I had a similar problem. I couldn't stomach any Protein Shakes. I ate high Protein yogurt and drank fairlife milk. I divided the milk into 4oz portions. I also drank Campbell's chicken noodle Soup broth only. It filled my insides and made me feel better. Good luck!

That’s so unbelievably irresponsible! I had the same issues after my shoulder surgery. My surgeon’s residents failed to page her when they should have. I almost filed a complaint but it worked out.

Protein wise there are so many options. Progenix is really good but pricey. Cookies and cream is like ice cream. Sometimes I even freeze it and eat with a spoon. Get some unflavored to add to soft foods you eat and I just got 2 protein powders that dissolve clear but no report back on taste. Don’t give up. I like premier but also like making shakes with better tasting powders. I add it to protein milk for an extra boost.

Instead of Peanut Butter go pick up some PB2! That way its more concentrated Protein, way less fat and you can thin it to the consistency that is safe. Same thing with yogurt, thin it with high protein milk like Fairlife.

PB2 is amazing! I make a shake with PB2, honey, strawberries, banana, double scoop of whey, almond milk and Greek yogurt. So much protein and Vitamins and then I freeze it to be “ice cream”

Where do you guys buy PB2? I am sure I can get it online, but is it in any local grocery store chains?

Also could probably try nonfat cottage cheese. What Protein Shakes do you have that you don't like? There's so many options. I will forever hawk NowSports Soy Protein Isolate off Amazon. lol. Getting in fluids is more important right now than meeting protein goals.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
