1 week post op, liquid diet



Recommended Posts

My surgery was a week ago today. I also found out that it made me lactose intolerant. I am struggling with not having anything but Fairlife Milk and Water all day every day. I know I can have broth and SF popcycles but I have a hard enough time getting in enough milk for my Protein. How have other people combatted this? All I can think about is how good something with flavor would taste!

What surgery did you get? And I wonder why they don’t allow you, this is the first time I hear this.

I have a coworker that also got lactose intolerant after surgery. She had good luck with Fairlife milk but if you feel you aren't hitting your Protein goals it would be a good idea to get plant based Protein Shakes or yogurts. You could also add the powdered Peanut Butter to your drinks. Good luck! That's rough!

I just liquified this recipe. I’m on full liquids and don’t want anything else sweet. I am in need of savory and cant stand chicken broth any longer. I left out the bacon, curry and red pepper flakes, and added unflavored Protein Powder. It was an awesome liquid dinner!

The hospital/program that I am going through does not let you do any sort of Protein Shake [emoji53] definitely limits my options!
Hmmm... my clinic doesn't recommend Protein Shakes for the pre OP liquid diet (they prefer Meal Replacement shakes like Glucerna or optifast), but post they're totally fine with Protein shakes.

Have you looked into unflavored protein powder to add to Soups, etc?

Amazon has soy Protein. I can't drink whey shakes. The chocolate soy off Amazon is delicious.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals
