I am 3 weeks post op.. I’m starting to worry myself about getting enough Protein, nutrients, calories, and Water in a day. I’m scared to consume too many calories, but I want to get enough.. what are your alls suggestions? (I’ve been on solid foods for a week)

What does your Dr say? It seems everyone's program is different. For the first several months mine said to focus on Protein and liquids only, not to worry about calories.

I don't have a calorie restriction right now - I just have to do 60g of Protein and 64 oz fluids plus fruits/veggies. I find that I fluctuate between 700-1000 calories depending on the day. I have a nutrition group tomorrow and I want to ask because I keep seeing what everyone else is doing calorie wise and I don't want to be screwing this up.
