Clear protein stage after surgery



Recommended Posts

Hello. I am due to have surgery on 8/7/20 and I am about to look into some products for the clear Protein stage right after surgery when you’re home but not ready for full liquids. I tried Isopure clear and found it revolting. I was able to get it down by holding my nose but I would love to hear some of your suggestions for this stage. Thanks!

I purchased on Amazon Protein Premier Clear. I couldn't find Clear in the stores so I tried my luck online. I purchased Peach flavor, it's okay. There is another flavor but for whatever reason I chose peach. You can also have Water with flavor drops. Honestly, I don't know how I survived that first week, it was this and pretty much broth. That is the hardest week!

I’m meeting with the program nurse in an hour. I will ask her.

Would Unjury chicken Stock qualify? https://unjury.com/products/unjury-protein/chicken-soup-flavor.html

I spoke to the nurse about Unjury and she said it should be fine. I’m kind of confused though because she said no whey but I see whey on the list of ingredients.

Weird - my nutritionist says whey is fine as long as it doesn't upset my tummy. Unjury is a medical-recommended brand so maybe that's why she doesn't care that there is whey in it?

I’m on the last day of my Clear Liquids. I ordered the clear Premier Protein Water directly from their website and that gave me 20g from the one drink. I also use the Unjury unflavored so I can add it into my full liquids in the next stage. Best of luck!

Some Bariatric programs allow the shakes in the first stage. Mine wants Clear Liquids for one week. But the nurse said the week begins the day you have surgery. So if you have surgery on Monday by the following Monday you start the next phase. If everything goes well I will be out on the third day and have to start drinking clear for less than five days. That’s not bad.
