I got sleeved on the 5th and it wasnt that painful the first few days. after i came home i started to feel the pain, specially the gas pains. Swallowing is a totally new experience. If i take a sip thats to big the pain i get in my chest from pain is so bad.

I cant wait for it to get better. Its not that i regret it, oh no, it just that its like learning to eat all over again. I have started to write down none scale victories. I want to exercise again, i want to play sports again, and most of all play with my kids without feeling tired

Sleeve on the 6th. Only needed one night in the hospital. Gas has not been that bad thus far. Doing well at the liquids and staying hydrated. In some discomfort but not a lot of pain.

I was sleeved on the 4th. Yes! The gas pains are no joke. The only that helped me was walking and taking teeny tiny sips of liquid.< /p>

I was sleeved the 4th and I'm suffering from soreness. Certain incisions hurt more. I had a lot of gas while I was In hospital but I did laps around the surgical ICU to get it worked out. Everyday gets better.

I was also sleeved on the fourth. I had a lot of nausea in the hospital but it subsided the 2nd day I was home. Wednesday I started developing a rash on my abdomen; doc thinks its from the dermabond. I started steroids today and have to go back in a week for a wound check.

My soreness isn't bad. I still feel some pain in my left shoulder. I had 2 doctor appointments today and had to go get my prescription filled but I'm feeling pretty good (aside from the itching).

I'm down 18.4 pounds already (though I'm sure most of it is Water weigh) and can already see it in my ankles! They are defined! I can't wait to start hitting the gym! Seeing the scale move is definite motivation to keep going with my liquids and Protein. I'm building up what I drink more and more!!

I was sleeved on the 4th, and the only real problem I am having is that I can't stand the Protein supplements. Any helpful hints?

Sleeved March 1. I spent 2 days in hospital. I couldn't sip anything thr first day so they kept me an extra day. Very painful drinking and sore belly. Getting better everyday. Had my first food processed meal today and I seem to be tolerating it ok.

I was sleeved yesterday! I felt great earlier today at the hospital with minor gas pains & nausea but once home the nausea began to feel worse. Especially after eating. But popsicles & walking are helping me feel better. Thinking of mixing some unflavored Unjury Protein Powder to some crystal light & making popsicles to help get my Protein in these next few days. Glad to hear so many Fellow March Sleevers are doing so well!

Congrats to all of you on your new sleeves! I was sleeved on Monday the 4th in Dallas. I'm feeling pretty good. My incisions are still sore. It's hard to get up from a chair. I've been doing a lot of walking around the house and even walked around the block yesterday. I'm trying so hard to get in the Protein and Water. I was told 60 oz of liquids and 60 grams of protein. I was able to get 40 oz of liquids yesterday so I'm trying to beat that today. I've really only had regular water, propel water, Popsicles, Unjury chicken broth, and cream of chicken strained with a scoop of unflavored unjury protein powder. I haven't really ventured out to anything else. How about you guys?

I have been sipping the Isopure drinks. 20 oz =40 grams of protein. And having crushed ice all day. I love water and am having a hard time not gulping so the ice has been my saving grace.

Had some unjury chicken Soup yesterday. Will have some more tomorrow. Going to shoot for 60 grams of protein tomorrow. I am on thin liquids for 3 weeks so I'm sure it will get boring but that will be a small price to pay for a healthy weight and all the health rewards that go with it!

Keep up the great work and speedy recovery to you! :)

        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.
