Hi memi...i think thing is to find what works for you Fluid wise...warm, hot, ice cold etc...i learned hot works great for me..and get creative with fluids i got sick of mine real quick but doing ok now...i heard of Protein shots going to buy some tomorrow keep you all posted.

I love hot showers but they drain me the most..so in and out now...

Are you in pain or spasam...big difference in my book pain i was able to deal with spasam not so much...when i drank anything my belly spasmed... That hurt but rare now...maybe once or twice a day no nees to put more drugs in me....however on my right side i feel a tug when i stand up straight so i always have to be careful with that...

I think pain more than spasm. My back hurts, I walk hunched over. Trying not to do too many pain meds. I also suffer from rheumatoid arthritis so I am wondering if this slows down the healing process. Meeting with my RA Doctor next week.

I hate the pre made ones they taste gross to me...i buy Optimum Nutrition 100% Oats & whey powder... And mix in with powder pb2...i use soy, almond milk or Water depending on my taste for the day has 24 grams of Protein per scoop and fiber..with the soy or almond milk....plus....that with cottage cheese etc i get close to 60gms of protein in a day

As for the pain...stay ahead of it...

I haven't been that tired, take chewable vitamins , I took my pain meds as needed, my sipping has slowed down bad on my part, I have not ran into any problems with yogurt or cottage cheese, the only 2 things I have tried so far I'm going to try egg tomorrow puréed with tiny bit of mayo ,
