Protein shakes

Recommended Posts

Don’t tell my dr but I only had one Protein Shake a day. Ate turkey meat and eggs, heavy on the egg white, instead. But everyone is different and every doc has a different program. My liver was great and I lost weight too.

Has anyone not ever drank a Protein Shake?
My team do not recommend them and I have always been advised to get my Protein from food but reading threads everyone seems to drink them
Does anyone else NOT drink Protein Shakes

Most of us have a diet progression. This is to let your stomach heal after surgery. (Liquids, puree, soft foods, real foods) Most people struggle to get their Protein goal (60 to 100 grams) with Protein Shakes in the first stages.

you are two years out, Right? Hope you’re doing well and staying healthy,

      A week and a day since surgery. Last night was the first night I got actually sleep, clocking in 7 hours. Oddly enough it's left me tired all day, but I didn't nap.
      2 days ago my gas pains subsided (woohoo!)
      I have aches and pains and of course sharp little pains around all the incisions (6 + 1 where the drain was), and I can't take the tylenol with codeine because it makes me feel like I have vertigo.
      I have started the countdown mentally to my soft food stage starting on Monday. Looking forward to that, can't wait to see if eggs and cheese will still be my friends.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.
