Well I tried soft scrambled eggs... Those came right back up :wacko:

Then I tried some soft cooked peas and carrots and gave me heartburn from hell....

Soooo..... I bought a creamy Peanut Butter Protein bar( the kind with no chunks of nuts or anything crunchy in it) and, as long as I chew it slowly, it has been the best way to get my protein in.

Hmm....only tip I have is make sure you have the foods you need for your diet afterwards. I actually found infant rice Cereal to be the most soothing thing to eat for the first week. Mix it with milk and you get a little protien. I'll be honest though...

The first two days after surgery it was absolutely excruciating just to swallow Water. I actually thought something was wrong but my doctor assured me it was just from all the swelling.

Make sure you have good post op pain drugs! :1312_thumbsup_tone3:
