  1. Hello every one, I am curently in the research / jumping through insurance hoops phase. I am going to be having the sleeve done with Dr. Teng in Las Vegas where I live, All of the apts i have had with him or his staff have been great but I was wondering if there was anyone out there that has all ready had the surgey with him?

    Bras

    okay so before surgery I was a 38 DD and that was getting a bit small for me but now that I have lost weight ( most of which I think came from my boobs) all I have are empty bags hanging from my ribs!! I cant seem to find any stores or brands that fit right and make them look presentable and I cant afford implants. does any one have a good sugestions on where I can find something good?

    Just Starting Out! Questions... :)

    Yes Taco Soup will be fine in your full liquid stage but not your clear liquid stage but you might want to add some chichen to the blender to add some protien or maybe some plain greek yogurt to make it "creamy" amd add some protien. Yes you can add protien powder to smoothies but you need to watch out for the carbs in them especially in the apple juice you add to those. you might just want to make your own smoothies from frozen fruit and non fat greek yogurt but even that may be to many carbs depending on your drs plan (most reqire less then 30 carbs a day) my dr used staples on my stomach and no I cant feel them and no they do not rust they are medical grade. as for the size of what he took out I dont know the exact details but he did give me a pic of it on a table next to his arm and it went from his wrist to his elbow... he said it was rather big for some one of my age and size. Good luck with your journey and keep asking questions they help more then just you they help the people who are to shy to ask.,

    HUNGRY

    did your dr perscribe you a PPI if not you may want to ask for one, your stomach is stil trying to make the same amount of acid as it needed at full size which gives you a false hunger. not all drs have you take them which I dont understand as I dont know what I would do with out mine

    ** HELP **

    I was in the hosptal over night and took two weeks off but could have been back after one week. so If you work from home I think you should be fine with one week.

    So I have a Military ball to go to this weekend and had to buy a dress and I bought a size 10 in the jrs dept the last time I bought a formal dress it was a size 20 and still had to add panels in the side made from the shawl!!! I was super excited. At the end of the shopping day I told my boyfriend that I was so happy since before a day of cloths shopping would have normally ended in frustration and tears from nothing fitting but this time everything fit. Yippy!!!

    New here and need some advice

    I think the sleeve will be a great option for you. I do believe that you will be able to loose the 150 pounds with the sleeve alone. Plus you will have the option to go to a full DS if you and your DR find it nessary. The sleeve is a wonderfull tool.

    Atkins protein bars

    I often eat them as a meal as long as they do not have to many carbs and they have alot of protein I don't see why they would be a problem just watch the amount of calories in them if you are using them as a snack

    Chewing Gum

    my dr mentioned someting about when you chew your brain sends signals to your stomach to produce more acid since it thinks you are chewing food and the up acid production will make you feel hungry

    Dreaming about food?

    I tottaly had those dreams. I would dream I was eating something I was not suposed to and then would start panicing cuz I ate it and thought I was hurting myself. Then I would have dreams where people wold try to get me to eat things and I would actually turn them down. I still have those dreams and I am 4 months out

    What to take to the hospital?

    chapstick, Water to rince you mouth out but not swallow, your own pillow (im very partial to mine) some people bring an I pod or a book but I was sleeping 90% of the time from the morphine slippers are a good idea cuz the no slip sox they give you are just not so comfy a robe or just a t-shirt and baskeball shorts to do your rounds in tooth brush and paste it felt so good to brush my teeth Well good luck with everything and let us nkow how it all goes
