Try collagen powder, it's usually about the same amount of Protein as whey shakes, and you can add it into other foods. It will also help with the Hair loss and skin elasticity. Power through, girl! You got this!

I took a lot of anti nausea & gasX the 1st 2 months post op. My daughter didn’t start feeling well until she could add eggs & soft foods after her surgery.

Just the thought of eggs makes me nauseous. I had a bad experience in month 2 with them and don't know if I'll ever get myself to try again.

I get my Protein from about half shakes and half food now. I hate Protein Shakes, but I manage one every morning, I've made it a routine. Wish I could just gulp it down and be done with it, but nope, gotta sip sip sip it.. ew

Just goes to show that we all are on our own journey. What works for someone might not work for every one. Listen to your body & do what’s right for you!

I remember this phase so well. I couldn’t stomach most Protein Drinks after surgery and still can’t drink Premier Protein without having instant bloating and cramps. I use a scoop of GENEPRO unflavored powder in my crystal light/ diet tea/ coffee.

Hang in there! I promise it gets better. It took me at least a month to start getting anywhere near my Fluid and Protein goals. Your body needs time to heal.

Premier Protein shake flavor banana and cream is very good. I was hesitant about the flavor but it puts a spin n weightloss shake. Try it. I also open it, sip it a bit then freeze it an eat as freeze.

I am just in my pre op diet phase. Surgery in 1 week 🤭. Anyway, I had bought whey Protein powder and it was awful!! I brought it back and switched it for Purely Inspired Organic Protein Powder. 100% plant based. Delicious ! No comparison They sell it at Walmart. Amazingly Amazon has it too, but it is almost 2x the price.
One week post OP today
... goodluck 2u!

I just got the caramel flavor Premier Protein and i love it. I'll check out the banana. I was hesitant to buy it but I'll take your recommendation. Thanks!

I'm in puree phase now and about to go to soft solids but still need to get that Protein in. I've been relying on greek yogurt as well so that's been a big help.

Thanks I'll check out genepro! I actually tried premier for the first time last week so it's okay for me now but now that you mention bloating. That could be the cause. I had one yesterday and was bloated and gassy all day and I think it's because of premier!

I think I'm getting enough Protein in now or close enough. I'm on pureed now and move up to soft solids in 4 days and I can't wait! These phases are a true test in patience and not trying to lose your mind with overthinking and anxiety. I keep trying to remind myself how far I've come. 3 weeks out from surgery and I lost 22lbs so I think I'm doing well now :)

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
