Hi, I had my surgery on 9/14 so I'm currently 10 days post-op. Today I moved from Clear Liquids to Protein Shakes. I like Protein shakes, that's not my issue. I couldn't finish more than half of a shake, and it took me an hour to drink half of it. It was a 6oz shake, so I could only finish 3oz before nausea and fullness, it has been 4 hours I still can't drink any more of it without getting nauseous again. the brand is GNC Isopure if that matters. My stage 2 diet is 64oz of Water and 2 shakes, then 2oz puree if I can handle the first two. I'm mainly worried about my bones hair and overall health if this keeps up. I know it's only been one day and I'm probably overreacting but I figured I would ask.

So main question,

How long can I expect this to last?

You're only 2 weeks post surgery. Relax. Consume as much of the shakes as you can and don't worry if you don't finish. Your body is healing, You will be able to consume more as time passes and you will be just fine,

Don’t worry, I’d take half the day to drink mine. I diluted them (at least 50% more Water because disgusting) but I’d make it for Breakfast & still be sipping it at lunch.

Just do the best you can and it will get better with time. You are in the healing stage. Your overall health won't suffer because of a short term recovery. Yes, you'll lose hair but it will grow back. Overall, you'll be a much healthier person when you reach your goal! Congrats on your success so far!

My surgery was 9/13 and I’m in the same boat as you are, I haven’t been able to finish one, only half over a few hours. Same with cottage cheese and soup… just small amounts at a time. I’m struggling to hit the Water goal too ☹️ I think it just takes time… good luck, hope you’re feeling good!

Have you tried the clear Protein drinks. I couldn’t drink them early on because of the sweetness and all I drank was the clear protein. I went with premiere protein fruit punch. They also have peach and it available on Amazon.

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      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.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
