ESG Procedure 8/19 - Liquid Phase Tips



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! New to the forum! I just got an ESG procedure done in Virginia (so far so good if looking for a recommendation!) So I'm currently 4 days post op. I haven't felt the urge to eat/drink/ anything which I know is just as bad as eating the wrong thing so I was wondering if anyone has some recipes or tips to get through the liquid phase. Never thought I'd crave scrambled eggs haha

Thanks!

When I couldn't face another Protein Shake day, I drank Swanson Sipping Broths, 45 calories and 9 grams of Protein. When I was really craving something more "solid" I mixed Healthy Request Cream of chicken with 1% milk, heated it and strained the chunks out of it, Once, when I felt I was going mad, I had my son go to Panera and get the Summer Corn Choder, which I blended and strained...yum!

I really like Protein hot chocolate. I got some from the BariatricPal Store that was really good, and then I got a big canister from Amazon that's ok but not quite as good. I have found that warm stuff goes down a little easier than cold, and the protein hot chocolate tastes like normal hot chocolate -- something I would drink before surgery. It's nice to have something a little different when you get sick of the cold Protein Shakes.

I had ESG done on June 19th in NC. I could not drink Water for the first week. It was like drinking battery acid. My doc told me to drink milk (fairlife) and warm Soups plus Protein Shakes. The warm soups (blended/strained) hit the spot. BTW, I'm down 30 pounds.
