    Protein shake

    When having a protein shake do you not drink water 30 minutes before and after? I have often wondered what others do.

    Any ideas

    Weird!! I have had a similar feeling that I related to a contraction "tightening" feeling!! Not painful but out of the blue all of a sudden my stomach area will freeze or tightened up?? When I realize it, it passes quickly, but no pain. I thought I was imangining this but now know it is similar to your feeling minus pain? I am nine months out, could it be nerves? Please follow up here after your dr. visit.

    It all comes in time. Each day after surgery you will get a little more. You are learning.

    Rice after a bypass

    I eat rice with no problems. Only a handful of times. I have had fried rice twice, white with butter and rice in stuffed green peppers. No problem digesting. I waited six months after surgery and I wouldn't want it every week but it can still be in your diet especially if you exercise regularly. Hope this helps.

    Drinking before a meal

    Very good demonstration with applesauce.

    Drinking before a meal

    So essentially if I drink after meals I am "washing" my food down?? Does this mean I am not getting nutrients? Or just that I will feel hungry sooner?
