I'm not sure you'll want to buy a whole lot.. I found that my tastes changed after surgery and somethings I could tolerate better than others. One thing that I did really enjoy after surgery was Pedialyte and sugar free popsicles.

Thank you! I appreciate any feedback as I don't want to buy a product that is gross, you're already recovering the last thing I want to do is recover from bad taste! 😝

Popsicles were life savers. The crunch alone was worth it!

Unjury makes some savory flavored soups--chicken and chili. There may have been others. That was a nice break from the usual sweet shakes. I also bought some canned gumbo and strained it just to get a different flavor.

I made my Protein Shakes in the blender with fat-free Fairlife milk. It whips up completely frothy--much better than shaken or stirred Protein Drinks.

I bought Swanson Sipping Bone Broth...45 calories, 9 grams of protein...the chicken with Lemon and Rosemary was my favorite, but they also had plain chicken and Chicken with Ginger and Tumeric.

Thank you! I will check out Unjury. I have not even heard of Fairlife Milk till researching on this site.

I just started my pre-op diet today and tried the chicken flavored Unjury Protein Powder. I didn't love it. You have to heat the Water to 140 degrees before adding the mix (no hotter or it changes consistency), which was just not quite hot enough for my taste and seemed a little chalky. I think I'll stick with Protein Shakes, and sip broth to get some saltiness to counter the sweet. I'll definitely check out the Swanson's bone broth!

My pre-op diet doesn't allow milk of any kind, but I can have low fat cottage cheese and greek yogurt.

What brand of sugar free popsicles are you all buying? I can't seem to find any and I think that would be a great thing to have on hand.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
