    Connecticut sleevers?

    I'm sure that when you began adding calories, your body realized it wasn't being starved and you started dropping pounds. This happened to me, I was sleeved 4/12/17 and I'm down 24.5 pounds. How are you doing now, my friend?[emoji4]

    Connecticut sleevers?

    I'm from CT, southeastern area! I was sleeved on 4/12/17 at Hartford Hospital also, with Dr. Tishler. Since starting my pre-op diet, I have lost 24.5 pounds. I'm off one of my Blood pressure meds and all of my pain meds! I keep my protein between 80-100 grams and have not had trouble with hair falling out. Hydrating is hard, but I mostly get all 64 oz. in. I was hoping to lose faster, but I think I was a little unrealistic. Nice to find all of you here! Suzanne

    As a nurse, the fastest route is first to take a Dulcolax suppository. If that doesn't work, do an enema on yourself, laying on your left side on towels in bed. As a nurse and a sleeve patient, I know the awful feeling you're going through. Once your stool is completely evacuated, take one dose of Miralax daily. Very safe and effective, until you are on solids and can add more fiber to your diet! I hope this helps [emoji4]

    Protein Goal too low?

    My doctor said 80-100 grams of protein daily also. My energy has been increased and I'm still losing steadily. I would encourage you to get a second opinion on that.
  8. I have an Aldi's in town, and I would like to know the brand of pre-seasoned turkey they have. I'm still on a puréed diet and I could really use a change! Do you just eat it plain with the low fat mayo?
