    Any January 2018 Sleevers?

    Good job everyone! I'm 5 days postop and feel exponentially better today! No pain getting out of bed anymore! 🙌🏼 It was my mom's birthday this week so I just got back from lunch at Texas Roadhouse. My favorite 😩 I expected to leave in tears after watching everyone eat ribs and steak but you know, I was just fine! I was able to enjoy time with my family and not feel deprived. I felt victorious!

    Halitosis (Bad Breath)

    Oh man. That (literally) stinks! Great trade in though right?! I am 5 days post op and EVERYONE around me has the. Worst. Breath. Ever!!!!!!! 🤢

    Little pain...

    Yes less cleaning for sure! Try not to overdo it.

    Little pain...

    How far out are you? I think less cleaning is in order

    Is belching normal?

    Don't trust the other end. 😜

    Strange New Pain?

    Someone in my FB group said that her surgeon did an internal stitch to help avoid a hernia and a pop could be felt when it breaks. It's supposed to break. Could be that!

    Is belching normal?

    My BFF is 8 months out and when I asked her about the burping she said "yes! Welcome to your new normal!" I'm only 4 days out so burping is my greatest joy right now. My guess is that there isn't room in the sleeve for food and air, thus the burps!

    Had my Surgery Today in the Morning...

    Wow that's so great!

    Surgery in 30 minutes

    That wait is the worst! Hope all goes well for you!!!

    Please, read and give me you opinion

    I think what it is going to come down to is how your surgeon and your primary care physician write about your weight loss attempts in their notes. That was my experience anyway. But to answer your question, it doesn't make it sound like it needs to be consecutive.

    Prayers! You got this!
  14. Is your tummy super stiff? I was great yesterday but this morning? Wow! So stiff. Burping and walking will help get the gas out. Hope we both feel better soon.
  15. I'm 2 days out and am having the same feeling. Try warm liquids...teas and broths. And try to get burps out.

    Only 3 Day-liquid diet??

    I have a 2 day clear liquid diet and surgery on Monday. TOMORROW!!!!!!! As said previously, all surgeons are different. I asked mine why his was shorter and he said in lower BMI patients he doesn't see a difference in a long vs short liquid phase so the shorter is adequate to shrink the liver.
  20. I have nothing useful, I'm sorry but just wanted to send hugs and prayers. I hope things improve soon. I am a stay at home mom of 4 and couldn't imagine trying to juggle that and work with so much pain, discomfort and low energy.

    Dates that don't revolve around food

    What about joining some running/fitness groups? I'm 17 years out of the dating game but it seems like a great way to meet people. If no romantic interests, at least some great friends.
  22. I love Hint water. Just enough fruit flavor to make it interesting without using artificial sweetener. The blackberry and the watermelon are particularly tasty but they are all good.
  23. Thank you so much! I hope things are picking up for you!
