I have went to clear liquids for a few days, and today b/c I feel good but zero energy from jello and juice.. I am attempting to add in 2 low residue foods today. Also I m drinking lots of fluids.  What else do you typically do ?

I always try to take small walks. Seems to help with the energy level and remember to take the eating slow. Since you've been on clear liquids, even the low residue diet may cause some pain and diarrhea. That's pretty normal...for me anyway.
