Hi! At the end of august I am having jaw surgery to treat sleep apnea, for four weeks I'll have to be on a liquid/smoothie diet, and I have some good ideas for some fruit and peanut butter smoothies but I've been told to have at least one protein shake I can rely on to help curb hunger and keep my strength up.. I have a hard time with gluten and it seems whey, I used to work at a gym and I would try the two types we had there and they both caused stomach upset. Any ideas? Any brands that work well for you? I have about six weeks until my surgery date so I want to try a few before I'm in pain and recovering. Having some anxiety about the night I'll have to spend in the hospital, how do I explain to the nurse that no really let me get up and run to the throne if I need to..lol.. I'm hoping having the surgery and in turn getting better sleep will help with my ibs symptoms, I've been told to not expect it but I know that when I've had a particularly restless night my stomach is worse.. Thanks in advance for the help.. Any advice on surviving a hospital stay is welcome too!

Good luck with your surgery , hope it helps ibs I know if I have a bad sleeping night which is often , I get ibs the next day . I take ensure when I have a bout that lasts for days and i cannot eat ...make sure it is the original ensure. ...not all the new stuff with loads of fiber..for me fiber is evil.

Awesome thank you- I think I may try combining a rice based protein with a bit of ensure for the extra fiber, that sounds like a good plan, will report back :)

I like the Nutribiotic brand Plain Rice Protein.  It has no added fiber or sugar.  It took me a long time to weed through all the other protein shakes that contained sugar, fiber, or milk products.

Thank you! If I have trouble with the flavor/fiber I will try the plain.. I will have to be on a four week liquid diet post surgery so I'm sure I'll be fighting cravings and need some sugar and fiber, unless I can't tolerate it in which case I've now got a back up :) Charlie I'm not out for weight gain- ack :) thank you tho!
