Sleeved on 3/23/10 @ St. Elizabeth in Gonzales, LA, by the awesome Dr. Hargroder. Spent the night in the hospital and discharged the next day. YAY!!! Today started the clear liquid diet, got New Whey Liquid Protein 42g in 3oz @ GNC and mixed 2 vials with some fruit punch-flavored crystal light. Tolerating it pretty well, sipping Water in between. Walked 15 mins, need to do it 4 times and try for 2 miles daily, per surgeon's recommendation. Only some discomfort on incision sites but getting better every day!

Congratulations!!! I talked with a doc in OK day before yesterday and he said that your doc and his partner were the best and most experienced in the state, that he was aware of. Sounds like you were in good hands!!! I've actually thought about contacting them myself if nothing happens with insurance with the doc I've chosen in Shreveport. Do you know if your docs down there will fight for you with the insurance companies?

Take care of yourself! It's so great to hear you newly sleeved peeps doing so well right after!! God Bless!

      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 .
