I know several people on here have named their sleeve, but I couldn't find an official thread. I've found that naming my sleeve has helped me get through the irritation of the healing process (I am 11 days post op). My sleeve is Runt. Her full name isn't for the faint at heart and is used on bad days (it rhymes).

I felt bad yelling at my stomach, because pre surgery my stomach was a cast Iron fortress. I could eat nails and it would cheer for more. This new stomach is whimpy, whiny, and has *gasp* acid issues. That's unheard of pre surgery!

Runt and I have the typical arguments that most new relationships have. Most days I can force her to submit to our daily Water and Protein intake. Saturday was not the case. Runt and I screamed at each other all day. She only wanted ice water, and I wanted to have my Protein shake and medications. I emailed the after care nurse to mediate for Runt and me. An extra dose of prilosec made all the difference today. It's a rocky road so far for Runt and me.

So in the spirit of bring humor to those harder days, NAME YOUR SLEEVE! Dudes, it really does help.

After explaining my surgery to my 5 year old son he looked at me and said 'So you have a FrankenTummy?' So from that day on my sleeve became FrankenTummy.

I named mine Stevie (Stevie the Sleevie). The relationship gets better with time. Especially since you know your relationship is permanent.

"ShockCollar"... It's all good as long as I stay in the boundaries, but if I step outside I gen an unpleasant correction!

Hmmm I don't have an official name, bit the first things that come to mind are "cock blocker" and "hater" lol just when I get a good bite in, the "cock blocker"/"hater" comes and ruins what could have been an enjoyable meal. Like literally three bites, and the sleeve shuts $hit down lol. Never thought I'd be happy to have a "cock blocker"/"hater" in my life permanently ????

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
