Recommended Posts

It's not that I couldn't stop eating 4oz was not enough for me. In the hospital I was eating more then 4 oz. I really don't think I ate alot at all.

You could eat in the hospital??? I could only tolerate a medicine cup of liquid.

Eating in the hospital? All I got was ice chips until my third day and that was after I left hospital. Something isn't right.

Me too I still struggle with anything purée 4 oz liquid no problem and I am 3 weeks post..

It's physically impossible for you to have stretched your sleeve within 7 weeks by your own doing. I think you have either been given the wrong diagnoses or your surgeon is at fault. My surgeon says that it takes constant abuse of your sleeve (as in over a year) to stretch it. At 7 weeks out there's just no way you could of done this' date=' plus you would be very sick all the time.

I would seek a second opinion and check your surgeons work by let getting another surgeon to look at the photos taken after surgery.[/quote']

I asked my surgeon about this he said that's its impossible because It will start to leak but won't stretch that quick

Where did you have your surgery? This all sounds very bizarre to me! I couldn't drink a medicine cup of Gatorade until 3 days post op! I couldn't even imagine trying to eat a cream of anything Soup.

Sorry I have no advice and I hope this gets figured out for you soon. There is absolutely no way you've stretched your sleeve! Demand a swallow test. You can see on the X-ray machine how small (or not) your stomach is.

I am not trying to be funny but I think you are either confused with what your surgeon is telling you or maybe you had a different surgery cause what you are telling us is not scientifically possible :(

You can see it on X-ray too

You can see the staple line clearly and the stomach.

Demand a simple X-ray

I have copies of my X-ray my dr gave it to me because I wanted to show everyone my staples lol

Well I'm sorry that you feel that way. I didn't make this post to prove anything to you. I simply posted it because I wanted to know if anyone else went thru the same thing.

He did X-rays today's and That's how he came about the reason. I have already requested my surgery pictures today. I do know that I didn't have to drink the leak test stuff in the hospital because they said it was no need. I have a close friend that had the surgery in march of 2012, she referenced me to her surgeon for a second opinion. Once I have all that I need to know I will glad upload pics and paper.

This is not something that I came up with. As I have stated in previous post. I have never felt ANY of the things that you all have felt. I was in weds and out Friday on the treadmill sat and back at work on Monday. With not a on e of Any pain Meds. I walk and or work out 5 days a week. I eat what I am suppose to. I live with someone who had the surgery 6 months before me so if I were eat wrong she would have let me know. Only thing that she has ever said to me was that she thinks that I drink to much Protein. I am very afraid of losing my hair. My doc td me as long as I get my Protein in I should be fine. So I drink protein all day long. Drinking wise I probably get 120 grams a day not including the food I eat.

This is already a stressful thing for me so please please don't tell me I am confused about something that my SURGEON has told me. Weather it be right or wrong I no what was said to me. So I am now taking it to the me t level to get the problem fixed. Once again I just wanted to know of any surgeons I. My area or has anyone ever went thru this before.

Cut your Protein in half... Excess protein is stored on the body if not used. 120+ and food is wayyyy too much.

I hope this works out for you :(

Sorry your having to go thru this... I posted to you on another thread. Take care!!

In northern va. My surgery was at 9 I was in revelry u til 4. Woke extremely hungry but the urad wouldn't let me eat until the doctor came. He didnt come until the next morning he told me I didn't have to take the leak test and I could eat. I had two cups of chicken broth and one orange Jello and a cup of lemon crystal light. I will remember this forever. And that is be ause the nurse kept telling me I was the only one able to eat and walk for 20 mins or more. I litteray felt like I hadn't had anything done. I thought it was because of my age and because I have never been a lazy person. I'm a do it your self type girl.

Sounds like a malpractice suit. There's no way possible you could have stretched ...like others said...you would have a leak along the suture line before "stretching" since you're so early out. Not to be funny...but it sounds like no surgery was ever performed.

If I was to have a leak would I be in some type of pain or anything? Fever pain or anything

Yea you would be sick. It sounds like your doctor didn't do the surgery correct.

Who is your doctor?

Yes starting this week I have cut back to one drink and the rest Water. My primary told me to try that also. When I asked the surgeon today he told me that was fine but I have to disagree so I'm cutting back for two weeks to see if that works.

That's what I thought. I have been sick. Or felt any pain or anything. I snapped back to my life like nothing ever happen. My surgery was with blueprint surgical group

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
