    U look great!
  8. I used my tax refund and save a little more to make it up then went to Mexico.
  9. I was also sleeved by Dr. Garcia. For the gas pain mine was gone by the time I came home. I did a lot of walking as others suggest was a good thing to do and it works for me. For the protein shake I think if you stop drinking it where are you going to get the recommend amount of protein since as 1 week out you are still suppose to on a liquid diet. You might have to experiment with different types and see if there's another one that will work for you. I did have a after taste in my mouth but that was from the sugar free products so I just stop eating sugar free. I went solely by the diet plan they gave me so I started the puree 17 days after surgery. Hope you find something that works for you. good luck!

    Need advice...

    As far as I read so far all doctors seems to have their own diet to follow. For my pre-op diet I was allowed protein shakes and salad for two weeks and the last 3 days clear liquids which include broth jello etc.

    Help, Ladies! Yeast infections since surgery! OMG, TMI!

    I had it after i got home from the hospital and it went away after my monthly. Its only being a month so i pray to god it dont reoccur. I did not know antibiotics can cause yeast infection. i was thinking that might have been the cause since i was on antibiotics for 2 weeks after surgery i just wasnt sure. Thanks for the info because i was wondering where i got it from.

    So far, not loving my sleeve

    don't be too discourage it will get better and I know you hear those words before but it does. I am now a month out and loosing more than my first two weeks out. On my second week I lost 1 pound in a week to be exact and I was feeling the same way comparing to others who loosing 8 to 11 lbs. I realized as time goes by I am loosing more. I am now at an average at 5lbs per week. This all to say we all are different and will adjust to this weight loss journey at different amounts and pace. Keep hanging in there.

You are right I can't remember all the physicians and nurses that I met. You will need a pen and paper to keep track. Glad to know that you and your daughter had a wonderful experience and is doing fine. Congrats!!!
