I'm 11 days post op and I'm struggling to get more than 250 calories a day of that I'm getting about 15 grams of Protein. At 9 days post op, I was allowed to start a full liquid diet and I finally tried today a teaspoon of mushroom bisque, stayed down but now I'm trying to do a shake and my stomach is just gurgling. My nutrition gave me a recipe for protein Popsicles, so making them now.
Has anyone had any problems with liquid intake after surgery.

Protein no not really... Water is still a struggle at nearly 8 months post op. For Protein Shakes i bought those little 1 ounce cups and i would drink it that way. 1 ounce at a time throughout the day. It helped a ton.

I didn’t get all my Protein in either in those first couple of weeks. You’re healing, not hungry or interested in eating. My surgeon was ok as long as I was making an effort & was getting in a little more every couple of days. Same with fluids. You’ll notice some days are easier than others & that’s fine too. You’ll get there. Just slowly sip on those Protein Shakes, Soups, etc, all day. They count as fluids so double win. Try protein waters too.

I am 6 weeks post surgery. I swear by fairlite Protein Drinks. 30g Protein or Muscle milk has a 40g. I plan to drink them for the whole year. I set a 15 minute timer on my phone and drank 1 oz Water. Found room temperature was best not cold. I found sugarless skittles flavoring for water. Green apple and grape are great. I drank my Protein Drink 1 ounce an hour.

We have had our tummies made into a small tube. After surgery the tube will be very swollen. It's very difficult to drink for most of us. The sooner you can hit your liquid goals the better you will feel. Just keep drinking and try for more every day. It seems like a day's work to keep on top of it in the beginning but it's worth the effort. Try hot cold and frozen drinks.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
