RNY 12/17 Difficult reaching protein and fluid goals



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to this forum and glad I found it! I had RNY on 12/17. I am having trouble reaching my daily Fluid goal of 64oz and Protein goal of 60g. I am currently on pureed diet and was able to tolerate eggs and shrimp (kind of) yesterday. However today I feel weak, nauseous, often dizzy. I go back to work on Monday and trying to figure out a strategy to make it through the day. Thanks for any feedback!

Hey i am 4weeks post op on Monday, if you can't keep up with Protein don't worry as long you drinking enough fluids ideally with electrolytes as I think that's why you feel weak because of dehydration. Get electrolyte powder and add to ur Water with water flavouring or squash, drink apple juice and any juices you like, have yogurts and make urself some meat/poultry broths and have about 3oz of that at each sitting ideally aim for 5meals aday and you will be okay.

Thanks I will make sure to try that! I have the electrolyte powder so I will try that more often. Its hard for me to have 5 meals because my job is non-stop but I will try and plan better.
