    A trip to the hospital

    I was also sleeved on the 21st and am on soft foods. I usually have a protein shake in the morning to get in almost 50 g of protein and lunch usually consists of cottage cheese and applesauce. I have tried tuna with mayo and it sets okay along with different soups like vegetable beef and tomato. I also have mixed plain yogurt with s/f jellos or puddings to get in extra protein..just introduce different foods slowly. I haven't tried scrambled eggs yet b/c I have read where many people have trouble with them.

    Any Regrets?

    I am only two weeks post-op and the only thing I regret is not getting the sleeve sooner. I no longer use my CPAP nor take any pain meds I have been on for the last 8 months for my degenerative arthritis. The only negativity that I have dealt with is people saying "your taking the easy way!" By all means, this is not the easy way out. It is a tool to help you lose weight and give you the restriction you need so that you don't gain it back. I don't know about you but speaking for myself I have been successful at losing weight in the past but never have been able to keep it off for a length of time and now that I am sleeved I have the restriction that is needed. Good luck to you and remember this is a lifetime marathon...you will learn as you go !!

    Pain when I swallow

    I am only four days post op and noticed the cramping earlier in the week but now I use a spoon so I make sure that I take small sips. Popsicles didn't sit good with me until last night. Just take it slow ...I got in 45 g of protein by doing going slow and using the spoon. Good luck to you.
