Hello all. Had my VSG on 19OCT so still trying figure things out. Need to update my profile and stuff still, but not in front of the computer. Here are my stats: 6’1”, starting weight 300lbs, went in to surgery at 288. BMI was 39. I’m five days post surgery and weighing it at 283. Goal is 200lbs.

I’m having the typical food addiction withdrawals, but getting through the liquid diet portion as well as possible. Looking forward to solids. Nothing major right now and just fatigued, which should change as my body adjust.

Hi Everyone -

I had my surgery on 10/19. I am really struggling with whey Protein isolate. The only one I can stomach is the clear fruity kind, but only a few oz. I have gotten up to 12 grams of protein in one day and that’s it. The whey makes my stomach turn (it made me nauseated in pre-op too, but we were allowed one type of plant Protein Shake and one soy, so those helped me get through it). All of the pre-made shakes on my list are discontinued, aside from the clear fruity ones, which I find weird - why would they give us a list like that? I bought a few different kinds of powders and they are all awful. They make my stomach turn after about 2oz and then I am nauseas for the next 2-3 hours. I have tried mixing unflavored whey with watered down cream of wheat to get away from the dreadful constant sweetness, but it still makes me sick. Anyone else in a similar situation? Anyone have luck making their dietician budge on whey protein? My next step will be to email the dietician and see what she thinks. 60 grams of any protein is better than 12 of whey right? Maybe? I am doing ok on liquids and even well on pudding and Jello.

Are you allowed fat free milk? if so try making the shakes with the milk, thank me later.

I can't stand the shakes with Water, even the one I use all the time, but when I make it with milk, it's a while other taste. I use Body Fortress, it's Whey but you might like it with milk instead of water. Oh and I only drink the chocolate flavor, it's the only thing in chocolate flavor I like. Good luck, happy healing and congrats

I’m extremely sensitive to milk/whey/lactose but I’ve found a protein milk that is lactose free and has 30 grams of protein! AND it tastes yummy! My dietician approved it and was excited to add that to her list. It’s the Fairlife high Protein Drink. My favorite is the vanilla but the chocolate is good too. The strawberry is actually good as well. The other one I like is the core power protein drink (26 g of protein) that is actually made by fairlife. Good luck!

Hi had my surgery 10/15. I have not been able to tolerate the Protein Shakes I recently bought will try the core power protein . But as of Thursday my one week mark, I started getting really hungry. So much so my stomach has been hurting from the grumbling.

My daily schedule looks something like this.

Between meals just lots of water

Breakfast: skim milk

lunch: chicken broth

snack: jello

dinner chicken broth

Hang in there. Is it upsetting your stomach or is it just causing some gurgling? Mine rumbles with the Protein, but not Water and other Clear Liquids. My physician prescribed a heart burn medicine I have to take for the 90 days after surgery so nothing but the gurgling on my end. I hope you find something that works. I am using the Premier Protein shakes due to the flavors offered.

Also I’ve had a few bites of crackers as that makes my stomach feel better

A little jealous as I can’t have milk at all (according to my doctor’s diet). Might add it back after the eight week mark, but nothing till hen

I have been having the same issue. This week I found Protein2O. It is flavored water with 20g of protein. It has been a lifesaver. Both plant and regular Protein Shakes made me sick and nauseous. This as a substitute has been great.
