Just had my first protein shake



Recommended Posts

Try other flavors. I had good luck with Premier Protein powder… it’s like $22-26 on Amazon cones several different flavors… I’m lactose intolerant so I mixed mines with almond milk. It’s an acquired taste lol but so worth it… you’ll drop that weight in no time and can have your surgery and start your new life. Best of luck to you 🤗

I swore by OWYN ("Only What You Need") vanilla before surgery, and post-op I can't stand them and basically only drink Fairlife Core Power which is essentially chocolate (or vanilla) milk with Protein in it. Find the one you like now but don't assume you're going to love it after surgery, so don't stock up.

I always mix the fruit-flavored Syntrax powders with Crystal Light lemonade. I think they taste better that way - but then, not everyone loves Syntrax products.

I’m a fan of ghost Protein Powder mixed with almond milk. The flavors chips ahoy, Oreo and fruity Cereal milk really taste like their names!!! I like premier and Vega powders to, but never get sick of the ghost. They are sold out a lot on the ghost website so I always get them from gnc.com

I had the chocolate truffle with 1% milk this afternoon. SO MUCH BETTER!!!

the Syntrax one? I like chocolate and vanilla powders (regardless of brand) mixed with almond milk (or any kind of milk) rather than Water.

Yes the Syntrax but I'll keep that in mind and try other choco and vanillas. I want to get used to non-milk milks, too, since I can be a bit lactose intolerant. I plan to try soy and almond and hopefully make the switch, but not there yet.

YOU GOT THIS!!!! I have several favors of Bariatric Fusion shakes and they are very tasty. The chicken noodle Soup is my go to dinner shake. Nice to have something warm and savory after sweet shakes throughout the day. Today I mixed it with some chicken broth and a spoon full of strained fat free cream of chicken Soup and it was just heavenly. All of my other shakes flavors I mix with lactaid Protein. I’m 4 days post op, but so far so good.

Savory shakes - that sounds great. I'm a vegetarian, but I'm sure there are some out there. That's a great idea.

Doobie.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
