@@dmw0621 - yes, I haven't had a stomach discomfort at all, but my bariatric team modified my liquids so that I only drink Water, clear broth, herbal tea and Jello. I was told that for me, the blander the better but I'll let you know if anything changes tomorrow as I start my phase two which is shakes although my doctor isn't pushing the Protein Powder yet. I'll be able to drink non-fat milk, shakes with natural fruit , yogurt, thin cream of wheat or rice and pumpkin and sweet potato Soup.

Alexis99, I'm on a similar preop diet (12/21).

Premier Protein (NOT to be confused with Pure Protein) shakes are awesome. They have 30g of Protein and 1g of sugar. I got a case of vanilla and a case of chocolate at costco, but at Walmart you can get them in banana, caramel and strawberry. attachicon.gif ImageUploadedByBariatricPal1481082084.723836.jpgattachicon.gif ImageUploadedByBariatricPal1481082103.907753.jpg

DMW, I choked mine down. I sure wish we could talk about our TJs faves but it just seems like torture right now. Wonder if we'll still like any of it when all's said and done. Got some turkey bone broth at Super Target yesterday, haven't tried it yet.

I read in a book ("The Sleeved Life") that it's not unusual to not lose weight the first week or two after surgery because of all the IV fluids you're given at the hospital. The author of the book says a lot of people are surprised when the scale shows their weight hasnt changed, and they fear that their surgery didn't work. Once that excess Fluid they gave you leaves your body, you see the number on scale go down. I'm not sure if this happens to everyone, but if it happens to anyone here, just remember that.

I learned at my preop class that Eas Myoplex not only has more calories but has 42g Protein per serving. I'm switching up the Premier Protein (I love the vanilla even postop) with the chocolate fudge Eas Myoplex. I also got Genepure unflavored Protein, mix it with room temp Water, then microwave it and add beef bouillon while its hot. I'm postop day 3 and got 92g protein in, 540 calories, and 88oz Fluid for the day! Preop I only had I day of Clear Liquids and 6 days of a very limited diet (including food for liver shrinkage). They still used a liver retractor which caused more postop pain, but it's not so bad here on the other side!

Hallejillyah - My GENEPRO arrived yesterday but I haven't had the chance to try to yet. Is it legit tasteless and dissolves well? My pre-op diet was the same as yours! My surgery is at 1100(est) time today! I think I'm ready!

@@bananashake I have so many TJ's favs I get excited just thinking about it. I have my freezer stocked with the fish nuggets my entire fam likes them. The stuffed lobster is in the feezer as well. I also like the orange chicken, teriyaki chicken, chicken fried rice, organic ketchup, cheese curls and puffs, garlic olive oil, dried fruits, etc. I also like their multi Vitamins and body butter. They are not on my side of town because I'm in a more rural area so when I go I really stock up .

As far as my post op exp. I have my good days and my bad days. My biggest challenge is trying to stay hydrated. Today was one of my worst days yet. I felt like i did well with liquids yesterday and my urine was light yellow however this a.m. my urine was amber. So now I'm thinking that I should also try drinking liquids throughout the night.

SassyMedic GENEPRO isn't completely tasteless and there may be some clumping. I slowly mix it in and if there are clumps let them sit for a few minutes and then keep mixing until there aren't anymore visible clumps. Hope you're feeling great soon! I'm POD 4 and still sore, but I don't think I've taken it easy enough. I relaxed a lot today.

Hallejillyah - Is the taste bad or just noticeable? I got the go ahead to add it to my diet on Friday.

dmw - I kept waking up every 3 hours or so last night and I would sip Water each time I woke up. My surgeon claims they pumped me with enough Fluid so it would be impossible to get dehydrated in the next couple of days but I still am worried about getting behind the eight ball on that!

I am 2 days post op and so far ok. Being home and being able to sleep in my own bed made a huge difference! I felt great when I got up this morning but halfway through my shower started feeling bad. I've learned I'm not a fan of broth. Because my blood sugar was running on the low end in the hospital I'm allowed watered down juice once an hour so I've been switching between that and Water. Once I start on the Protein shakes though no more juice. Yesterday evening the pain was the worst. Today its much better. I'm sure getting a decent nights sleep made a huge difference. Most of my pain today is in my upper left quadrant of my abdomen and my back, across the area your bra would sit. The back pain is what has really bothered me and what I was not expecting! My surgeon said some people have it and some people don't but its from the surgery being so close to the spine.

Psychologically seeing food on TV or when my husband eats (I swear it feels like he's eating every five minutes) is messing with me. I'm not hungry but I feel like I want to eat or should be eating if that makes any sense. I am looking forward to tomorrow evening when I can try the Protein shake!

I don't think the taste is bad at all, SassyMedic. I put it in Kool Aid and in broth, and I even made a great Decaf chai tea the other day with it and added a small amount of vanilla Premier Protein shake to finish it off. I made the hot tea the night before with Celestial brand Decaf Mountain Chai 3 bags and let it sit out at room temp all night. Then I woke in the morn and out the tablespoon of GENEPRO in. It looked clumpy but I kept mixing with a fork and then went to take a shower. When I was done with the shower it was completely dissolved and no clumps, added the vanilla shake and put it in a coffee mug to take to my therapist appt. over 30g Protein in that puppy and it was delicious!

SassyMedic -- seeing food is messing with me too. What you said makes perfect sense. I was able to have the Protein shake very soon after surgery and it's been a part of the routine ever since. I highly recommend these little 2oz mason jars from Dollar Tree. It's $1 for 2 of them and I have about 30 of them -- I fill them up with all the Protein Shake I want and hydrating fluids and when my 15 min timer goes off I know exactly how much to drink. Gonna let my nutritionist in on this gem.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
