  1. That sounds wonderful to me! Thank you!!
  2. Thank you both!
  3. Please delete one of my twin posts, thanks!

  4. Hello, all. I had my gastric bypass a week ago. I've had a wonderful recovery thus far and I'm returning to work on Monday, just 10 days after my surgery. I am on full liquids and sick of the choices. I have a Premier shake for breakfast and lunch, then a clear or cream based soup for dinner, per my NUT instructions. How do I shake this boredom and stay within the requirements?
  5. Hi aejpiechocki, Tomorrow will be one week from my RNYGB. I drank a lot of Atkins Lift Berry during my clear liquids phase. Each bottle contains 20 grams protein. Best of luck to you.
  6. Thanks!!
  7. Thank you Kellyv93. It is very uncomfortable but I find it has lessened in the last day or two. Cannot wait to be out of the "liquid only" stage. Thanks again.
  8. Thank you Zen_Steph and Jen581791. I think I have finally turned the corner! I drank 3 bottles today: 2 water and 1 protein water. It doesn't hurt when the liquid lands in the pouch. I have 1 more protein water to go and I will have met the requirement. Thank you so much for your suggestions!
  9. Thank so all so much.
  10. The program completely covered this. The gulp was accidental on Day 1. My concern is whether in actuality I will be able to take in a full 64 oz. I am hoping day 3 will bring a big improvement in my ability to do it. Thank you for your response.
  11. Thank you so much. Trying to not get discouraged. I remind myself I'm only 2 days out.
  12. Thank you for your response. Day 2 postop and I am only managing sips every hour. If I gulp, I throw up. I hope I am able to follow these suggestions soon.
  13. Thank you all so much. It helps to know what I'm feeling is normal at this phase. Shot glass every 15 sounds doable. I will try that. Thank you so much!
  14. Hello all, I had my RNY on Friday, April 7. I can't manage more than a small sip of room temperature water and I can feel it go down and "land" in my pouch. I am wondering if I will ever go back to feeling good. All suggestions appreciated.
  15. That's so encouraging. Thanks! I drive 40 minutes to/from my office and work 8:30-2. I'm wondering if that's manageable. Thank you!
