It is ok to drink protien shakes, just remember he'll have almost no stomach at first so just a view ounces at a time will satisfy his hunger. It takes 6 months to fully recover.

After bariatric surgery, patients require 60-85gms of protien perday. doctors may recommend you to stick to liquid food for some days. So it becomes necessary to drink items that are protien rich.
