilute it. It's too much for our sleeves. My Dr gave me that tip.

I went back to work today. I'm in customer service so on the phone and typing all day. Did fairly well until about 4:30 when my shoulders got real tense and I got sleepy. My co-workers said I hit my wall. Think I'll sleep great tonight!

I am also getting sleeved on the 28th. The pre op diet sucks, but doing my best.

@@Peekboo I had hiatal repair too. I thought that contributed to the pain, but theory is out the window since you had the same procedure w/minimal pain

@Kathy812-

I didn't think I'd need the pain meds much, but boy was I wrong! I was on IV pain meds for 1st full day after, then switched to oral after dye test was okd & I even con't them at home for 1st few days, esp if I overdid & got too sore. I decided it was ok to use them- they were ordered for a reason. If you have pain- you're better off to treat it & keep moving than have it get so bad that you don't move & end up taking even more pain meds or getting complications. I also had my gallbladder remover which meant 2 more incisions- not sure if that made pain worse. But we all experience pain differently.

athomas - OMG I hate them !!!! They are horrid and sweet, and just gross? There has to be other things to get those Proteins ins !

Kathy - Oh geez, sorry for the pain !! Ice pack is good, walking and moving is super beneficial so you don’t get stiff. I’m not a good person to talk to about pain meds. They gave me morphine after surgery. As soon as I was completely alert I didn’t taken anymore. See if walking helps :)

Delta - see if HEB has some before you go. awww I can’t wait for you to get home to the hubby !! That’s great !!

Susan - So glad you’re doing better !!!!

Amy - Congrats on going back to work ! That’s awesome ! sleep well :)

Pink - welcome !!!! hang in there. It will be soooo well worth it !!


Chelle’s thoughts …

So tonight I went to the grocery store. I bought different Soups. So tonight I took a can of crab corn Soup. Added a cup of my double milk and blended until liquid. I had a cup of it which seems about half. So it was a flavorful way to get 10 grams of Protein. Now I’m really hope I’m not pushing my pouch. I mean it’s liquid… The way I understand it is if it falls off a spoon it’s liquid, if it stays, it’s a puree. It’s interesting how people think… I feel good. Not a bunch of energy, and I was tried today, but I feel good. So I’m questioning why I”m feeling good. Not happy with anything LOL. Also, thank you guys. You are such a great support team. Couldn’t have done any of this without you :) … okay, well I could have but it would have sucked :)

Well maybe that was the problem cause I did not dilute it...
