Hi

Any recommendations on getting in the 30 ml of Protein Shake or Soup without feeling sick. I’m post op day 3 and have a dreadful headache I think from only having hydralyte. Am I supposed to take the whole 15 mins to have the 30 mls . Any advice is appreciated.

Are you getting in all your fluids? The main thing I was told was getting your 64 oz of fluids is the most important thing. Headaches and nausea can definitely be from dehydration. I was too full to get all my Protein in the first few days and they said that was ok. Just focus on fluids. I had a bypass on 11/5. Hope this helps

I agree, just work on getting your fluids in (sip, sip, sip!) and as your body heals you will be able to get in the Protein Shakes, etc. Rest well!!!

Thank you to you both for the info, I don’t think I was getting enough fluids, I will just focus on hydrating and looks like when the times right I’ll start getting that Protein in 😊 thanks again

Sip, sip, sip constantly. No big gulps or trying to get it in all at once like a meal. In future weeks you'll stick to 3 meals a day but not now just "graze" on your liquids and Protein Shakes all day long.
