Any one have problems getting your liquids in? I’m in a struggle over here. I’m trying hard to drink and get the amount of Protein in per day and getting discouraged fast. The doctor wants me to get in 48 ounces of liquid and 40 ounces of protein in the first couple weeks and I’m barely getting in 30 to 36 ounces. I tried the 4 ounces every hour on the hour but I feel like I’m stuffing myself.

Hi Velvet Anne, I’m 14 days post op and have only reached my Water goals in the last three days. My doctor said that the water added to Protein Shakes counted towards the water goal otherwise there’s no way I could hit the target at the moment.
40oz of Protein seems like a lot, my doc said 40 to 60 grams per day for the first two weeks. I bought a flavorless and very soluble Protein Powder and add that to almost everything. That could help to up the protein amount. The other stuff I bought was flavored protein water powder.

Good luck and hope it gets easier for you.
