I still have my band, and am trying to understand what full will feel like with the sleeve.....tonight I ate so much that my "lower" stomach got full - like sick full how you feel on thanksgiving prior to wls! Is this the kind of full you feel with the sleeve? If so, I am "golden" for the sleeve because I hate feeling this way!!!

For me I can take maybe 3-4 bites of say a sandwich and I'm full. Sometimes it feels like the food is in my throat. Not really a sick feeling maybe like pressure but up higher in your stomach. Then I start burping and the food slowly starts to go down. Might be cause I ate too fast or didn't chew it well enough. But it eventually goes down

I am 'full' after two or three bites, but trust me..that sounds better than the reality of living it. I am 12 weeks out. Best of luck to you!

Like CarrieP,It doesn't take much to get that full feeling. Sleeved in March. I feel comfortable with 2- 3 ounces (volume). If I try to eat anymore--I get that uncomfortable "in the throat-burpy feeling" too. A quarter of a sandwich is almost too much.
