  2. depends on dr. Mine only requires 2 day liquid. Thank god cause i've seen some people on here talking about 2 or 3 weeks pre ops diets.

    38 BMI and only 75 to lose

    I had the sleeve done back in 2011. do your research if you have reflux. I am about to go in for revision surgery to RNY because due to the sleeve I now have severe gerds. I've been suffering from it for the past 5 years. Make sure you research each surgery. I think I read that if you suffer from acid reflux you should not get the sleeve. since coming back on here I have noticed a lot of people being revised from sleeve to RNY.

    Sleeve With A Toddler?

    My son had just turned 3 when I had my surgery. I'm not a single mom ( but was with my first ) My son is a nut and doesn't stop all day, my husband works so I am home with him alone from 6:30 am - 8 pm everyday... I had my surgery on a Wed stayed in the hospital Thurs and Friday by Saturday most of my pain was gone and I was pretty much just sore, he was not a problem at all. There was no climbing on mommy but I would lay in the bed with him and cuddle in place of him laying on me while sitting up or sitting on my lap. I was 43 when I had me surgery, and think you will be fine, but it all depends on how you heal everyone is different.

    1 Year Surgiversary! Hooray!

    Happy Surgerversary... you look great
  9. I started at 240 i'm 5'3" goal is 135 and my current weight is 149
  10. Same thing here, but in the hospital he gave me a Ibuprophin iv drip because the other meds made me so sick lol??????? Maybe it was different because I wasn't taking it orally ???
  11. The best thing about this surgery is that you will eat normally again, you will have constant portion control and will never be able to eat like you used to, but you can eat what you want. in the beginning right after surgery it is important to eat in the stages your dr. tells you for healing purposes and the losing stage you follow what may seem like seem like a diet, but eventually you will bring normal eating back in I am 8 mos and eat everything I used to, just healthier if that makes sense lol.
  12. My dr. allows me to take stuff for pain, that is why I chose this surgery, if may allow all or only certain ones so as always you should check with your own dr. call them and ask him, the nurse or the PA there is always someone there to help if you can't get your dr. himself
  13. you like me will be on mushy's as soon as you have your leak test. I ate alot of refried Beans melt some cheese on it, Liz told me I could put some chicken in a blender and eat that, bake some ricotta cheese topped with some mozzerella cheese. it is so hard to explain how little you will be able to eat two bites from a baby spoon and I was done, so you will have to get most of your Protein in with shakes, she allowed me to have smoothies since we are on mushies I added greek yogurt with calorie countdown milk and sugar free torani syrups for flavor, they allowed me to count my smooties or Protein Shakes toward my fluids also, yogurt went down real nice and didn't cause me any pain. I still don't get all my protein in there was days when I did but the majority of the days I didn't. you have to really concentrate on it, it can be done but you have to remain conscience of it. I have a video of the hospital if you want to see it PM me your email and I'll send it to you...

    We are allowed NSAIDs, but I would always check with your doctor. it's stil the same stomach just smaller. Didn't your doctor send you home with something for pain?
