    My coordinator has scheduled my dtr's revision from band to sleeve with a Dr Juan Arellano. We are having issues trying to find/get info on this surgeon. We would feel much better if we had info that would allow us to make a more informed decision.We would greatly appreciate anything any of you could tell us. This is too serious not to go into the surgery informed. Thank you so much. A concerned/nervous mom & dtr.

    Sleeved Over 3 Years Ago

    Hi, I am back on the forum after being totally away for over 2 yrs. I was sleeved April 2009. I had a very normal journey. It was very hard but "I followed the rules" . It was NOT easy but I have had no complications. My start wt was 332 and I have held/maintained my wt at 180# with in 5 # until Dec of 2011. I have gained 10-15 # and not having success at getting it off. Decided I had to get my mind more centered so I came back to the forum. I have not seen any posters that I recognize but I'm sure there are some around from 3 yrs ago. I am now able to eat more and guess what? I obviously am. I can eat most things. I will share what I am eating as a veteran sleever.For Breakfast I have the chocolate costco Premier Protein drink in 8 oz of coffee. It makes it a coffee mocha type drink. I have 1/4- 1/2 slice of toast. I don't like crusts so I cut the crusts off. I have cold steamed veggies or cheese stick and 5 rice crackers mid morning. lunch is 2-4 oz of protein & 1/2 cup veggies. dinner same type meal. I have something crunchy for snack at night. I eat 6 times a day. I don't get hungry but I get light headed if I don't eat every 2-3 hrs. I agree with what has been posted. First off congrats on ALL your achievements. You have done great. I also suggest you start over with the 5 Day Pouch Diet and then follow your original dr's guidelines. That is kinda what I plan to do. I WANT my 180 # mark on scale again. This gain has to stop. Good luck to you. Hope to see you post your steps to success. I would love to hear from other veteran sleevers. Carolnphx.
