    I never even thought about that, my current protein is Fairlife so, it could be a good possibility! I've never tried the almond/dairy alternative. Thank you for your insight!

    Ooh, I didn't think of that. I do enjoy a sugar free pudding at night but not every day. I will start watching what exactly I'm eating. Thank you!

    Sorry if this question has already been asked, but is anyone else experiencing bloating after surgery. I mean, I'm nearly a month out and every morning I wake up bloated; it will dissipate after exercise and come back right before bed 😞 It is driving me crazy! Is this normal? What can I do!!! I did NOT experience this with the sleeve. 😩

    😩😩Any tricks on these gas pains? I’ve been walking and drinking my water but these pains sometimes are enough to knock the wind outta me

    @Nicole T and I get our surgery times at 2 PM! I've also been doing the "anxious" cleaning. My house never looked so good! The nerves are starting to truly set in!

    Does anyone have any recommendations on a chewable/ melt away vitamin that isn't incredibly vomit inducing? Can't swallow a pill until 30 days after surgery and I'm nervous. My first round with a chewable was not good 🤢

    If you still a recommendation, Bariatric Vitamins from ProCare are wonderful!

    Hello! New here

    Best of luck to you! My tip is to ask A LOT of questions. I was afraid to at first, and I regret that. Now I'm suffering horrible GERD and looking to revision from sleeve to bypass as a self-pay patient. 😪 In the end, you will know what is right for you!!! I look forward to your journey!!!
  14. I hope you are doing well! I am also getting revision due to GERD. I have found ZERO relief. Life is miserable.
