Congratulations on your surgery and glad to here you are feeling good ... I came home on Wednesday and almost feel over whelmed with the eating (protein) and drinking thing .. and i have no idea when to take all the vitamins and supplements as some cannot be taken within hours of others .  I have a thyroid pill that says to take on an empty stomach and not to take within 4 hours of a multivitamin or calcium .. There doesn;t seem to be enough hours in the day ... have no time to nap as i am always trying to eat or sip .. At the full fluid stage what do you think it more important .. getting in the fluids or the protein ... ?

Protein first, always protein!!

With the vitamins and medications why don't you call your local pharmacist and make an appointment for a consultation to sort out when to take what. Or call your clinic, the nutritionist could probably help you as well or if your clinic has a pharmacist so much the better.
