Hope people see this post; I wasn't sure if I should start a new topic or continue it here: it's about
the diet after TIF/HH repair..
I had the TIF and a partial Nissen wrap a few weeks ago (12/23) and have a question for all you experts out there. I am in desperate need for a protein source and extra calories and have run out of ideas.
I am allergic to soy and milk/cheese. Watery beans have worked somewhat, as long as I don't have too much in one sitting/day.
I was trying coconut milk ice cream but the higher fat content was really hard on my stomach and I spent a sleepless few nights after having had it after dinner.
I am losing too much weight, I feel, and need a 'heavier' food that I can handle. Peanut butter didn't work either.
SO, protein source ideas and ways to load calories. Any ideas, folks??

PS perhaps I ought to call my doctor, too.....but ideas are welcome.
