@Bastian I hope that things get better for you. That they figure out what is wrong.

my life has been endless battles. But we do what we can to get by and sometimes it’s still worth the price we paid. I paid hefty price physically to battle with my weight but I wouldn’t change it.

I hope this leaves you no regrets where the path takes you. I find it hard when answers aren’t clear or even there. I didn’t get them myself. I wanted to answer though I’m a tad exhausted.

I will say, Not all whey Protein is the same, you can have allergic reaction to some not others. Depending how pure they are. The quality I’d say. I had the best results with PEScience select Protein Powder, although they do make a vegan select. Have you tried mixing protein powder in yogurt, like Ripple brand yogurt that’s non dairy. I don’t do well with dairy but have a little Greek yogurt since it’s protein rich. To get dense protein BariatricPal has excellent protein shots. It very well could be Vitamin deficiency and more an overall ill feeling you need higher absorption nutrition until they figure out if it’s mechanical.

I highly recommend taking Whole Foods based Multivitamin in Gummy or liquid form. Because your body utilizes it better than traditional Vitamins. most vitamins shoot right through your system especially after bypass. And you went through a lot with yours. I kind of wish they had taken my remnant stomach. I wonder if I feel pain from it but they didn’t see ulcers there.

sorry I go off on tangents. I had my gallbladder removed also. I take chewable digestive enzymes that helps. I also read bike salts are beneficial.

all the best to you in getting the care you need

It's not up to anyone here to say you are at a healthy weight or underweight. You know your body best. Advocate for your medical needs. Annoy them with phone calls. Get second opinions.

Some things to try:

Weight gainer shakes add whole milk - available on Amazon or GNC.

powdered carbs (mix in water) available on amazon or GNC.

Nut butters are high in calories.

If your surgery restriction is still tight, Eat several meals all day long to get your calories in.

Best of luck, Keep us updated.

So, after being in agony and spending a week in hospital turns out I have an ulcer!
Took me going in to the er to get sorted tho pppftt.
So now on sucralfate and dietary supplement drinks.
Hopefully once this ulcer is healed ill be able to eat and not rely on the dietary supps, they want me on 5 a day plus food but I can only get 1 and a half in.

They talked about putting an nj tube in or giving me tpn if my nutrition doesn't improve so I'm trying to get a good range in, fingers crossed this will be the end of any issues!!
