I could only have a medicine cup full of protien shake at your stage and the 2 weeks after surgery.
Now, I am 8 months out and can eat 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of food at a time. Sometimes depending on the food (soups, salad mostly) I can eat more. It seems to slide down. But you need to be cautious with these things. They can be empty calories with little protien.
