I found two protein drinks that I liked pre-surgery ok. Post surgery, I tried and got two down. By the third one, I started crying and gagging and almost vomited (which made me cry harder). I wasn't blending them, just pouring over ice.
Luckily, my mom had surgery (at a different center) about a year ago. Her post-op diet was no-chew foods for 2 weeks after surgery-- yogurt, applesauce, broth, non-chunky soups. My friend was on a similar diet from a different Kaiser center as my mom... so I'm trying their center's diet and I've stopped wanting to cry when I have to eat.
