    I put a couple of saltines in my Soup today......I'm in the soft food stage....and let them get totally mushy....big mistake.....HUGE. I will never do that ever again. No flour forever it is not worth it. Terrible stomach cramps, vomitting, and stuck food. HUGE mistake. Take it from me and don't do it.

    I am regretting everything about having this done right now. Every single thing I eat or drink except Water makes me nauseas. Everything. I'm not getting anywhere near my Protein and I have headaches. I am 2 weeks post op. I'm getting so discouraged and concerned.

    I posted a couple of days ago regarding my terrible trapped gas in my stomach after my sleeve procedure 5 days ago. I am now thinking I am getting the gas after having my Protein Shakes which leads me to believe I am having a hard time digesting the whey. My question is, I bought a vegan Protein Powder that is free of lactose and I hope that helps. I was also considering taking digestive enzymes. Does anyone have experience with these post op? I will discuss with my doc at my 1 week post op appt but thought I would also come here for some support. Thank you!

    I completely understand your concerns, I struggle with depression as well. In my personal experience, the best thing for me is to be seeing a therapist during such a big life change. It gives you an outlet for those emotions. I started seeing one 2 weeks ago who specializes in eating disorders because she has a lot of experience with WLS but she is also a therapist for anxiety and depression, she has been a huge help already.

    I'm in dfw as well but girl, why have you not been following the diet? I look at it as the first test as to my willpower for the upcoming life change after surgery. Take the time to mentally prepare yourself for a more restrictive eating style. Kick it into gear! You can do it!

    Well I can completely understand where you are coming from. All I can tell you is that I have really been serious about positive affirmations, good books to help, and therapy. We can absolutely move past this relationship with food and fear to a much more peaceful place and I is going to be so worth it. Don't worry, you are certainly on your way

    Hi! I am an emotional eater also so I completely understand where you are coming from. I also gained all of my weight after the birth of my daughter, it is such a stressful time! I too began by researching surgeons and scheduled a consult. They suggested the sleeve which sounded better to me because I was concerned about the whole foreign body thing. I am self pay also. I lurk on the discussion board often and watch YouTube videos. I have started reading books and seeing a therapist for my emotional eating issues. I am going through True Results in Fort Worth, Texas for my surgery. I am happy to help any way I can or if you just need a buddy.

    Hello all! I am new to post but have been lurking like a mad woman! I am trying to absorb as much information as possible and have been so pleasantly surprised by how supportive everyone is. I have had my first consult with my doc, bloodwork, and am waiting on my psych clearance to set up my EGD. I am cautiously optimistic at this point. On of the things that I do struggle with is the question of what happens when you suffer from food addiction and go through VGS? I am afraid of the emotional issues I will have to confront once food is no longer my crutch. I had a severe bout of depression after the birth of my daughter which has led to this 100lb weight gain. I am looking at beginning counseling immediately and have began reading books on emotional eating. Any advice or experience is greatly appreciated!
