I am now 16 days post op. I did 10 days of protein drink liquid diet which I thought I would NEVER make it through! But I did, and as of 3 days ago I was allowed to start eating soft foods. I am 5'11", so my nutritionist is telling me that I must consume 80 grams of protein a day. I just can't do it! It is too much! I have felt worse these past few days than I did when I was only on liquids! I feel uncomfortably full, lethargic, and just plain yucky! Like I had Thankgiving dinner three days in a row! The way I figured it, I can only get 80 grams of protein in by adding protein powder to my food, plus having a protein shake in the morning and afternoon. There is no way I can do this and get any water in, and it just makes me too full. If I could just eat my three small meals a day, and then have water in between, I think I would feel alot better. Is it really THAT important that I get all that protein in?
