Just wanted to ask regarding the stuck feeling - does anyone know if it is the same kind of stuck feeling you get with the lap band.

If it is, then now I am getting quite anxious because I decided to get the sleeve done and was actually looking forward to it.

Now I am having second thoughts...

Help please.

You also have to remember everybody's bodies are different. For me, I've only gotten that "stuck" feeling once with my sleeve. It was not as painful and I didn't PB, slime like I did with the band.

This happened on a piece of chicken within the first couple of days of me transitioning to solid food with the sleeve.

It is not the same feeling in my opinion. With my band, things were stuck forever, and I would slime until I would force myself to vomit. With the sleeve, it's a little tightness in my sternum area, and then the piece of chicken moved down on it's own.

Eating with the sleeve is similar with the band in the early days. Chew, chew, chew, slow, slow, slow, for me, I wouldn't trade my sleeve for another band even if someone paid me.

No, I don't think it's the same at all. With the band it usually stays stuck until it comes back up. With the sleeve, it feels stuck for a few seconds, then you can feel it go down.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
