Will drinking Complan meal replacement give me pain?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I'm too scared to eat now had a couple of attacks of pain and have a constant tight achy back.

But I have some Complan meal replacement powder in the cupboard (you can make with milk or water i think)

Will this stuff give me trouble?

    For me eating too little was as bad as eating the wrong foods. The stored fat in my body would break down and cause an attack. Try and eat some lean protein ie salmon, chicken, turkey and greek yogurt as well as topping off meals with lots of fruits and steamed veggies to keep everything moving and your belly from getting too empty. Hope you get better soon.

    I ate lots of fruit , pitta bread with tomato and cucumber . Do try and eat something or you'll get too weak for any operation ( if that's been recommended ) 

    but also you can't get too scared as a consultant told me that sometimes , no matter how careful you are you can still get stones coming out of the gall bladder , so just try your best and hope for the best . 

    Hope you feel better soon .

    You heard it twice now Claire, not eating will really create possibilities for all sorts of issues, go with some good suggestions here (I think the first one mentioned salmon but all in there are good and researched)

    Feel the force wink
