I see a lot of people still getting nutrition from Protein Shakes. Which ones are you drinking because I am so over the Premier Protein ones. Someone said the Cookies and cream is good. I liked the boost I drank pre surgery but it only has 16g of Protein.

I did NOT like the cookie and cream one. Also, strawberry taste like soap to me. All the other ones taste fine. I bought one but I can't remember the name, to try, basically it was strawberry milk but with 20 something grams of Protein. It was delicious to me.

I think it's weird how different surgeons and practices have so many different way of doing things. For example, I didn't have a "purée" stage per se. I went from full liquids to soft foods. Puréed foods were included in the full liquid stage for me. After this I will go back to any foods. Well, low fat, low cal, low sugar of course.

Pre surgery I loved the Premier Protein shakes but after I HATE them!!! I have been drinking the Fairlife Core Power Elite shakes and they are SO YUMMY. They are not disgustingly sweet and taste so so good. They also have 42 G Protein in each bottle (14 oz)! I'm 2.5 months out and have half of one every morning for Breakfast and add in a little Fairlife skim milk for even more protein and make the shakes last longer! I really really love them!!!

I was reading this and it sounds exactly like what I have been saying. I thought at first I wrote it until it said 2.5 months out lol. I drank a Premiere last night because I really needed the protein and had been unable to drink them since before my surgery a month ago. I had to choke it down and then I felt sick after. I’m doing the fairlife also and love them. I’m experimenting with different ones. But that is a really good idea for the ones with 42 protein. It’s so full of calories. I had ordered some and then cancelled the order and ordered the 26g ones instead cuz there’s 90 less calories. I also ordered the 30g nutrition plan ones that have a little less calories and I found some in Walmart that are only 8 Oz bottles with 24g and only 130 calories so I bought a 4 ok of those to try. But fairlife is definitely the best tasting, hands down.

Have you ever tried mixing a bit of PB Fit in with vanilla Greek yogurt and dipping apples in it. Something else to look forward to trying if you like the apples with Peanut Butter taste.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. I went from lsurgery to soft foods. Mostly Protein Shakes for fear but I could eat regular foods but very small amounts, and felt fine.
this is a took to help lose weight not a magic solution.

I think you meant to ask flounder that but if so, they have them already peeled at Walmart now I noticed the other day.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
