When I left the hospital my dr said to make sure I drank 60 mg of Protein a day some people can’t to start off with they say it should take you about 45 mins to drink th3 11 oz of Premier Protein shakes then after about y weeks you work your way up

@GlamgirlAt 9 days out liquids are much more important than Protein. (I didn't get to 50 grams of protein till I was bout 6 months out). Don't worry about the protein that much right now. Concentrate on the liquids to stay hydrated.

Most people do the 30 days = 30 grams, 60 days = 60 grams, etc., model. If you can do that you're ahead of the game.

I inquired about GENEPRO on the boards and a poster (big viffer) gave valuable info on it . Unfortunately I dont know how to paste it here but basically Genepro cannot deliver 30grams of Protein as advertised I also believe they have legal problems based on thier claims. As postop says concentrate on liquids at this point.

Not doing what's popular just doing what's Right.

@Glamgirlif you want to add Protein and aren't crazy about shakes (I had to drink one for the first 2 years till I could eat enough protein but YMMV) have you thought about un jury? (It's one word but when I type it as such it doesn't link to the correct product). I didn't love it but a lot of DSERS I know did and do.

We all learn these things one way or another. I thought GENEPRO was a genius find. Thankfully I was on this forum and was straightened out by one of the vets.

      Hi guys I'm so glad I found this page.  I'm having VSG this spring and could use all the support I can get!!!
      I'm documenting my journey on youtube, if you are interested in supporting and following my journey click the link posted. 
      I'm trying to find support groups and do this journey via youtube because my family is super small and close minded so I  literally have my husband and children's support only.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
