I am also on day 3. I have been having puréed foods like chicken and cottage cheese. I'm doing pretty good but man do I want to eat some christmas treats. I'm not hungry, I just want it!! I need my brain to just stop thinking about the food.

My brain subsided with food obsessions when it got replaced with clothes buying and doing new things!  I just came from my aunt's house; her 21-year-old granddaughter was partaking in a goodly amount of Grandma-made Christmas treats.  I was secretly thinking how special it would be for the two of them to build memories by going for a walk together, going to an exercise gym together, anything but Grandma staying in the kitchen showing her love through food.  I was raised no differently but plan to if I'm lucky enough to be a grandma some day.

I am having a little issue getting my water in also. Im just two days out. I have been able to get broth down and water but stuff like jello is just to sweet. I cant wait to try yogurt tommorrow but a little scared because of the chance of being milk intolrant. Hopefully that will go ok though. You will get better every day. Just kerp trying

Have you tried Diet Cranberry juice? I use that. :) Its what they were giving me in the hospital, so it seems safe.

Warm or hot tea or sugar free hot chocolate if you are one who has a sweet tooth. I had my surgery in October and warm liquids are the best thing for me right now.Hydration is the most important thing right now to.Protein shakes may help also.

I am 2 1/2 months out.  I found the first little

while, I would get all my water in one day and all my protein the next.  Best wishes!

My doctor lets me drink apple/cran/grape/pom juices as long as I water it down significantly. I use 1/4 juice to 3/4 water although after tomorrow I'm lowering it to 1/8 and 7/8... so I just get a taste of flavor. Also, I have a water app that goes off every 15 minutes and when it does I sip 2 oz... by the end of the hour I've had a cup - works great! There are LOTS of free apps in the Apple/Droid store.
