Oh yeah,but warning! They may not taste the same to you, our taste buds get modified too. Many people find shakes post surgery unbearably sweet, often they cut them to 1/2 strength with. skim or 1% milk. Now me, I have one I haven't heard anyone else say, I find straight Water bitter in taste, I usually flavor it some way and chill it cold, others have to have room- temperature or even warm like decade or herbal teas. Your stomach becomes your guide on such things, amazing a banana-shape or a tiny pouch can rule your life, but if you disregard them, they do have a way of enforcing their rules! But wishing the BEST for YOU!

Thanks for your input... It will be interesting to discover what my tastebuds have to tell me [emoji6] [emoji3]

...also Optifast has a lot more calories and carbs than other Protein drinks/powders...you may want to check if it fits in well with your meal plan.

I had a few extra Optifast packets after my pre-op diet as well, and I ended up giving them to the fam to drink because I didn't want to ingest the extra carbs.
