Recommended Posts

I know there was a bunch of us that were sleeved early last week.

1. How do you feel? Any issues?

2. How is your water/protein intake?

3. Have you had your first follow-up appt? How did it go? If not, when is your appt?

4. What stage food are you on (full liquids, purees, etc.)?

5. Have you hit buyer's remorse yet or still glad you did it?

6. Lastly - how much have you lost since the surgery?

1. How do you feel? Any issues?

No issues, I feel great!

2. How is your water/protein intake?

Water intake is fine, Protein is an issue. I haven found a powder that I can really tolerate. Headed to Walmart this morning to try out some ready-to-drink Protein.

3. Have you had your first follow-up appt? How did it go? If not, when is your appt?

I had a follow-up with my pcp yesterday and it went great. Have not had a follow-up with the surgeon yet.

4. What stage food are you on (full liquids, purees, etc.)?

Full liquid right now (so sick of soup!!) i switch to purées on Sunday, as per the calendar for my plan.

5. Have you hit buyer's remorse yet or still glad you did it?

50/50. I miss being able to eat, although I know this is temporary. I keep wondering if I should have tried harder to lose the weight myself. On the other hand, I'm excited about what's ahead for me now that I have this tool at my disposal for weight loss.

6. Lastly - how much have you lost since the surgery?

I am only getting on the scale on Sundays. Last checked, it was just under 10lbs since date of surgery.

I was sleeved Feb. 9th. I am experiencing some pain but it is managed with pain meds. I struggle with Water and Protein intake however; I am pushing through each day. I am currently eating pureed foods and Soups about 4-6 Tablespoons every 4-6 hours. I have no regrets however I do miss chewing food. Since surgery, I have lost 9 lbs. Unfortunately, I have a severe case of coated tongue and I do not know why even after twice daily dental hygiene sessions. Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

Diane63 -- I believe this is a side effect of ketosis.

Post op visit today. Down 9.5. On to purees! I am doing surprisingly great considering that I thought life sucked just a week ago. I am getting in all liquids and Proteins. I'm able to do about 45 min cardio per day.

Had surgery Feb 9th.

1. I'm feeling fantastic! No pain! Haven't taken any pain meds since the hospital. Only issue I had was the bariatric Vitamins caused me to break out in red spots, but they're gone now.

2. I get in 46g of Protein and Prob about 30oz of Water, but if you include broths etc Prob about 50oz.

3. Had my first preop diet yesterday and it went awesome! I start puréed stage on Monday! Incisions look good and he's happy with my weight loss!

4. I'll be moving to puréed on Monday!

5. No buyers remorse! Love my sleeve!

6. Down 25.7 since the preop diet.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
