    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.

  9. I loosley followed it, primarily for Breakfast and lunch, but had a normal dinner. The one exception was the day before (clear liquid). That I stuck to exactly.

    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?
  16. You can't have an egg? Odds are you won't be able to eat more than that anyway.

    You should be fine. Using straws isn't recommended because you will intake air on every sip causing more gas. For some wls folks the opposite seems true.

    Problems with H2O

    It seems to get better with each passing day, for me at least. I stocked to cabinet full of Crystal light just to help.

    Constant saliva

    Are you on an acid inhibitor such as Prilosec/ omeprazole? The excess saliva seems to be a common gsv issue.

    Any Pa sleevers?

    Hey PA Sleevers! I'm a little over a week out. No issues other then some head hunger. Would love to make some local sleeve buddies. I'm now in Media (delco).

    Well 20% regain is expected by many programs. Outside of that, I've found that most people regain larger amounts because they stop going to support meetings when they are years out - they really help keep you on track.
