Not very much! Seems like some days it took me all day to finish one shake!

That’s how I feel, it’s hard. They expect me to drink two a day. But I feel full all the time. I’m a week post op

I was able to get 2 down of the milky ones - but I didn't feel resctriction with liquids.

I also ordered a lemonade flavoured one that could be added to the Water I was already drinking.

I kind of wish I'd ordered it as I'm out of the lemonade mood the last few days, LOL.

I am 2 weeks post op, and started out using the chocolate Premier Protein. It was hard to get the volume down, but it started to taste soooooo sweet - like chocolate Syrup. I also had unbelievable explosive gas/stool that was smelly, unpredictable, and very unpleasant. Prior to surgery I had given up sugar and all artificial sweetners, colors, and flavoring. I think I was reacting to the very artificially flavored PP. I switched to a very pure powdered Protein that I mix myself with half the volume. I am using BioChem 100% whey isolate Protein that I got at Whole Foods. Nothing artificial in it. The gas stopped by the next day and the lower volume is easier to get down. Now my poor husband has to return 4 cases of Premier Protein.

I had the same gassy problem with Premier Protein and decided it was the lactose... I think I can eat yogurt and cheese, but high concentration of lactose sends me running to the bathroom!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
