Sorry, they should be visible in my signature right under each post. Maybe you can't see the link unless you're on a tablet or computer.

The weight loss has been good. That, eating and maintaining are part of the beauty of the DS.

I had RNY gastric bypass surgery whereas you had gastric sleeve. I take a lot of Vitamins and will do so for the rest of my life. But only one of my Vitamins was a chewable. I was also told do not use the gummy vitamins. So you may want to check with your nutritionist before you make that change.

After surgery, I lost the ability to swallow anything medium to large, so most of my vitamins either had to be split or crushed in order to swallow them. After about 2 months this problem went away and I regained my ability to swallow.

From my perspective all Protein shakes taste terrible. But after surgery I had to take them because the Protein that I consumed from food was so minuscule that my body would be damaged if I didn't. Your protein daily requirement is met by a combination of the protein obtained from protein supplements combined with the protein from meals. As my meal volume increased (over the next 1 1/2 years), I was able to decrease my reliance on Protein Shakes because I concentrated on consuming high protein meals. I went from 3 protein shakes a day, down to 2, then down to 1 and finally none. The important point here is you don't have to like your protein supplement; you just have to tolerate it. I used Muscle Milk Light (Vanilla Creme) blended with Water and added a half a banana to give it better flavor.

Hi Family, I am 9 days post-op SIPS procedure. I've lost 14 pounds and I've actually grown to love my protein shakes! I use EAS vanilla and it tastes really good mixed with Water. Good luck on your procedure and you will not be sorry!

It's a modified form of the DS. Dr. Roslin of Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC is one who does it.

I was told only chewables for the first 3 months. Thank goodness. I had the Bariatric Advantage ones and they were so gross. I stay away from the gummies...they have sugar and some have up to 50 calories. No thanks!

I just got the s.f. gummies I'm going to try them out. My surgeon says chewable for life because of how short the intestine is now there's a chance the Vitamin won't dissolve enough to absorb.

I had sleeve so it could definitely be different for different types of surgeries. I didn't even think about that. I'm sorry. I hated those chewables. Hopefully you can find a good one.

I was also told no gummies, but Flintstones were OK. I had no issues and great BW.

Different rules from different doctors.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
