    Ask your surgeon, but for me phase one included strained cream soups.

    sick of throwing food away.

    My wife and I were sleeved one moth apart. We were also not buying much but still throwing a lot away. I bought a vacuum sealer, and love it. I'll seal and freeze some of what we buy, and them pull it out later.

    Chicken too early dangerous?

    4 weeks post op my surgeon had me on lean protein diet from 4-6 weeks. Chicken is a staple.

    Side affects???

    Yes! I get the runny nose. So go to hear I'm not the only one.
  5. Said ahead of the pain with pain meds. If you need more or stronger demand them. The pain will pass soon. By day 4 I was feeling pretty good. I'm 6 weeks postop and feel great. You will get past this.

    One Month Out

    Hang in there! I'll be one month post op on the 10th, and trust me it gets better. The first 3-5 days I also thought it was much worse than I thought it would be, but by week 2 I was feeling pretty good.
  7. How much the gas pain sucks the first few days post op, and that I would still be hungry after surgery.

    Low carb wraps

    Look at the total carbs not net carbs. There is no actually research supporting net carbs. Net carbs were invented by marketing to cash in on the low carb craze.

    I was sleeved 8/10, and this week Bariatric advantage chewable has made me sick twice.

    Sleeve vs. Bypass

    I went sleeve for a few reasons. I was 41 bmi, and 236lbs when I started the process with a goal of 150. I didn't have as much weight to lose, and did not have gerd so sleeve was an obvious choice for me. My other reason sleeve is a much more straight forward surgery. My mother and sister both had bypass a long time ago, 15, and 10 years respectively. My mother had very few problems, but my sister has had many problems. She had had chronic anemia, and can not get her B12 levels up. She also had a blocked due to scar tissue that required surgery.

    Sleeve vs. Bypass

    There is no cure for diabetes, but both the RNY and sleeve stand a good chance of reversing it. RNY has a higher rate, but sleeve is still 60%-70% remission rate. http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/type-2-diabetes-guide/weight-loss-surgery-and-type-2-diabetes

    Sleeve vs. Bypass

    Completely disagree.
  14. It's the dreaded 3rd week stall, and I'm in it like you guys. It sounds like this is very common.

    Chicago Sleevers

    Dr O is awesome! I wanted him to do my sleeve, but insurance wouldn't cover him. I was sleeve 8/10 by Dr Wallace from the Kane center in Hoffman Estates.
  17. Any idea the nutrition break down of their sugar free flavors? I go to Maui a lot for work, and LOVE the shaved ice but it's so bad for you. lol

    Post Bariatric Barium Test

    Same here no leak check. My surgeon did it during surgery.

    Low carb diet??

    Beets don't need to be sugared or pickled to be higher in carbs. They are naturally higher in sugar. Remember all sugar is the same not matter if it comes from fruit or a can of Coke. Your body doesn't know the difference.
  20. Today is 2 weeks post op, and I'm feeling great! Down 18lbs, and thrilled to be done with the liquid phase! 1 month of liquids really sucks. Lol. I made a ricotta bake for dinner. It tasted amazing, but I was only able to eat a few bites.

    Help please!

    Keep up on your pain meds, and tell the nurse when you are in pain. Every day you will feel better, and very soon this will all be in your in your rear view mirror.
