Hi I am 10 days away from surgery and having a horrible time with my liquid diet. I have had a stomach virus and Migraines severely. I am a diabetic and my feet are killing me. I think I have more cracks on them. So it's been hard to walk. Also loved the Premier shakes b4 I had to drink 2 a day. Now I can barely choke them down. So I guess I am looking for any advice what might help my nausea or migraines. This week is 2 shakes and 1 meal next week is full liquids. Any advice?

There is an over the counter medicine for nausea. It is called Emetrol and is in the isle with pepto bismol. For your migraines I found that Excedrin Migraine helps a lot. These 2 symptoms are made much worse if you are dehydrated. If you can, get some pedialite and sip on it as much as possible. You can try sugar free Jello and sugar free Popsicles too. Good luck!

Somewhere I picked up the suggestion to try microwaving your Protein Shakes. chocolate turns into hot chocolate, caramel turns into...hot caramel, and the vanilla can be mixed with coffee if you drink it (I don't) for a...what would that be? Cappuccino? Anyway, you get the idea.

Put it in a mug (DO NOT MICROWAVE Premier Protein shakes IN THEIR PACKAGING, IT LOOKS LIKE PAPER BUT IT CAUSES ARCING) and zap for 30 seconds. Stir. Keep heating and stirring in 30-second intervals until it's as hot as you like. Try adding some sugar free flavoring, maybe. Have fun with it! Get creative!

Hi I am in day two of the liver reduction diet and am also diabetic. I have had slight headaches but my doctor recommended Bariatric Advantage shakes they have a few good flavors such as the chocolate, orange cream, and iced latte. They are not as sweet or even sweet at all compared to the Premier Protein. I am also allowed 2 Snacks by the same company. I find that eating warm chicken broth or the sugarfree Jello helps. Good luck and keep on hanging in there it's all worth it !!

Be careful with Excedrin migraine, I believe it contains aspirin, which we shouldn't have pre-op. I believe it is a blood thinner.

Oh! My bad! I totally forgot about not having aspirin and ibuprofen. Sorry about that[emoji39]

Plus I add orange juice and vanilla extract to vanilla Protein shake with ice and make an orange julios

Oh that sounds good. Makes me think...peppermint extract? Orange extract? Didn't eggface have a Protein ice cream recipe?

Peppermint hot chocolate (protein drink) in the evening sounds nice! Maybe a Mexican hot chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon? I'll have to play around...(says me, who just drank one straight because I couldn't be bothered).

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
