    Anyone tried the Quest Pasta yet?

    Great New Snack

    I agree. Given that General Mills makes them there's certainly a possibility of getting them in other areas I suppose.

    What are the best vitamins?

    I was wondering about these. Did you try the chewable or "gummy" type?

    medical bracelets for Sleevers?

    I was thinking of just using a small labeller and putting "Gastrecomy - no NSAID or NGT" on the bottom of my license. GIve that I'm also a guy, it's extremely unlikely that I won't have my wallet on me and my license is right in front. Thoughts from the nurses/medical professionals?

    At my one month followup, my surgeon said my incisions looked good enough that I can go into the pool or beach now. I'm excited to hear about that. So from my own experience, I'd say 4-6 weeks, so you should be able to catch some late summer sun and fun.

    You can stretch your sleeve out. Also, if you consume HC/HF foods that slide through your narrow sleeve such as ice cream you will regain.

    Sleeved as of 4/22/14

    I'm assuming the zofran was proscribed by your surgeon? What do they say about your nausea? Can you give some examples as to pureed food you are consuming?
