Well I had surgery June 25th so about 5 days after. I tried to have a Protein Shake yesterday and peaches and cream is so nasty that I couldn't do it. I need help because I also haven't been able to have a bowel movement.

Ask your surgeon if its ok to start stool softeners

Try GNC lean shakes or Fairlife high Protein Shakes. I've found these brands far more palatable than Premier. If you prefer savory over sweet, lots of brands make Protein Soups. Check online and in the BariatricPal Store.

Happy Healing ❤

it usually takes up to a week to have a bowel movement. There's not much in there. But yes - stool softeners should help since the first one is usually a doozy.

I reccomend GENEPRO unflavored Protein Powder. You can put it in just about anything and a tiny scoop is 30g of Protein. If you need help making a BM I reccomend dulcolax suppository because the first BM after surgery suuuuuuucccckkkkkkksssssss!!!

I remember having a HARD time with the first bowl movement after surgery, too. I took stool softeners and that helped. After that, a lot easier and no issues. Maybe TMI but..... my bm changed to this soft, smelly, sludge that even I couldn't stand. Keep the vent ON. LOL
