If you breathe before you swallow a sip from your straw to break the seal so to say then you should have no issue. Just dont sip like your crazy lol

I had an old bottle of coke from before surgery sitting on my counter calling my name. I took the top off and let it go flat and fixed myself some in a glass. I took one sip and dumped it out. As soon as I swallowed it I started sweating and my stomach immediately cramped.

I loooooved coke before surgery. Now after that sip..... I don't want a thing to do with it. Ill stick to my tea and Water.< /p>

Like others said, it's all about the carbonation. The nurse gave me an actual visual of soda. She shook a bottle really hard and put a balloon on the end. The balloon actually filled up from all the carbonation coming out of the soda. She said to imagine that in your stomach. If I did have to drink soda it needed to be flat. Not that soda is great flat but if it's the taste you crave maybe have a flat one?

I was told they remove the part of your stomach that stretches and this myth has been debunked

I was told it stretches a little over time though.

I will be 8 mos post-op on the 30th, and around the 7mo mark I did take a sip here and there without problems. Last night I had a barcardi and coke with no problem. I also have had a beer with out any problems as well. This is not a everyday occurrence :)

If you are a soda addict like me dont sip or drink one. It is empty calories and the gas will make your stomach upset. I tried coke and dr pepper. The coke was not bad but the dr pepper was horrible it felt like my stomach was going to pop. So please if you do decide to do this take caution because that dr pepper scared the hell out of me. I decided not to even think about sodas anymore.

Same thing happened to me. On to of it all... It tasted horrible. :( so long dr. pepper.... My love.

Now I know the answer to my following question' date=' however I just want some personal experience answers LOL! I am dyyyinngggggg to just have ONE sip of a pop! I know I shouldn't and they say not to. But one sip? I can control myself - I just don't want to have pain. Comments???

Also- straws.... I know they said not to. But for how long? Not that I'm totally concerned not using a straw; makes no difference to me really. Just curious. :D[/quote']

I had surgery on 5/30. I use straws with no problem. My nutritionist said its up to the individual. As far as soda (pop)..I read a post that recommended getting a coke icee. I tried one and it fixed my craving! Good luck

I love fountain coke!!! But it's definitely a trigger for me. I did try a sip, but had TERRIBLE heartburn after, so that cured me! Never again! Also my nutritionist said that it stretches your stomach, so I definitely don't want that!! I'd say forget it! Don't even tempt yourself!

      I have been waiting over a month to get into the nutritionist. I have an appointment, but I would love any advice on what to do diet-wise to lose weight before surgery. Like most of you, I have also struggled with my weight and have successfully yo-yo dieted myself into the above 300lb range. I feel like eating in a calorie deficit at my weight, it should come off, but it hasn't been and I have been tracking my food too.  Thank you

        Hi, Mindy G, I am new here too, my surgery will not be until July or August, but I could use a friend. I see yours is coming up soon. Are you doing the liquid diet before surgery? How's it going?

        I would take any advice on what to do for weight loss before the surgery, I have my first nutritionist appointment on Feb 9th (the soonest I could get in). But I was 12 lbs heavier than what my doctor submitted as my weight to my insurance, so I have to lose that plus at least 10 more pounds and I am struggling.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good
