Hi, my name is Julie, and I had RNY on March 13, 2015, so am still on the puréed/soft diet as well. I am having trouble getting my Protein and Water in. Any suggestions? I hope you all are doing well!

thank you Julie, i know it is very hard. i walk around with my Water like it is a child. I get my Protein by adding 2 scoops of Protein high alfa whey protein by ultimate that i purchased at the health food store. I add this to 2% lactose free milk with a few ice cubes and shake, i use the chocolate one. It is very good and no after taste.

Although i am sure everyone feels that yucky taste in their mouth as this is ketosis beibng on strickly protein. I cannot stand this taste and cannot wait to get rid of it.
What have you tried on your pureed soft diet?
Thank you

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        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! ❤️
