Do I count my Protein Shakes and watery Soups as part of my daily liquid, I am supposed to have 60/60 but not sure how to count it.

I know during my full liquid phase 32 oz were to come from stuff like Water, shakes, Propel, broth, Gatorade Zero, etc. and the other 32 oz from stuff like blended bean Soups, cream soups, milk, yogurt, sugar free pudding, etc.

Do you have any paperwork/a binder with that info for reference that the doc or dietician gave you?

Each doctor's office is different, but Protein Shakes and other pure liquids, like broth or milk (on its own), count towards my liquid goal for the day. So a Protein Shake counts towards both my Protein and liquid goals for the day, which does make meeting them a lot easier right out of surgery. If you have questions about your specific office's plan though, the best thing to do would be to give them a call to clarify.

most clinics do seem to let you count those toward your Fluid intake, but not all. I'm not sure why some of them don't..

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
