i was on clear liquids for a week, then thicker liquids [like protein shakes and poached eggs] for a week or two, then i could start adding regular food. believe me, a couple of bites of something and i was DONE, but at least it was a start.

some folks around here had to stay on the clear liquids for longer, and they're docs were slower to add regular food.

glad you're doing ok. BTW, are you putting your protein into a blender with ice? i COULD NOT consume them made that way. I mixed the protein and poured it over ice. something about all that air beaten into the mix made me soooo uncomfortable
