I feel like the pain is lessening today but I can never tell because sometimes it comes back worse than before. All in all, it's better. Will be soooo happy when it's gone for good! I did find a way to get my protein down.I got unflavored protein and add it to soups (pureed & watered down) or i add it to milk and add torani flavorings. The smell is not as bad as the flavored protein and now i can have a variety of flavors. Im also ordering a different brand that comes in peanut butter cookie and chocolate pb fudge. Sounds good but won't know til it gets h ere. I also found out that you can buy pea protein and brown rice protein. The brown rice sounds pretty good. I think you could flavor it easily.
