    You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  3. Too many fake sweeteners tenf to give me migraines. Try a whey Protein that doesn't have sweeteners or is sweetened with stevia. I add Isopure unflavoured to broth and pureed Soups. Jay Robb makes a protien powder sweetened wi t h stevia. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  4. Currently Isopure is my favourite. I like the unflavoured mixed with homemade vegetable Soup I puree. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  5. Some loose a lot, but I've only lost 4 lbs in the 7 days I've been on liquids of 800 calories or less. I think I actually did better when I was replacing 2 meals with a shake and eating a normal balanced meal. Around 1200 calories. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    Too many symptoms...

    Urgent care or Emergency room if it gets too bad. If the hospital you had surgery at has an urgent care I would start there. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    Sleeve vs Bypass

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I had a long talk with my surgeon and we both agreed the sleeve was the best option for me given my tendency to be naturally low on Iron, the fact I'm on high doses of steroids 2 to 3 times a year for asthma (unrelated to my weight), and no history of GERD. I'm scheduled for July 13th. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    Sleeve or GB?

    @@snokb04 thank you for your post, I also have asthma and have been concerned about RNY which I'm scheduled for and want to chang to the sleeve. The steroids I take for asthma 2 to 3 time a year in high doses made me nervous with the RNY malabsoprtion . I'll ask my surgeon about switching. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  9. I have 6 weeks scheduled. But playing it by ear. I have a lot of sick time and I'll be going back into a high stress job plus a drive an hour to and from work. My guess is I'll be back after 4 weeks. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    CALLING ALL JULY 2016 SLEEVERS

    I'm scheduled for July 13th. Just started the 2 week liquid diet. I can have protien shakes and pureed soup with protien powder added. I don't really like canned or box soups so I'm thinking of making homemade vegetable soup and sticking it in the Ninja. Has anyone else made homemade soup for their liquid diet? Any good ideas?
