Ok y’all... I’m a week out from surgery, and I’m still barely able to get the minimum 48oz of Water, not even approaching my Protein goal (lucky to get in 30/40g).

Any advice? I start sipping before I even get out of bed in the mornings, alarm goes off every 15 minutes, and it still isn’t working. I still have one more week before I can even start on purées and I’m struggling.

My wife and I are also 1 week out from surgery and we are definitely getting the Water and Protein in. We always have water on hand and drink all day long, except for when we are working on our Protein Drinks. If it is so difficult I would suggest getting smaller protein shots. I have seen them but not tried them though. A protein water would also work to help with the Fluid intake requirement but my wife and I have not been able to drink them since we had surgery. We take our time getting our shakes in and it takes at least 1 hour if not 1 1/2 hours to get one 12 oz Protein Shake in.

So I have a dumb question. I know we have to wait 30 minutes after eating to drink, but do Protein Shakes and broths count as “eating” for having to wait to drink? Thoughts?

That never occurred to me. I'm not waiting after a shake. I'm just trying to hit the goals. I hope in doing it right

Thank you!! I will have to look into the protein shots. I did much better today (48oz of water so far and 50g protein), but it’s still been a struggle. At 9 days post op I thought this would be going more smoothly, but small steps I suppose.

I haven’t been waiting either. broth counts towards my Fluid intake, but shakes do not.

Thanks all, I’ll keep on just drinking then. Every once in a while I take a huge drink and just sit there with a mouth full of Protein Drink like, are you stupid? What are you thinking? And slooooowly have to swallow the mouthful a little bit at a time. Love that.

Hello everyone! I have been reading posts for a few weeks and finally got up the courage to join...for support. I will be getting my sleeve on November 25th and discharged Thanksgiving day, then flying home Friday the 27th. I am self pay at Alabama Surgical associates in Huntsville Alabama. Flying from coastal Ga. I have no underlying health conditions but when I walk/jog the my weight causes severe ankle pain and swelling (Tenosynovitis). I need help to get the weight off because exercise is causing pain. I am honestly more worried about the airplane than the surgery....until I go into surgery. Then I am sure Ill be terrified. I don't do pain. I vomited during child birth.....
Good luck with everything. Please make sure you have help. I was extremely tired and sore after surgery until day 3, but of course everyone is different. I think you will be fine if someone could push you around in a wheel chair at the airport.
