I know I should NEVER have carbonated beverages as the CO2 bubble can stretch the stomach. Soooooo, as I enjoy a good beer, any options? For example, any non-carbonated beer? How about Guiness - I think they use low levels of Nitrogen instead of carbonation. Any other ideas?

well... I would say you could pour your beer into a glass. That would get rid of some of the carbination, then you could maybe stir it around a little to release more carbination and let it go a little flat. Altho.... flat beer???? Ick! Beer was meant to be cold and carbonated!

My Friend, there are simply better things in life than Beer.

one of those things is :

Red Wine

or

Port Wine.

Guiness is the only beer I have found not to have carbonation. For me, it's a little strong. I prefer to stick with vodka if I'm going to have a drink.

I miss beer.

I don't have much more to add than that :) Luckily, I also adore red wine so I'll live.

Yep, me too. I REALLY miss my beer. I also enjoy wine but it just not the same as beer. I have not attempted the Guiness, maybe I will give that a shot but WOW...that is a lot of calories. I knew giving up beer would be the HARDEST thing for me after this surgery. Food....no problem. Beer....not so much. :)

I see Dr. Malley at the Malley Surgical Center in Kansas City.

He doesn't buy into carbonation stretching the pouch. He said if you poured it in a baggie and closed it up it wouldn't stretch out the baggie, so why would it stretch out your stomach?

I am NOT NOT NOT telling anyone to ignore drs. orders, it is just another viewpoint.

I have not drank beer yet...But I have had soda and wine coolers and i felt no problems...

I just had a fill today under fluroscopy and the doctor said my pouch looks wonderful better then the day I was banded.

Now I dont drink soda or wine that much maybe 1 time a month and never more then one so with that said judge for yourself if it is worth it or not...

Since loosing my weight, I get a buzz on real quick, like 1/2 a drink. I don't do beer, either. But, I have had tequila. Oof! it hit me real quick. And it was the worst hangover I have had in 43 years! Be careful. You will not be able to drink what you could when you were heavier. Karen(kll724)

I drink beer. Sometimes it gives me the hiccups, which is embarrassing while drinking an adult beverage. I've been banded 3 years on Tuesday. I had an upper GI last September, my pouch is fine. I don't chug it, but liquids don't stay in the pouch.

Follow your doctor's orders, though.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
