Out to lunch



Recommended Posts

I'm scheduled for surgery on 9/30/03. I have a question about the liquid diet phase of the post-op period. My work requires that I travel to customers offices, so I'll have to brown bag my lunches on workdays. What do I bring. My docter suggests Carnation Instant Breakfast, but I can't start mixing shakes while I'm on the road. What about Slim Fast cans? They seem to be convenient to travel with. Suggestions appreciated.

My surgery date is Oct. 2 and this is what I'm going to do, I have a small cooler that I can fill with ice and I'm going to put my juice, slim fast, and all of my liguid that need to stay cool in there and put it in the back seat of my car. I travel a good ways to get to work and the cooler is small enough that I can bring it in when I get there and put under my desk. Campbells also make the Soup at hand and they are pretty good so I'm stocked up on those. The Carnation instant Breakfast also comes pre-made so maybe you can find some of those too. You can also get the sugar free Jello and put in the cooler. I have to do the liquid diet one week before surgery so I have been trying to come up with all kinds of ideas.

Good luck to ya!

When I was doing full liquids, Soup was my survival food. If you're traveling around can you stop to get some at lunchtime? Cream Soups and bisques were the best and really filling. And there are loads of stores nowadays who sell really good soup to go. (I have some great recommendations if you're going to be in Summit!) :)

Don't even start thinking Slim Fast...Too much SUGAR ... instead if you need the convience of a pre made drink there are much better choices. Best of luck,MB

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
