    No post op packet (that I know of) is going to say enjoy carbonated beverages. There are standards that are decided across the board and that is one of them. Ask your team for the real reason why carbonation is out for a better understanding and you can decide how to move forward. There is a stevia or natural another sugar substitute that is root beer flavored. You can add it to plain water. Safe Journey 🎈

    Fat shaming ?? Post op over 4 yrs

    Given the opportunity, I actually find myself going out of my way to smile, say hi, or even provide a compliment to someone overweight. A small gesture of kindness goes a long way. I think I do this because I remember (and honestly I hope I never forget) how it feels to be overweight and self-conscious that people are looking at you. I will admit sometimes I think to myself, God I hope they somehow are able to have the opportunity I had and look into surgery! I would never, ever think to randomly suggest surgery unless someone asked me about it.

    Can I have zevia sugar free soda?

    Thank you. I just ordered the last one on there cause it said no sugar alcohols. And saw they had orange breath mints too. That were the same. That I’m gonna get for my apron at work. Cause I always worry about my breath. Thank you so much. This sounds like a great fit. Fixes a craving why staying on track. They also have a ginger ale one I found. With actual ginger extract. So it might help the stomach. Without the soda and sugar. Thank you. I can’t say that enough.

    Protien and Broth!

    I prefer Protein20 protein water from Sam's. Not quite as sweet. Also, the other ones can be mixed with sugar-free lemonade to lessen the sweetness. Don't get too concerned about your protein right now, hydration is the most important. It takes a lot of people a few weeks to get all their protein

    Vitamin Patches

    But you get vitamins and minerals from your diet I don't know how you can attribute it to the Patches, when there's other variables in your diet. Presumably you also take sublingual vitamin b and calcium supplements? Now for the sake of simplicity I don't feel like arguing forever, but I think we can both agree the degree of efficacy is unproven. So why spend more money on something that is less proven
