Recommended Posts

I am day 6 after surgery. I am having a tough time with the variety of liquids to eat. I am hungry and just trying to get ideas

How long do you have to stay on liquids? My liquid phase was only a week, and after that, I got to start purees, which is much easier!

Protein hot chocolate was a life-saver for me in the liquid phase. I found it much more tolerable than cold Protein Shakes (and I still drink it regularly to get my protein intake). I make it with Fairlife milk instead of Water to increase the protein.

I also like protein Soups. The BariatricPal Store has a lot of different flavors (and you can find some of the same ones on Amazon).

sugar-free popsicles are your best friend on the post-op liquid diet. Variety of flavors. Sugar-free Jello too. Lots of flavor choices. I also drank Gatorade G2 (sugar-free) in orange.

Have you tried straining cream based Soups or making a thin smoothie? I know those helped me a lot during that stage.

Second this and how! Sugar-free popsicles were life-savers for me. Just do what you can and try to stay hydrated. I used GENEPRO as well- I was really sick as a dog for the first couple weeks for complications but especially the first 10 days. Try to drink as much as you can and try broth. Some people have it easier with warmer and some with cold. I know it can be stressful at this stage so just do the best you can. Move around and keep track of when you are drinking- force about an ounce at a time of anything you can handle.

The problem I have had is I am yet to be hungry...I miss certain flavors (easy fix with broth and seasonings) and textures(will have to wait a bit for that). I have a schedule for drinking and getting Protein in just like taking supplements and meds...it is something I need to do to get healthy and I just have to do it.

Straining Soups helped me a lot. I got tired of broth and I actually looked forward to my soups.
