Surgery Update and Questions

Dear All -

My surgery was April 27th.  I can't believe how smooth it was...I'm so thankful for the caring people who surrounded me at Hurley Medical Center.  Their Bariatric Team is top notch.

Since the surgery I have been able to consume very little.  According to my nutritionist, I should be able to eat about 2oz protein.  That is not happening.  After about three bites (well chewed) semi-soft diet, I am feeling quite full.  Is this normal?  I certainly don't want to stretch my sleeve.  I am supposed to consume 60-80 grams of protein daily.  It takes me 1.5 to 2 hours to get down a protein shake.

Also, I've been without carbonated beverages (Pepsi Max) for over  a month now...but the craving for carbonation is still there.  I think about it all the time.  Any suggestions?

Thank you all for your support.  I can't tell you how much comfort I get from these pages.
