  1. Sleeved on 12/23. I was on a break from my doctoral studies. I started back up on the 1st. I am having a hard time getting back in the swing of school. I assume it is residual anesthesia and healing. Did anyone delay school after sleeving? Not sure if I should take a break or knuckle through.
  2. Has anyone undergone a sleeve that has Hashimoto's thyroiditis? I have been diagnosed for 7years. Never fully under control. How did you weight loss journey go? I don't eat serious amounts of food and concerned weight loss will be marginal.

    Hypothyroid & sleeve

    I have a puny thyroid. On Synthroid 150mcg and Cytomel 25mcg. I have lost 45 lbs since 12/23. It has really slowed down the last month.

    Blurry vision?

    My anesthesiologist said the Scopolamine patch would make me blurry for a few days and it did.

    How long do you wait to drink after eating?

    30 minutes after the meal is my doctors order. Sometimes I take a few sips if I feel thirsty.

    Dry Lips

    Ok. The iron and more fluids did not help me. I am headed to the store today to try the avocado oil. Any other suggestions. They are starting to be bloody.
