Protein Shake is Stuck?!?!



Recommended Posts

So I just had a Protein shake for the first time (i'm 16 days post op) and it feels like it's stuck in my esophagus!! Ugh it's the grossest feeling in the world! I don't know if I drank it too fast (took me about an hour and normal liquids go down faster than that) but I'm really acidy and am scared to burp because it feels like it will come back up.

Anyone else experienced this? How long for the icky feeling to go away?

How many ounces did you have?

Try walking... it might help

Do you guys recommend the RTD (Ready to drink) Protein shakes like Muscle Milk(32g), EAS Myoplex (42g), Met-Rx Protein Plus (51g), Pure Protein 35 (35g), or Premeir Protein (30g)?

Or should I use Protein powder mixes? I want to make this as easy as possible to stick to so I was thinking about stocking up on the RTDs.

I agree with others, sounds like you drank too fast. Remember is super tiny, small sips at first. Walking may help.

I use a variety of both. I find the ready made ones are convenient for taking places but the powders are a berltter price and I have some variety with flavors and recipes.

Ugh, thank you everyone. It finally went down. I tried walking around and that helped. I'm not sure if it was too fast or too much but next time I will go a lot slower and only have 4oz instead of the 10oz :)

Try Gas-X when it happens again! Works every time with a bit of walking.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
