I am really struggling to get my Protein in, any suggestions?
I’ve tried adding unflavored Protein Powder (ISOPURE) to Premier Protein shakes in the blender to boost the Protein but not the Fluid volume. Also, Dymatize ISO-clear protein Water is helpful. It’s pretty sweet, so I cut it with water and sip on it. Constantly sipping....It’s a full time job! I hope this helps!

Thank you, I hadn’t heard of these products, I will definitely try them. Getting fluids in is a full time job. Thanks again, good luck with your weight loss.
You’re so welcome! I ordered both products on Amazon by the way. Best of luck to you too! 👊🏼👏🏼

So, I had surgery on the 12th. I came home on the 14th. I am sore, of course but, I’ve noticed this afternoon, an almost pulling like sensation where my stomach meets my esophagus. It doesn’t really feel like heartburn, more of a soreness in there. When I eat and drink I can feel it. I’m wondering if it’s my staple line? Does this sound familiar to anyone?

@Irisheyes2 It is hard at first to get the amount of Fluid in that they want us to. I've been around 40oz but today got a bit further. I havn't been able to get all my Protein in either but I'm not worried about it. I noticed it's getting better as each day goes by so I know it will eventually get there. Just take your time with it and worry about the fluid oz in over the protein. Today I boiled some Bone Broth with onions and carrots, a dash of onion and garlic powder and a small sprinkle of red pepper flake. I strained it after and drank it warm. It was 100% better than the plain broth I've been having these last few days and I think drinking it warm made it go down so much easier.

Best of luck to you!!!!

@Bellasoo Sorry I can't really give you any help on what your feeling as I havn't experienced it myself. I doubt it's the staple line though. I'm pretty sure the staple line is on the bottom of the stomach. Maybe it's your stomach being full that you are feeling? I had a guy at my surgeon's office tell me he had a similar feeling and that was his marker to stop eating. If you are concerned call your surgeon team. There is no reason not to, Better safe than sorry.

Good Luck!!!!

So I had surgery July 2nd. Everything is trucking along but now, I get incredibly belchy while eat my liquid meals. And, I think I’ve fallen victim to the 3 week stall. In fact, my weight went up a half pound between today and yesterday and a half pound between Monday and Tuesday. Yeah, I don’t really have a question, just wallowing in my own self pity.

I am in the same boat...surgery was June 27 and I have stalled this week as well as gained a pound. Frustrating and just trying not to get discouraged!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
