November sleevers here



Recommended Posts

Yup you are a November sleever LOL What a difference around the world with the "diet" and even all over the USA. I will be on liquids ONLY for 3.5 weeks. Then I will be on puree foods for 3 weeks, then soft foods for 3-4 weeks and then start small meals. So your puree potatoe and cottage cheese that you ate after a week, I cannot have for 3.5 weeks. Though I will like the full liquid diet so much better than this clear liquid diet. At least full liquid has Protein Drinks which fill you up. Course I have not been sleeved yet. Two days. Thanks for sharing your story. I think all of us "pending" are curious and even nervous about what to expect. Everyone's experience is so different. Continued good luck to you!!!

Question...for those that have had the surgery already and those that are close. Does your surgeon put a Scopolamine patch behind your ear before surgery? My dr does. I've used these before for air and sea sickness. I wonder if he does it because of the nausea?

Yes. My doctor put one on while they were prepping me for surgery and I was allowed to remove it after 48 hours with strict disposal and hand wash instructions.

Well.... Not right away. I threw up twice in the recovery room. But, I had no nausea after that.

I know right! But at least there was no nausea after I left the recovery room.

Sleeved on Nov. 1.

Recovery room was rough and I threw up a couple times. After that I was wheeled to a room and slept for several more hours. All total I slept 12 hours post op. People kept talking to me but I was so out of it. I don't remember my husband kissing me and going home for the night.

I finally woke up at 9pm and drank some chicken broth and walked 2 miles in laps around my ward. Sipped Water. Then I konked back out.

I was up every 45 minutes going pee all night long.

Woke up the next day (today) and felt great. Walked over 4 miles throughout the day waiting for hubby to pick me up at 5p. The staff was calling me marathoner. I inspired other patients to get up and walk with me.

I had a small cup of yogurt and some tomatoes Soup and a premier chocolate shake throughout the day.

Good luck to all three other November sleevers.

Wow . That’s amazing . Glad you seem to be doing so well . I hope to feel this way after . My surgery is 11/10 - 4 more days . Did they give you that Protein Shake at the hospital or did you pack your preference?

They provided me the meals that I was allowed. I did have to add a packet of Splenda to that yogurt because it was plain and gross and I poured the shake over ice to thin it a little. For lunch I got a bowl of Tomato Soup. [emoji106]
