  1. Dang straight sss! I hope that anyone on the fence between sleeve and band will investigate more and make the right decision. (SLEEVE)
  2. I am trying to get as much protein in as I can early in the day so I add the whey protein to bump it up. I add the Collagen protein(another 10Gs) because collagen is amazingly good for your skin hair and nails. My wife mixes it in her morning coffee. Since I started taking it my heels do no crack anymore. It is good stuff in other words.

    Must Haves For Surgery Day

    #1 most important thing....DRY MOUTH SPRAY!!! Don't leave home without it!
  5. Oh and I get the lions share of my protein in right out of the gate with a Body Fortress 40G shake, add 20G whey Protein, and add 10G Collagen powder protein and blend with ice for a shake you can drink on for a while in a Yeti.
  6. I am not sure if I am expecting to get on the scales and see a 5# weight loss one morning from the day before or what but I can't stay off the scales. I have got to go to once a week!

    sleeve post op hunger

    I take an anti anxiety pill nd it too will add some weight to ya. You may experience some hunger for a few days but it should pass as the portion of your stomach that was removed had the hunger hormone creates hunger. I am 7 weeks post op and still have no hunger. I eat nd find myself looking in the fridge when not even truly hunger. Just an old habit. Get some SF popsicles. At 15 cals each you can eat 2, 3 4 and not fill guilty. It does not bother me with people eating around me. Once you get to the soft/ semi reg diet it gets better. You have got this...hang in there.
  9. I like capsules. The price is incredible for a year.
  10. I too had the God forsaken band when I was 49. I had revision to sleeve at 63...on 2/23 and wish I had done it about 12 -13 years earlier. You will not regret this decision. You will be able to eat some things with less trouble with the sleeve... just smaller portions. I work from home but had surgery on Tuesday and went back to work on Thursday...I could have gone back to work on Wednesday but had a 4 hour drive home. The only pain I experienced was on the day of the surgery and when I had my first BM post op (8 days later). I stayed so doped up in the hospital that I really didn't have much pain. Best decision I have made in a while. I am down 42 lbs since Jan 26th. Good luck...I am glad I did this.

    Maybe TMI

    No...And I had been taking stool softener for several days at that point and still do take them.
  12. Thanks Cat! I was already under 800 cals most days. Not constipated. Water or MUSCLE...Yes!

    Drinking after surgery

    I could drink liquid normally after surgery. I understand many have to sip but I did not. Quantity changed that I could drink at a time and yes you will know if you are drinking too much at once. I feel sick for few minutes until it passes. You will learn fast.
  20. What are you consuming during the day?
