  13. I had abit of broth yesterday and that was fine , I had about 6 tablespoons full . But when I try and drink my Powerade zero (room temp) or my protein shake it hurts really bad.
  14. I am struggling to take a few sips of water I just had to take 10mls of my medication and just that was so hard to swallow , I hope I am not doing something wrong. How long until this pain fades away

    Hey , I just joined recently , had my sleeve done on Tuesday , still feel absolutely crappy . I’m from Melbourne. My usual weight was always a 57-63 max , started going through depression, taking medications , anxiety , and I was stress eating , depression eating , annoyed at the husband eating , everything made me eat , until I got to my highest of 89kg
  16. Good luck with everything !! Hope it all goes good for U ❤️
  17. The first 6 hours after u wake up it’s kind of like a burning and tense feeling in ur stomach , feels very painful and uncomfortable And yet that it’s more just a tense feeling of pain
