Even if they didn't take enough, they still took some. You shouldn't be gaining.

Not entirely accurate. It's possible to gain weight even with a correctly performed sleeve surgery. Eating habits still play a very important role in weight loss. It's possible to consume malts, milk shakes, fatty or buttery foods high in calories that slide through the sleeve more easily. It's also possible to keep eating as space becomes available. I had to watch for this during Christmas and Thanksgiving because the easily accessible food made it tempting to eat a little something every 30 minutes or so. Given the time during a day I could have easily consumed an entire pie as well as my dinner, especially if I avoided denser Proteins and stuck with just the high cal foods.

I have a bad habit of skipping logging when I know I've been bad. :)

I watched a video of a plication procedure. If one of those sutures popped, she would most certainly feel it. It's not just a single layer of sutures, it's layer upon layer upon layer of the stomach folded in on itself and sutured closed. She would feel that and she would definitely KNOW.

This really just sounds like a case of a large sleeve and a patient that has to learn to manage that or look at a further procedure like the Duodenal Switch.

I think a GI Floro Scan would be best to show not only size but how food and liquids pass through it

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
