Dr. Doesn’t require protein?b



Recommended Posts

Does anyone’s surgeon not require a ton of Protein Shakes, especially the premade ones ?? I’ve heard that some do not make it a requirement. Just trying to get some information. Thanks!

Hi. I couldn’t imagine any bariatric surgeon not requiring their patient to get Protein in post op. It is very important for healing.

The cardinal rule for bariatric patients post op and for life is “protein first”

i had sleeve in 2018 and revision to bypass last Friday. Both surgeons required 60grams of protein post op.

Good luck with your research and hope that helped.

Maybe your friend is misunderstanding the directions. Any site you look at Protein is a requirement. I would ask your friend to call the nutritionist \ surgeons office to verify instructions.

My doctor didn't push Protein Shakes for the pre-op diet. He says you just need to eat Protein and veggies.

He still wants me to get in at least 90 grams of protein.

Still protein is king even if it is not through protein shakes.

I am doing shakes anyway cause it easier than cooking.

I'm betting your friend's doctor is Dr. Matthew Weiner in Arizona? If so, his plan is a sound one. In the early days there are shakes, but as his patients heal they follow the Pound per Day plan of his. It's veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes and small amounts of Protein.

Everyone’s surgeons plan is different.

Don’t worry about what your friend is doing. Concentrate on your own instructions.

The mantra “protein first” is when your surgery restriction is new. Your stomach is healing. It’s a challenge to consume 60 grams with limited stomach space. You don’t have room for any of the other items allowed on your plan.

Most dieticians don’t want patient’s to be reliant on shakes long term. As progress out from surgery, you can easily get your Protein with real whole foods and have no need for shakes.

It’s not that I’m worried about what she’s doing. I was curious. More because I myself am not a fan of premade Protein. But I have no issues with my surgeons instructions.

For anyone interested. Check out the video below. Not her Dr. but I follow him and he’s quite interesting. He’s VERY blunt/crass, but gets points across.

Pretty sure that many of us here have watched at least a few of his videos. Agreed that he is interesting and entertaining.

I do use Bone Broth, fairlife milk and some other high Protein liquids as well. Not just the premade shakes.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
