    When can I have some rice? Lol

    i tried some rice with small portions of beef first time after surgery some 6 and a half months later lets just say 6 or 7 spoons and i was full ... i use to remember before surgery eating a whole plate of rice and meat and never feeling full lol...

    my doc said i can occasionally take nsaid with the sleeve..i only take it when i am in pain due to back issues i have..
  13. johnedwin


    that is why i chose the sleeve evwn though i was diabetic and had gerd.. for that reason i depend on nsaid for all my aches and pains related to the obesity i carried for more than 25 years

    if you do research you can tolerate nsaid if you have the sleeve.. the bypass you cannot take any nsaid..

    Gastric bypass or sleeve

    gerd can be controlled with meds.. i am living example.. i rather have that then the risk of ulcers stomach perforations nutritional deficiency and other issues related to the bypass

    Gastric bypass or sleeve

    your more likely to get hiatal hernia from bypass surgery stomach ulcers or perforation etc etc etc. from the bypass..

    Gastric bypass or sleeve

    i have taken 3 nsaid the last few weeks due to some nagging back pain issues no problem btw way my bariatric doctor and surgeon said you can occasionally take them thank goodness i choose the sleeve over the bypass
