Sleeved on 8/26 and lost 12 lbs at 1 wk out. Haven't lost anything since and trying to be patient. Having a hard time getting all my fluids in. Starting to hate Water and shakes. Any suggestions on some sleeve approved drinks?

Yeah shakes are starting to make me sick to my stomach. I am so over them.

I hate artificial sweeteners. I had a rough time getting my fluids in early. I broke down and drank Gatorade. It was either drink Gatorade or nothing.

I was in the same boat...I tried the Powerade Zero but it was too sweet. Ended up with Gatorade G2.

Problem is I like my ice tea sweetened and haven't really tried any sweeteners so not sure which is best

Starbucks passion tea no sweetener hit the spot for me, decafinated and no sugar. Tastes a little herby, but oh so good!

Sleeved on 8/23/13. Came home the next day without any drains! I am on full liquids and semi solids! The first week was rough however when i started back on my chewable B Complex it made a huge difference!! (hospital said to quit taking it' date=' that was a no no) . As long as i get my Protein in and my B complex then i feel good most days, although i do get tired easily. I came back to work after a week. I am good with keeping the liquids down, i have a hard time with the food because i keep trying to eat too fast. (pain & nausea) I would love to stay connected with the other August sleevers as we go through this journey!! [/quote']

I had band to sleeve revision on the 21st and it has been a long 3 weeks but now starting to feel so much better after infection, fever and baseball size knot on the biggest incision! Weight loss of 17 lbs. Walking farther everyday. Eating and drinking with no issues. Taste has changed for a few things, like sweets and coffee dosnt satisfy. Can taste salt more too. Weird.

I was sleeved 8/12. Down 16 lbs since surgery. I lost 17 lbs in the months leading up to surgery. Pre-surgery 219.8 current 203.4. I'm basically eating regular foods. Except no beef or pork' date=' no fruit, no raw veggies per doctor. So, my family and I have come up with TONS of stuffed/rolled chicken recipes. Favorites so far: bruschetta stuffed chicken, asparagus and Swiss stuffed chicken, and spaghetti squash stuffed with turkey burger, quinoa, fire roasted tomatoes and various cheeses.

Man, our grocery bill has been radically reduced! My hubby was sleeved 12/31.

It makes me laugh that a chicken breast lasts me 2-3 meals.

Ladies: I struggled this month, right before my cycle with a chocolate craving. This is about better choices, so went and got an 86% cacao chocolate bar that has 5grams of sugar in 1/2 a bar. All I needed was a corner (that bar will last MONTHS!) and the craving was gone!! I also (as usual) could not get enough food, felt like I was starving! Nut said it was ok to add some calorie content those few days, but to listen to my body and cut it back again because I didn't really need it anymore. This helped a lot. I added a mini meal in between Breakfast and lunch and another after dinner, for 2days, now I'm good again and no hunger.

I haven't lost a lot, relative to many. But for me, it's more than I would have otherwise. I have determined that I will no longer put CRAP into my body. If it doesn't serve a nutritional need it doesn't go in!

I struggle drinking Water, but went back to the Protein Fruit Drinks I used the first week, mixed in 1liter of water, and I can get 2 liters in a day plus sometimes.

I also miss chewing crunchy things most. Has anyone found any good crunchy stuff? Not as a snack but to augment a meal?

Thanks for reading my rambling, sorry!

Ramble away, it's interesting stuff. I was sleeved 8/11. I was nil by mouth for 24 hours then on to water for the next 24 hours before moving on to full liquids. I was so down as I was sooo hungry. But then, 48 hours after surgery I got my period. After I moved on to puree my hunger really settled down. But, that time of the month rolled around and the hunger was back! I have PCOS so the hunger is before, during and for a couple of days after. Im so glad to know i'm not alone in this. And its good to hear what your NUT advised. Isnt it funny how we can eat more without discomfort at 'that' time... Thankfully, with PCOS the less you weigh the milder the symptoms. So I'm hoping that the hunger will decrease in severity as time goes on. What is really bugging me though is this incessant wind! I have never tooted so much and when I eat and drink I gargle like an old drain. When will this stop..... Lol!

HEY! Another 27th-er. I was in the ICU for 4 days after surgery' date=' released yesterday. I've been drinking as much as I can. Diet Snapple, LowCal Gatorade, Water and beef broth. Jello right now is kind of iffy because it kkinda hurts after a while but it goes away. The only pain I have is from my largest incision and the area surrounding it. Other than that, i'm feeling fab. Just hope I don't get dehydrate, 2oz an hour is killing me.[/quote']

Why where you in ICU????

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
