    Hi Precious

    Ah yes, protein. Well we had the op on the same day so I thought I’d let you know how I’m doing – I’m pretty sure I’m not getting enough protein. I can’t seem to manage 4 or 5 meals, I have 2 or 3, and I have had to drop the amount I eat in order to leave some gurgle room for the air I swallow to escape back out. I learnt this the hard way. (I haven’t felt totally stuffed, but if I’m full, it just seems to push the air down to waist level and it is agony.)

    Today I had about 150mls of cottage cheese, well chewed; 1 golden kiwi, very ripe; about 100ml of blended homemade chilli con carne (50% veg 50% beans and meat) with a quarter of a sweet potato, mashed, and 2 teaspoons of plain low fat fromage frais. I recon that was about 30g of protein, if that. Other days I have managed about 100g salmon blended with either low fat hollandaise sauce (from a packet) or low fat mayonnaise; blended bolognaise sauce; low fat yoghurt with a kids banana well mashed; low fat processed cheese slices; about half a tin of heinz lentil soup with low fat grated cheese – I really haven’t been very adventurous yet and I’m getting really fed up with splat marks all over my clothes from the blending – any tips there? I wore an apron today and still got some on my sleeves (tomato based sauce on a white shirt – I know I know! I’m a mucky pup.) Violet. :washing:

    Depends on your op. Bypass 65. Band (or anyone else on a diet) roughly half a gramme per kg of body weight per day. So if you weight 100kg=50g. This may change depending on individuals.

    I’ve just been compiling a Tesco order for my post op eating after my bypass next Tues: things to purée basically. I came across this site when searching out high protein options (trying to keep my hair!) and thought it might be helpful for others:
    Top 10 Foods Highest in Protein

    Feeling more positive today after last night’s colly-wobbles, was rather discombobulated by the story of the poor lady who died but this morning I feel calmer. Hoping tinkly_roars has posted though as I am worrying about her now!

    Would be interested to hear from anyone else who had to come off medications pre-op and to hear how it affected them.
