Hello everyone! I was sleeved yesterday march 20 and so far so good! No problems thus far besides a serious case of cotton mouth! Waiting for swallow test now. I don't post much here but I wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the wonderful insight. So excited to be on the losers bench now!

I am 1 week post sleeve and remember I could barely talk from the dryness. They told me it was a side effect of the scopolamine patch they put behind my ear to help with nausea post op. If they gave you one that could be the cause. It was worth it though. Vomiting after this would have been torture. I know every Doctors program is different but how long will you be in the hospital? I was only in over night and started on liquids and walking within an hour of returning to my room post recovery. At first it sounded crazy but I felt great and still do. Hungry as hell! They say I'm not drinking enough and they are probably right. Don't want to end up in the er for dehydration. Good luck and God bless

poncagal- I had a scopalmine patch, phenergen cream, zofran and phenergen IV and still threw up. My and anesthesia don't mix apparently. I didn't know it was possible for a human to throw up that much with an empty stomach. It was terrible BUT once the nausea finally passed its been worth it. :)

Hey guys...I am one week post op and wanted to share an app that helps you eat slower which = less pain :-D

It's called "Eat Slower". You set it on whatever interval you want. I have mine set on 2 minutes and it notifies me every time i can take a bite. This helps me realize I'm full faster and to avoid the "I took one too many bites" syndrome!

Do you consider "drinkables" meals? Or just food you chew?

Sleeved 3/11. GETTING drains out today. I think I will feel 'closer' to normal afterwards. Down 9 lbs. Still on clear lquids-hope that will change today too. Had a leak during surgery--they caught it and "fixed it there." SO things are looking up!!

Ur not alone...remember that you could be losing inches...dont fret! And only weigh 1x a week or you'll drive urself bonkers! Hang in there! I decided to contribute my slow loss to that time of the month. I too am 1 week post op. I'm still swollen too esp the large incision where the removed my band port. I am praying to God it doesnt stay that puffed out! 2 incisions in same spot=big scar tissue buldge. Baaaah

So far loving this new life and I hope it can only get better. At my pre op on 13th feb I was 143 kg I'm now only 131 kg.

My nut said mashed potatoes, over cooked veggies (not fresh, only canned or frozen) smashed with a fork, oatmeal or cream of wheat, mac and cheese, cottage cheese, canned tuna or chicken mixed sparingly with mayo or pesto, cottage cheese, ricotta, banana, etc. All of it cooked well and smushed first.

Hi All,

I am feeling so sluggish this morning. Talked to my NUT and she says I am not getting enough carbs. I am still losing, but dang I hate this feeling of wanting to sleep when I get to work. Also, my food substance is getting heavier, YAY. The pureed is just not doing it right now. So lunch today is canned chicken with a tad of low fat mayo and mashed spuds. Quarter of a cup each. LOL Seems so strange to be satisfied with such a small amount. But I am loving the results. I was sleeved on the 7th so have a ways to go to get where I want to be. I am going to get more active starting this weekend too. During the week I just can't seem to get going, but come Saturday I am raring to hit the road running. LOL

Hope everyone is doing well this week.

Hey earlier March sleevers - do you find that you still take Gas-X fairly often? When I don't take it, I have a lingering dull stomach ache, even when not eating. Taking it definitely helps. I think it may also be some general irregularity from all the Protein / not eating any roughage.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
