Anyone else getting sleeved in August?



Recommended Posts

My dr said protien shakes and low carb bars all day starting 2 weeks before. Started last Monday I stead of last Wednesday. Lost 13 lbs already. I drink the Advantedge shakes and Atkins bars.

Nothing exciting but I want to follow all instructions so I have a positive outcome! Paying cash for all of this........ ~~~~ Teri

Thanks for doing that list......a lot of us on 8/6, wow!

I started the pre-op liquid diet on Saturday...it's not bad so far.....HOWEVER, this is self imposed rather than mandatory, so maybe because I know I can eat if I want to, that I don't mind it.....come tomorrow when it officially begins, I may not be such a happy camper LOL

Have a great day everyone!!!!!

Hi I just remembered that I have not introduced myself here yet,

I am 20 years old, from country Victoria, Australia. Was banded last year and have had several blockages and have barley lost any weight, my surgeon has recommended converting to a sleeve which I am hoping to have done in August, I am seeing him on Wednesday and should have more information

hey there, just started my pre-op this morning. I am surprised to see how many of you seem to have a lot of «freedom» when it comes to what to eat/drink. I have to stick to 4 opti-fast Protein Shake a day (chocolate or vanilla)...pretty gross, and only 3 cups of veggies (natural) a day. I just drank my second Protein shake and could not finish it...it is so thick and yucky. I wonder if it is bad that i do not finish the shakes...At least, I feel terrific, so far so good :)...The thing i miss the most already: a piece of gum. It usually gives me a little boost, but i have no intention to cheat. I actually don't understand how come so many people on here say they cheated...Personnally,my pre-op diet is for only two weeks and also it's self-paid and though my parents are the one paying, i have no intention to put their money to waist...

If some of you have started a while ago, i would love to know what part of the pre-op you found most difficult. Usually, are the first couple days the most difficult, or is it towards the end, or else ?

It's great to know when everyone is getting their surgery, but it would be nice to ask our questions, share our experience/feelings on this page.

Thanks and good luck to all !

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
