Hi Michelle~ I had my surgery Feb. 23rd and am trying to add pureed foods in also. I don't see how I will get my required protein grams in each day by going to real food. I am drinking a protein shake for breakfast and lunch and then trying to eat the pureed food for the last 10-20 or so protein grams. But I just can't get more than a few bites in, so then I end up short on my protein grams for the day. I am also having left sided pain (burning and pulling) that has gotten worse instead of better.
How have you been doing with your post op? Do you have to puree the scrambled eggs? I have lost 23 pounds but it is slowing down...how are you doing with this? I hope we can offer each other information as we go through this process. Thank you, Mary
My surgery was February 23rd. I will try taking my PPI as you suggested. I am using milk diluted with some water for now.
Thank you for your suggestions.
Okay, I hope I can explain this right...I mix my protein drink and after a few sips I feel full. Do I stop drinking then, or give myself the full 30 minutes to finish the drink?
If I stop drinking as soon as I feel full then I am only getting a fraction of the protein that made up my drink, but if I continue to sip my drink over 30 minutes I will get the full grams of protein but, am I over filling my stomach by not stopping after I first felt full?
Also, where is the heartburn coming from? I'm taking my PPI but today I can't seem to get rid of it. I didn't have this problem prior to the surgery.
Thanks for any suggestions!
