    Oldest Sleeve?

    I don't see how that is possible.. this surgery has been used for years with people that have had stomach cancer... It's not new by any means! Julie

  5. When I had my surgery with Dr. Kelly he was revising someone from the gastric bypass with the band to a sleeve. She rode in the van with me. She said Dr. Kelly is the only one she trusted.. My sleeve surgery with Dr. Kelly was awesome. He is highly skilled at the sleeve.. Julie

  8. I would do 2 shakes a day plus a healthy meal of protien and veggie for a couple of weeks . It shrinks the liver and that way you won't have to worry about your liver being to large. Julie

    Food Smells Different.

    I do hair and nails and right after surgery my smeller was on overdrive.. I could tell you which customers ate garlic the night before from about 2 feet away. It has gotten back to normal now. Julie

    Time Off From Work

    Everyone is differnet. I am a hairdresser and own my own salon . I had surgery on a Thursday and was back to work the following Thursday. I only did Part time, but really couldn't have been gone too much longer. Customers thought I only had my gall bladder out. Which I did , but along with my sleeve. Julie

    Need A Recipe Fast!

    EASAdvantage makes a strawberry ready to drink that tastes like a shake. You could put it in a blender with some berries and ice and I bet it would be very close to a shake. Julie

    Timing of your surgery

    I am having mine 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. So no Turkey for me this year... This will actually be the very fisrt holidays that I haven't gained weight!!!! My husband said I didn't have to cook Thanksgiving dinner , but Iwould not do that to my kids.. Just because I had surgery doesn't mean they should all go without. They have all offered to help me though I will be on full liquids by that time. I will be okay. By Christmas I should be on to more regg. food. Julie

  21. I have also been told to take thyroid meds on and empty stomach and NEVER with any thing else . supplements cancel out the synthroid.... Please ask your Dr. Julie
