I had my surgery 6 days ago and being on a more restrictive clear liquid than pre-surgery, I am starving. Nothing I drink is helping this feeling subside. Is there anything I can do?

I thought about sucking on pieces of a saltine cracker.

Saltin crackers are not actually the worst thing you can eat. When you chew it it, most of us chew it to "sause", not swallowing whole bits. If you can handle it is another story.

I'd try some cream or heavy Soup with blended in Protein. Like tomat soup with eggs, fish soup with extra fish, vegetable soup with pureed chicken. Some heavy smoothies perhaps, based on cottage cheese or keso. Or youghurt. Protein puddings is also a go.

Gotta be honest with you. This is the worst of everything with the surgery. I don't recommend anyone to be on liquids before surgery because you have to be after and you are going to be tired, angry and not satisified and in food agony because of it. The last week of my liquids where solely protein puddings and youghurt. Soups are banned in my house after the liquid diet😂

Drink more Water, and suck on icecubes as well.

Do you have Pho restaurants in your area? The most satisfying thing to me while I was on liquids only was beef Pho broth. Warm, yummy, and helped me make it through that stage.

I'm 4 days post'op and thankfully havent had any hunger issues. I only had to stay on clear liquors for 24hrs after the surgery then I started Protein Shakes (takes me 2 meals to drink one) I've also used the Crystal light lemonade and the Premier Protein Water and last night had a 1/4 cup (maybe) of homemade Tomato Soup.

Try the cream Soups and a small spoon and eat them slowly... Jello or jello pudding as well.

Hang in there! Be sure you are keeping up with your water intake!!

It might help if I could drink some of my Protein Drinks. They didn’t have me starting on those until Tuesday. But the broth from the Pho restaurant sounds of interest. I used to love beef broth before surgery now I like the chicken broth better.

You should try Bone Broth, that would help satisfy you and provide more Protein than regular broth as well. Look for a true bone broth. Kettle & fire costs more but is very well made. There also pacific foods a turkey that’s good. Imagine foods makes a beef, chicken, turkey bone broth that’s very good. You want a sipping bone broth.

here’s kettle & fire they have other flavors and it’s priced very well here. I shop here all the time. I click through Rakuten to shop and get cash back each purchase (I’ve used both for many years) I also signed up for the site and get coupons. Although you can find it in the grocery. Some things I get better price online. Especially when they send me a coupon.

What are Protein puddings? Also, I bought some cream of chicken Soup off of this site, you mix it with Water. Can you have that once you are off just Clear Liquids?

I was told I could do the cream Soups starting Monday. I don’t know about any Protein pudding‘s. I was told I could eat sugar free pudding. You can have these after you’re Clear Liquids or according to your physicians plan.

Protein puddings can be bought in just about any store or kiosk. It's just a sugarfree, proteinrich alternativ to puddings. Like chockolate, custard, etc. Would think the options are greater in the US than in the most boring food country of them all, which I live in🤣

I've heard about protein Jello, I don't know more about this. But one can also have sugarfree jello. I make jello out of sugarfree limonade and Gelatin. It has a little protein. Usually blend a little keso with vanilla for a "vanilla sause" go go with.

Also heard about tasteless proteinpowder to mix in Water etc. Never tried it.

Soups are liquids so as soon as you are of clears, you can have creamed soups, but pls don't force if your stomach cannot handle it.

Here’s an example of BariatricPal Protein pudding, butter toffe is pretty good. You can thin it out as much as you like. I’ve mixed with yogurt sometimes and/ Or with unsweetened ripple milk for extra creaminess and protein instead of just all Water.

I haven’t tried their protein Gelatin mixes yet

https://store.bariatricpal.com/products/bariatricpal-protein-gelatin-raspberry

it’s very important that since when you first start out your portions are very small to make sure you are getting protein first.

They also have protein Soups including ones with Vitamins. prices might seem higher but your portions are much smaller. Plus you earn points for discounts on future purchases. I don’t buy too often but get certain basics sometimes when they have a good coupon sale.

one thing I wish I had right after surgery is their protein shots and protein juice ...

You can get a variety pack to try the flavors. I like pink lemonade.

Thank you! I will order some of the pudding and it will be here waiting for when I get back from the hospital. I had already ordered some of their soups; I have cream of chicken and one of cream of mushroom. 15 g of protein, so not as much as the Protein Shakes, but I will need some break from all that sweet taste. Do you continue to use these type of products? I can see incorporating some of these into my work lunches post surgery, for the extra protein.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
