    Hair Grow Back?

    That is something I would like to know. I am 7 months post op and started losing my hair at about 5 months out.
  3. I have no regrets since having the sleeve done. I am 7 months post op and have lost about 150 pounds, and that is without exercising about 3 months.
  4. It is common, I was like that in the beginning. Do your best to get your protein and water in!

    whats the deal with sugar free post op?

    I was told by the nurse to only use Stevia, not sure why. I use to use sweet n low. I don't think any of them are healthy.

    Cauliflower pizza dough?

    Sounds and looks great! I will definitely have to try it!
  7. I am 6 months post op and I can eat about 3/4 of a piece of toast. I know that a 6 inch sub would be too much, but maybe a 3 inch would be do- able. Occasionally I will do 1/8 to 1/4 cup of rice or potato. I eat a few crackers from time to time. Personally, I wish that I waited longer before eating rice, potatoes, bread and etc. I feel like I am more hungry and eat more when I started eating those items. I may cut those carbs out and go back to just protein and veggies.

    I use Jay Robb egg protein in Chocolate flavor. I haven't had any problems with it, it has been the only one that I have been able to tolerate. I hope you find one that works for you.

    I couldn't handle whey protein, so I switched to egg protein and tolerate it well.

    me and protein don't mix

    I had a lot of problems post surgery with protein drinks. My NUT recommended trying an egg protein, so I did Jay Robb egg protein powder and it changed everything. It taste good and I tolerate it fine. chocolate is my preferred flavor, I do not like the strawberry. The vanilla is ok, I just add different flavors of Torani sugar free syrup. Before Jay Robb I had tried numerous protein drinks, they just didn't agree with me. Such as, premier protein, Nectar, isopure, pure protein and probably more.
  15. You look absolutely amazing!

    post op soda

    I go for my 3 month post op appointment this Friday and I will be asking about drinking POP I tried a sip of diet coke about a month ago and wasn't impressed with the taste. A couple of weeks ago I tried diet 7 up, and liked it. This week I tried diet A&W diet root beer and liked it. But, I don't want to drink POP if it will harm my sleeve, so I will talk to my doc and NUT.
  17. I took and still take numerous medications. I didn't have any problem swallowing, my problem was with being nauseous. Especially in the beginning, when you aren't eating food. I also had to spread the mess out, so not to take too many at once. I never had any problems with not being able to sip enough water. I am almost 3 months post surgery and I can actually take some big "gulps" now.
  18. Feel free to add me too tdguill on there also

    Suggestions on what to eat?

    I had surgery on 3-18-13. I have eaten baked tilapia, and did fine. Ground turkey, chicken, pork tenderloin. I had bacon the other day. I do numerous types of cheese, Greek yogurt, eggs and egg beaters. I tried beef once, but I think it was too soon. I also use jay Robb egg protein powder in chocolate . I take lactaid before dairy products. Hope this helps
  21. You look beautiful! Congrats!!

  23. I did ok with the protein drinks pre op, but had a really hard time post op. I can not stand Isopure, just thinking of it makes me gag. I can't stand nectar powders, premier protein. I tried the Jay Robb egg protein powder and I can tolerate it, but only the chocolate flavored. This has made all the difference in the world!

    Calcium chews ?

    I ordered bariatric advantage chewable. I thought I was getting the chewy ones, caramel is really good, but what I got was chocolate flavored chewables, which taste chalky.
