My surgery was the day before yours! My target calories that I was told my by NUT is 800, but I rarely get there. I usally get 700. I still drink 1 protien shake everyday and I eat 4 or 5 small meals because I still can't eat very much at each sitting. I eat cottage cheese often and can usually eat 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup, but tuna, salmon, chicken, or ground beef I can only do 1/4 of a C to 1/2 C.
