Yes exactly! It's very difficult... Honestly that's the only thing I miss the most :( Learning to move past it. I'd rather be heathy then have my old habits if drinking while eating... No wonder I was able to eat so much before... I could drink 2 glasses of tea and not even be done with my food. Crazy!

I'm also a revision from band to sleeve. What a different experience, right?

Yes what a difference! It just feels good to be able to keep things down and not feel like I am dying! Already lost more weight with the sleeve than I did with the band. I just feel way more comfortable and healthy.

I spent 5 days in the hospital due to complications. My new surgeon and his staff are WONDERFUL!!! My band had attached itself to my liver and the port was deeply woven into my stomach muscles. I am still experiencing some minor pain in that area but overall I am loving my decision!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥

my dr told me I could drink with my food. He said it doesnt matter. But he also said you have to be careful because you only have so much room and Water will come back out if you drink too much after eating. That has happened to me not fun

Drinking can also cause the food you eat to swell and cause pain and possibly a leak in the early stages. That is what my Dr. said. I did it once and never again. OUCHIE!

Hey all...sleeved on august 22. Lost 45 so far.

I am soo worried about stretching my stomach though. Now that I feel better I can pretty much eat anything. Some days I worry cause I've eaten more than I could during recovery. I listen to my body and eat when hungry and stop when I dont. I haven't dietedb at all figuring I can't diet and have the sleeve. Should I be concerned or am I being silly. Some days I can eat more others I cant. I just had a cup of Soup with meat in it and feel guilty bit maybe I shouldnt. I just don t want this to fail since it seems to be working. So scared of stretching it out.

I went to my OBGYN and she said that I have keytones in my urine from lack of carbs. I thought I wasn't suppose to have carbs? There are low carbs on Water and Protein. <img src='http://www.bariatricpal.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> Anyone else have this come up?

Yep then I ended up with a kidney stone... I eat some carbs now like oatmeal for Breakfast I don't get a whole lot in since its very filling but it's complex carbs so its not bad. Or I'll have quinoa or Beans or lentils. I try to eat the healthy carb choices, just not a ton of it... Not that I could. But I've noticed it does help. They have strips you can test your urine with and know if there are keytones in your urine.

ReliOn is the brand they have them at any drugstore or pharmacy.

Hi all! I had my gastric sleeve done on August 26th to be exact! I'm having a really hard time getting Protein down. I take my Vitamins and stuff like I'm suppose to but, getting that protein down is not working for me. Lord knows I do not want to lose my hair but if some of you guys could give me some tips that would be awesome. :)

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
