Thank you very much but it's difficult to only drink for a couple weeks before surgery hanging in there. 7 Days on liquids now I'm down 18 pounds which will make it a lot easier for surgery. Hope all is well with you.

I live in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. Maybe we could email each other, especially since our surgery date and stats are so close. I used to live near Bel Air. My email is annbehan47@gmail.com.

I'm 61 and had my sleeve surgery on July 5th. Tomorrow I start my pureed phase, and I can't wait! I lost 20 pounds before surgery and 10 pounds since. The surgery went really well for me...no complications. Had surgery on Wednesday and was back to work on Monday. My trouble is trying to get all the Protein in. So tired of the shakes. Can't wait to have some scrambled egg tomorrow.

Ellie2: can you also have Soup, Jello?

I was able to have Soups, and basically anything that could pass through a straw (without using the straw)! I ended up having cream soups and I would add nonfat yogurt to it so it would increase my Protein intake.

Getting enough protein: try putting unflavored Protein Powder into your cooked cereals, creamed Soups, as well as getting Protein in shakes. Also, I found that as soon as I was able, I preferred to have a lightly poached egg, rather than scrambled. When the egg was too cooked, it seemed difficult to get down. (That was really early on) No trouble now at 5 months after surgery. tuna and cottage cheese with some capers or olives to give me the salt flavor, and dill, was a favorite in the pureed stage. I was able to tolerate canned chicken before whole chicken.

At almost 6 months, I can pretty much eat anything now, just amount and volume is still very small, which is the whole idea, right? I still try to have protein between meals.

I am 62 & had my sleeve done on 7/10. I too am having a hard time getting in the 3 Protein Shakes plus the all the Water. I am eating mashed cauliflower, scrambled eggs, hummus, pea & lentil Soup, beef consommé which is salty, low fat cottage & part skim ricotta cheese. Today 1/4 mashed banana w/ tbsp of plain fat free Greek yogurt. But it's like midnight before I can get all my Protein & liquid requirements in plus the Vitamin supplements schedule. I went back to work yesterday & I am hoping I can get a better routine going!!!!!!
