Any Bay Area California Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I'm just starting the process, anyone near Santa Cruz or Santa Clara? I will be going through Kaiser Santa Clara and would appreciate some local support.

I am not from the Bay, but am close-ish lol I am from Mendocino County, about 3-4 hours north of SF. I know someone that went to the Kaiser in Santa Clara.

I am sure there are tons of people on here from that area, but wanted to offer support anyhow.

Thanks, I've gotten no responses, so I was getting a little discouraged.

Maybe there aren't as many in this area as I thought?

I do appreciate your reply.

Hi Kate, I live in Santa Cruz and had my surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital (Blue Cross). My surgeon is out of San Francisco, but has offices all over including San Jose. But I'm pretty sure he doesn't work with Kaiser.

Where are you in your process?

I've only gone to the about orientation, will go to the surgeon orientation in about 3 weeks, I'm just starting.

Would love to talk with you if you're amenable to that.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
