My team gave me some guidelines on how much food your pouch can handle at various stages of post op ie. 1/4 cup up to three months. Is it the same for Protein Shakes?

Well liquids seem to drain through at a faster rate but a 1/4 cup sounds pretty close to Target!

I'm 1 week post-op and I can drink 4 oz. in about an hour.

I'm 9 days post-op and it takes me 15 minutes to drink a 10oz shake and I try to take longer than that. But I also know I'm having a pretty easy time with all this compared to others.

we were never given a limit on liquids - they go through you pretty fast.

Sip, sip, sip slowly.

I keep thinking something is wrong with me because I can drink faster. The first two days, I couldn’t. Now I can. I broke it, my sleeve is broken...🤦🏼‍♀️🤣 but seriously, should I count my blessings or be worried?

Count Your Blessings, my dear one. I have a RNY pouch, which I named Precious Pouch, she is as inflexible as wrought Iron. I would ❤ to move past 2-3 oz at a time! I have a Bariatric Clinic appointment next month & I will be 11 months out, planning something up to and maybe including a full- scale tantrum. What can it hurt? They have been ignoring me and my requests for help or someone to talk to, so there is nothing to lose.

I was allowed to add sugar/calorie free flavors to any liquid that I drank.

The confusion may come into play if some here had bypass and some had sleeve. Bypass patients are typically able to drink faster than sleeve patients.

You probably need to get 64 ounces Protein in per day if your plan is the same as mine.

When I drink Protein Shakes it does count as Fluid as well as protein.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
