    Hmmm, I wish I had got samples of protein shakes as I spent a heap of money on big tubs that I ended up hating!!

    No drinking with my meals.
    I wished I would have practiced that.
    It took me quite some time to get used to it.
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Just not purchased a HUGE bag of protein powder from my surgeon's office. The one I liked pre op I could not stand post op. My taste buds changed a bit.

    I agree with the prior suggestions. Don't buy anything in large quantities. Your tastes may change. A good water bottle or two. Try the Nalgene brand, great quality and not expensive. Be careful who you tell about your surgery, not everyone understands. Your family and close friends will most likely support you but other will ask some dumb questions. This forum is a great support group. Follow the program and you will do fine. The most common comment around here is "I wish I had done this sooner". You'll do just fine.

    Just make sure to stock up on the liquids you'll need - jello, broths, protein powders, etc. I know some places have sample packets of protein powders that you can try (most sell it in a bundle with a sample packet of most or all of their flavors). My friend and I ordered samples from different companies before our surgery to see what the different flavors were like.

    I also recommend buying a few smaller bottles of sugar free Torani syrups to add to your shakes for a flavor boost!
