Empty calories. High sugar content. Empty carbs. High fructose corn Syrup. The list goes on and on. The biggest thing is once post-op, a lot of people can't tolerate the carbonation. I'm lucky that I can, but I stay far away from soda because there is no health benefit to it at all.

I took a swallow of mt dew and I could feel it in my pouch. It was painful and burned. I won't try it again.

I am ok with carbonation but choose not to drink anything carbonated...it isn't good for bone density and there is really no benefit to it.

My surgeon told me never again. I cried so much since I was a heavy coca-cola addict since age 5! Had several a day. I got sleeved 9/27 and I haven't looked back! Don't drink it! I won't even contemplate a sip I'm afraid I'll go back to it. So I had to divorce it!

The carbonation will cause your sleeve/pouch to expand possibly stretching it out some. It will take more volume to feel full and you'll get less benefit from your weight loss surgery.

This is something we all could easily do without - and if you have some sort of extreme dependence or emotional attachment then your mental health issues should be dealt with as well.

I promise after your first sip when you wanna die you'll forget about your obsession lol. I knew it would hurt but had to touch the flame and try but then I was good. Eventually I could drink it in moderation but it's not a go to drink anymore.

I have asked my doctor the same question, im a redbull addict and going a day without it gives me endless Migraines. He said its an easy way to gain all your weight back, plus you might not be able to tolerate it early on.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
