Can a special forum for Millennials be created so they don't get their feelings hurt here?

DS surgery 12/14/2016

With all the other sub forums here, it should not be hard. It could be called Gastric Sleeve for Millennials who need a Safe Space. :P

...with coloring books and puppies. There are some wonderful, smart and fun millennials out there. And then there are those people. Those people need either Spartan Man Camp or Big Girl Panties Seminar.

Okay... I'll be honest.. not really something I'm proud off but you know... I'm sure most of us been there

My two weeks will be Thurday and on Christmas night I snuck a tiny chicken wing that was part of a tiny oven stuffer lol... I wanted to test the waters and see what the pain might be like... you know to maybe help further deter me even touching solids until it was time for me to

So anyway... I made sure to take tiny tiny bites and to eat very slow let alone the fact that I had to chew for 3 and a half years and for the most part... it went down easy for the most part... stomach was a but hesitant but I had no issues... the amazing thing was that I was full! I took a generic GasX pill after for precaution and everything passed like it should

I planned to fully admit this to my team for my post op surgery appointment tomorrow.. I'm sure they gonna cuss me out

Everyone makes mistakes, but be careful you are half way there to eating solid foods again. Don't risk back tracking :)

Hey now, don't curse us all just because there's a few undesirable specimens amongst us!

I'm half Gen X, half millennial. The last generation to both play outside in the woods building forts, climbing trees, skinning knees on our BMXs but to also grow up with an NES and SNES in the house. We had the internet in 1994, but there was only like 200 websites on it (199 of which weren't suitable for the well under-18 Hammer_Down).

We learned penmanship as well as typing in school, and I graduated from university without owning a laptop (surely a dying breed when I was 22 in 2006).

My point: I know there's a lot of petty jackasses, but pretty pretty pretty please don't make me sit with them at lunch just because we're closer in age.

Haha yes girlie thank you it's just a shame that when someone wants genuine help because they are not sure what to do they get put down and shamed instead. We all got these surgeries for different reasons and I found majority of these people's before and after pics..... they damn well know they shouldn't be talking sh*t. At all. Be humble and be kind to others because you never know who you're dealing with. People think it's ok to say things to others because they are behind a computer, cause they know they wouldn't in person. So if I have to be the one to humble them BEST BELIEVE I WILL LOL !

Are you always so itchy or just to strangers on the internet who are taking the time to try to help you?

Do you always tolerate disrespect or just from strangers on the internet who ARE NOT being helpful, just rude? Oh ok.

Don't start seriously

I'm about 2 weeks post opp and I'm literally ready to eat. Like I can't take it anymore. Has anyone tried mashed potatoes or very soft mac & cheese in their early stages of being sleeved? I'm about to ask my surgeon what I can eat. Even if it's hummus I'll be pleased. I know it's mind over matter but I'm sick of chicken noodle Soup and applesauce. How did you guys cope with the cravings?

Hang in there... It does get better. If you didn't get a sample eating plan, let me know and I can share mine. There are other options for getting thru this stage. I purchased a lot from Bariatric Choice through Amazon & them directly. They have pre & post surgery approved foods with 15+ grams of Protein.

1 in 4 sleeve patients fail because they push thru the diet too soon. It does get better, but you have to think of it as food being a necessity to live, not fill voids. I don't want to hear that you're one of those failures by advancing your diet too soon. Call up surgeon's office to see if he has tips or a support group to help you get through this time.

By the way, hold off on Mac & Cheese... There are healthier options to get Protein & flavor in.

Original weight 291. Sleeved 11/18. Current weight 248. Goal 175.

Hang in there.

Favoredlife - yes please let me know about one of your sample plans or two that would be highly appreciated !

Also I did not even end up having a bite of the mashed potatoes or Mac & cheese not sure why but the smell of it actually made me feel a little sick when I was going to try it

Buy the little Water flavor packs... that is the only way I can drink Water without feeling the urge to vomit every time. I'm 3 weeks and like 3 days out so I buy crystal light water flavor packs and I slice up a lemon in my 30 oz container and I definitely on it for hours.... it tastes great and it's refreshing. Try it n let me know.
