    Vegan Or Vegetarian?

    Here's an add-on to this.....I was sleeved on September 20th. That's all of 19 days. I'm on full liquids. I know my sleeve is ready for the pureed stage. Here's the kicker.... I'm scared to death to eat meat. I 'think' the fear is the POSSIBLE pain I will have after eating it. I have had not one complication from surgery. Not a lick of nausea. I have had no issues whatsoever eating after being sleeved. I'm not sure where this irrational fear of eating meat is coming from. Has anyone encountered this?
  2. My 19 year old son hasn't seen me since I had surgery two weeks ago. He came by for a visit while I was working in the kitchen today and said, "You look skinny, Mom." I was like WOW! It even brought tears to my eyes.....It's the simple things.

    Calcium Citrate...

    My doc says 1200 - 1800 mgs a day. Depending on the mgs per two or three times a day.

    I'm from Euless. Dr. D. Kim is my surgeon (Sleeved 9/20). I believe the fitness center is this link. http://www.yellowbook.com/profile/all-american-family-fitness_1863950976.html?classId=4327

    Surgery In 2 Days

    If we loved closer, I would so take you and pick you up. I would take care of your pups. I know you will do well. Don't panic. You'll do GREAT! Will be thinking of you. Can't wait to hear an update!
  9. To me the greasy look to it would be the culprit. I'm only 10 days out, but have found that just the smell of things tend to turn my stomach such as french fries and fried chicken strips. I didn't eat it, but watched my husband. Just the smell started to piss my sleeve off. Hopefully that's a good indication that I won't be eating that stuff. I'm sorry you were so disappointed in something you were so looking forward to!

    Bubble Guts

    Bubble Guts. Good description. I'm 6 days out. The best way I can explain what I feel in my stomach is as if I'm pregnant and am feeling the baby moving. It's not a delicate type of movement. I can FEEL my stomach moving. Rumbling and grumbling? Yes. I have NEVER felt my stomach move. It doesn't hurt. It's just very odd when it happens. At times it even feels like a contraction. Very, very odd.

    I sure ticked off my sleeve this morning. coffee. Decaf. Oh my. I won't be doing that again any time soon. I went right back to Water and my sleeve was happy again. Slow and easy.
