    Fear of STRETCHING Sleeve!

    I was so happy to see the question because stretching is so scary to me. I have my surgery on May 6th. I've lost 10 lbs. in preparation as directed by my doctor. I was only eating Protein and a low carb veggies. Now I am only having 4 drinks a day. It is very hard for me, but I've been perfect! I love carbonation. I don't need a soda; am happy with carbonated Water. I am really struggling with not being able to have it. So, hearing that some of you do consume carbonated drinks is so cool! I am very nervous about this operation changing everything I know about food. I love to eat and am determined to love me more. Thanks for your information!!!!! I LOVE THIS WEBSITE. Lindemat
  2. I will be going to England this summer. We have a cottage in SW Devon. I would love to buy all the shakes, etc. there. Taking liquids on planes is not OK and I don't want to use my baggage allowance on food! Where can I get shakes? We won't have a blender so I think powders will be difficult. Do I even need to worry about shakes. I'll be post op by 4 months. I know people in England have bariatric surgery!!!! thanks for your help in advance.

    Lost almost too much weight

    My doctor warned me not to lose too much weight, too. I have 100 lbs to lose so it seems impossible to hear that! I am so careful now and I've only lost 4 lbs. However, I think I will put some cheese on my morning omelet and a a better lunch of a good salad. I crave crunching. I agree with you so much when you say that you don't want to regain your pre-op weight! It seems to crazy. I am so overweight now. I picked the potatoes and corn out of my Soup last night. I think I will still do that since it is fatty liver making. I have a doctor's appointment in couple of weeks. I'll see what he recommends and let you know. The post-op problems of others scare me so much. I sure want to be comfortable afterward. I am practicing chewing and having trouble. The food is getting so mushy that it starts going down without my swallowing it! So I am left chewing while some is drifting down. That sounds like I might choke on it. SUGGESTIONS?

    Anyone have regrets?

    why are you regretting your surgery? I 'm not sure what is going on. Do you hurt? are you wanting ice cream and can't have it ( that would be me). Please help me understand.
