any November 2017 sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had my surgery, the first few hours were rough. Nausea from the anesthesia was rough and the gas pains were no joke. I tried to walk a few minutes every hour from about 5 hours out of surgery on and it helped. My surgeon is against using gas-x so I was not allowed to use mine. I passed the barium swallow and now I need 3 consecutive hours of drinking and keeping down 4 oz of either Water, broth, crystal light or Protein Drink. So far so good


Have a great day!

Hi everyone! I am having the sleeve done on November 29th. I'm on a 3 day liquid diet until then. I'm 58 years old, 203 pounds and 5'1". I'm very excited about it, but admit I'm a little nervous. Any advise?


I'm envious....ive been on liquids since the day before thanksgiving....im about to float away

I've been scrolling this the forum for the last week, before I scheduled my surgery day. It has been very encouraging and supportive to read through all of the stages people are in. I will be here, be sure to reach out to me [emoji4]

Hi Lina!

I had my sleeve done 11/22 and have been recovering since then. I'd be happy to share some advice!

1) It's really important to consume as much liquid (and protein) as you can after surgery. Stay on top of Water and Protein Shake consumption every hour, even though you may feel like sleeping all day.

2) Follow your doctor's plan very closely. That's what matters most.

Got sleeved today!! I had the absolute best OR staff, the last thing i remember before anesthesia is one of the nurses saying you are in really great hands which really relaxed me. Im also very thankful for IV pain medicine. I've been up and walking around as much as I can tolerate. I was only allowed ice chips today that have made me feel sick lately, so I'm nervous for Protein Shakes tomorrow. Also, I don't recommend hiccups the day of surgery

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
