I sip on Water and Gatorade Zero all day long. I'm not tracking the oz's like I should but I was told as long as I'm peeing clear, I should be hydrated. I also sip on atleast 3 cups of homemade beef broth. I don't feel fatigued. I have Premier Protein, but can't have those until next week. Should I get Premier Protein clear? I also was told not to take my Vitamins until day 4 or 5. Is this norm? I'm not even hungry. Looking at my directions, it just says to drink 48-64oz a day, nothing about Protein.

It depends on the surgeon. Most people are drinking Protein Shakes right away, though. I'd check with your clinic.

My surgeon said only Clear Liquids the first week... and start on the Protein the second week. I followed his guidelines. But as @catwoman7 said -- seems like every surgeon has different guidelines.

I believe it was the same for me regarding the Vitamins and Protein. They made me wait awhile before starting either and I doubted it a bit, but stuck to it. I just had my 6 month check up and the doctor said I only had one Vitamin deficiency and that was Vitamin A which was only under by 3 points and she said she was impressed because usually with Loop DS patients their 6 month check up has tons of deficiencies. She said I follow my routine very well and it shows in the lab results and to just add some Vitamin A into my regiment. Which I did. I find it hilarious that my Iron looked good though because I've cut down to only 1 Iron Multivitamin a day (and two non-Iron mulit's) due to it stopping me up. I think my body just processes Iron REALLY, REALLY well! x'D

Anyway, I wish you the best!

I ordered Premier Protein Clear on Amazon, I should get it by tomorrow. I seriously think I drank only 100 calories, these past 3 days, I need calories!
