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!
