of course it's a Saturday and I'm having trouble keeping my optifast down. Started with trots, that's passed but last night and this morning, I'm having trouble keeping the shake down.
Could I be reacting to it, or is this typical? I wish I could talk to the clinic, surgery is less than a week away.
Are you vomiting? If you can't keep it down, you might be lactose intolerant or have the 'flu? If you just can't stomach it, try stirring a teaspoon of cocoa in it. Also I know it's Saturday, so you probably can't get answers from your clinic, but there are alternatives such as a strict low carb diet. If you think it's lactose intolerance, try lacteeze drops or chewables until you can talk to your clinic. I hope you feel better soon. The road can be rough but it is worth it.

Try it with some sugarless syrup and mix in a blender with lots of ice. That could help?

If you are vomiting optifast back up, for next 2 days until you can talk to your clinic, take beef bouillon/consommé broth, and vegetable broth, and drink a lot to stay hydrated. Some clinics allow patients to munch on mini cucumbers for the crunch... won't harm you over next day and a half to skip the optifast and go on broths and a cucumber irvtwo. Monday you get help via phone.
I had one rough day like this. I added peppermint extract to it to help. I found ice foamed it up and made it worse.
I wish you good luck! I am sorry it is so rough.
