So pretty much I had surgery on Tuesday (UPPP w/ tonsils, septoplasty, turbinectomy; sleep apnea related stuff). Hurts like nothing else but I'm dealing with it. Problem I'm having is getting protein (and just overall calorie intake in) - I figured I would just use whey shakes and would be okay, but adding milk is creating a film that coats the back of my throat and has me swallowing a lot more often than I would like to.
I'm making every effort I can to avoid shrinking up (obviously I'm going to a bit), and was wondering if you guys had ever tried any calorie-dense shakes that tasted good while not being too thick.
I tried adding olive oil and whey to just water, but it tasted like shit and the olive oil burned. I would appreciate any ideas!
