    Any June Sleevers?

    I am going through the same thing. I will bounce 3-4 pounds for a week or two then go down 4. Repeat. I have been doing that since surgery. Of course, I have to admit that this is how I lost with my lapband as well. I figure this is my life now. I am going to roll with it until the wheels fall off.

    Ghrelin Hormone

    Just throwing in my two cents worth. I haven't felt true hunger since the morning BEFORE surgery. I have not been hungry since I woke up. Right now, I'm using my son's internal clock to know it is time to eat. I figure I will have to set alarms when I go back to work. I just hope this feeling lasts.

    Tuna "burgers"

    I've tasted something similar made with salmon. It was very tasty.
  6. During my psych evaluation, I was warned this is a pattern of an eating disorder. I wouldn't start an unhealthy habit.

    Unjury Protein: Is It Just Me...

    Just keep in mind, even the ones you like now, you may HATE after your surgery so don't buy large quantities of any of them. I'm learning that one the hard way.

    Unjury Protein: Is It Just Me...

    I really liked the chicken soup flavor prior to surgery. I can't stomach it after... I had the unflavored when I had my lapband and it was ok. I can only assume it because of the taste change with the sleeve that is causing my dislike since I DID like it before. Now I am struggling to find anything that tastes good. I am ready for something more substantial even if it is just pureed beans.
  10. I had surgery on June 28th. I don't know what my weightloss is because I haven't weighed myself. I am going to let my doctor do it tomorrow at my 1 week follow up. I am on clears basically until tomorrow. I start full liquids tomorrow. I am ready for pureed! I want some beans or some tuna! Something that is not completely liquids! If I NEVER see chicken broth again...

    I hope they let you go home soon! I am truly sorry that things haven't gone exactly well. Prayers for a speedy recovery!

    I would start drinking the fluids AND put a call in to your doctor to let them decide if you need to go to the ER.
