I just found this app and it seems like so much help already! I had my surgery 8/5/2020 so tomorrow marks 1 week post op! Is anyone else having any issues getting all your liquids in for the day? I think that’s what I’m struggling with the most at this point.

Congrats & welcome. Don’t worry about meeting goals to begin. Just slowly increase each day or so. Sip, eat slowly & listen to your body. It will tell you what you can or can’t tolerate as you introduce foods back to your diet.

Good luck.

Welcome and congrats! I struggled for the first 5-6 weeks getting everything in and getting the timing right! Now, 7 months out, I look back at that time and wish I hadn't stressed so much over it! Just do what you can, and your body will eventually adjust and get to where it needs to be. It's in shock - you just had major surgery. It will all fall into place eventually!

it took me a little over a week to finally meet the liquid and Protein goals, and I had to work very hard to get there. it took me about two weeks before I was doing it consistently. but again, with a lot of hard work. I still have a hard time meeting the Water goals everyday if I don't start early enough in the day, but it gets easier as time goes by. protein is much easier now since I am starting to eat meat.

I am almost 3 months out and still struggle to get my liquids in, which is weird because I used to drink Water ALL day long before surgery... but now I am rarely thirsty and rarely have room in my tummy.. Just try to keep sipping through the day. That's what I do.
