Post op liquid diet



Recommended Posts

I asked my nurse for clarification yesterday and she really didn’t have one .... I’m almost a week post op and still on liquid diet. Everyone is confusing me because in the hospital they said I was on Clear Liquids but was given regular Protein Drinks. My NUT sheet says liquids like broth and Jello etc plus Protein Shakes.

I wanted to know can I strain egg drop Soup ? Or is that too thick?

You should be on as clear as you can liquids and Most of us did not start Protein till 10 days out. But dont freak out if the broth is not crystal clear or the Jello is yellow. The term clear means thin not thick liquids not really in terms of color.

So no on the Cream of mushroom Broth or Tomato Broths

But a chicken broth or beef broth is fine - as for protein they do make clear Liquid Protein drinks

Yes you can strain Egg drop but get the eggs out and then VItamix it

I’ve been allowed the regular premade Protein Shakes since the day after surgery and I’m fine with that I just wanted to enjoy some egg drop Soup on Christmas and no one seemed to be able to answer if I could have it or not at my bari clinic... I figured lobster bisque was already a no and other cream like Soups ...

I drink clear Protein Drinks and regular Protein shakes now for protein goals ... just wanted something “special” for Christmas
