Hello! I am a week post op and still on liquids. I also have been struggling with Protein Drinks and reaching my Protein intake. I was perusing Walmart today and was in the baking aisle. I stopped at the extracts and flavorings and noticed a wide variety. I picked up the cake batter flavor and the strawberry flavor but they also had banana, lemon, spearmint, maple, etc. I just added a dash of the cake batter flavoring to 8 oz skim milk and 1/2 scoop of protein powder and I prefer the taste so much more! I just thought this would be something else some other people could try if they’re getting tired of the same things.

I make mint shakes sometimes. Either with vanilla Protein Powder or chocolate Protein powder and some peppermint extract. With the vanilla, I'll usually put a couple of drops of green food coloring in, too. And I blend both (choc and van) with ice in my blender. Shamrock Shake!

Thank you! That’s a great idea! Every time I drive past McDonald’s I think.... man.. it’s shamrock shake season! Now I’ll make myself a Protein one!

P.S. I always use milk or unsweetened almond milk. You could do it with Water, but it wouldn't be as "shake-y"

If you want something incredibly delicious and shakey....try frozen bananas with coco powder, skim milk, coconut milk, frozen greek yogurt (I just dump some in a zip lock baggie and break pieces off after it's frozen) and vanilla...in the blender.

Bananas do have sugar, so watch out if you are sensitive.

This is my go to when I crave ice cream. It's amazing, decent nutrition, and you can add protien powder if you want.

@Creekimp13 and @Terri77 I’m still on liquids, so I didn’t think I was allowed to have any solids blended yet 😩

I made a Protein shamrock shake this morning.
1 bottle Fairlife nutrition plan vanilla, a handful of ice, mint extract.

Tastes so good but made a huge serving!

        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.

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