My surgery was March 18th and I had a Protein shake yesterday 2 oz. of greek yogurt and chicken broth for dinner. It's amazing after only a few days! You are doing great if you are already doing the pureed stuff

I actually had a BM on day 2 so they wanted me to try to Protein Shake and yogurt before I left

I have since had 4 oz of a Protein shake this morning and everything has been fine! You will be fine

Just sip slowly. I also only made the 4 oz and it took me like 25 min to drink it all.

I had same problem, so I try 30ml every 15 min. It helped. Also very ice cold Water goes down better. I didn't like ice water before lol. I have to return my Unjury Protein the chicken Soup was good before but now I can't stand it!

My surgery was March 13, and I have been having Protein shakes, yogurt, Jello, chicken broth since day 2. I am allowed to start trying some puréed foods tomorrow, so will start with a very lightly, runny scrambled egg, and maybe some cottage cheese. I had hiccups the night of my surgery, and thought I was gonna die!! I haven't had them since. You might be going too fast on what you are eating. Your body may not be able to process that yet.

As for Protein Shakes, I love them, and mix up a blender full almost every morning, and drink on that all day. It helps me feel more energetic. I feel great, overall! I hope you can get rid of the hiccups, and get your fluids in! Good luck!!!

      I have been waiting over a month to get into the nutritionist. I have an appointment, but I would love any advice on what to do diet-wise to lose weight before surgery. Like most of you, I have also struggled with my weight and have successfully yo-yo dieted myself into the above 300lb range. I feel like eating in a calorie deficit at my weight, it should come off, but it hasn't been and I have been tracking my food too.  Thank you

        Hi, Mindy G, I am new here too, my surgery will not be until July or August, but I could use a friend. I see yours is coming up soon. Are you doing the liquid diet before surgery? How's it going?

        I would take any advice on what to do for weight loss before the surgery, I have my first nutritionist appointment on Feb 9th (the soonest I could get in). But I was 12 lbs heavier than what my doctor submitted as my weight to my insurance, so I have to lose that plus at least 10 more pounds and I am struggling.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good
