[mention=366568]Gumby19943[/mention] My diet plan said I could try full liquids at 3 days out. I tried a Premier Protein vanilla shake and did not tolerate it very well at all. I also had to go back to Clear Liquids and broths. I did try a Campbell's sipping Soup yesterday though and it was amazing!! It took me most of the afternoon, but it stayed down and the taste was divine! I tried the squash and sweet potato one.
My doctor said the Protein Shakes are harsher on the stomach when they are premixed or mixed with milk. He told me to make my own Protein shakes with Celebrate 4 in 1 with Water and not milk to start out with. I dont know if it makes a difference or not because I haven't tried it with milk yet. I am keeping this protien down though. So maybe there's something there, maybe not. Good luck. Hope u find your happy medium.

I am 10 days out today and finally have dropped all the Water weight from the hospital. Still feeling like a hot mess, but there are changes for the better each day. I am getting in 50 to 60 in fluids a day and only 2 Protein Shakes and do I feel weak. Today is my first follow up appointment. Still taking a nap everyday, but maybe not today. Hubs is taking me and we might go to the store after, so we shall see how that goes. I am worried about going back to work next week. Glad to see everyone is doing so well! Take care!

@aholland Thank you! I was wondering if it was the thickness or the milk in there. I tried the Premier RTD vanilla cut with Decaf coffee the other morning and it seemed to go down and stay down decently. It made the coffee to sweet, so I'm going to stick with unflavored mixed in with things or broth flavored stuff for a bit longer. The two times I got sick before have me scared to overdo anything. Thank you for the help on the milk based things!

Anytime. I'm not struggling with Protein but I am struggling with Water intake. 64oz is the bare minimum my dr wants me to drink every day. I did that yesterday and I felt so dehydrated. So I have incorporated 16 oz extra liquids today. Hopefully I won't feel so dried out tomorrow morning. I do like the crystal light lemonade. Not having any issues with it and I haven't had to take a nausea pill today.

Check about crystal lite lemonade flavor. I was told only this flavor wasn’t good to use

Crystal light is part of my clear liquid diet. I can have all flavors. I can even have sugar free koolaid. My favorite is grape. I freeze it and make a grape slushy and eat it with a spoon.

I am experiencing the same thing. Drinking actually hurts worse than pureed stuff. So hard fitting it all in!

I was cleared to start them yesterday. I tried refried Beans with some cheese sprinkles and that went okay. Except I must have taken one bite too many because after about five minutes I was in the back bathroom at work throwing up. It was brutal and most definitely unpleasant.

Yikes. Did u count how many bites before the upchucking started? Did u feel full? Just trying to see what to expect. I'm not a graceful puker. It comes out of every orifice in my face in a Linda Blair fashion.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
