I was sleeved just yesterday! Got home a couple of hours ago. Trying to figure out my new stomach. Everything I intake hurts so far. No matter how little or slow I go.

I don't have one either...same here just nothing after midnight the night before.

If u dont mind, how much do you weigh? I think the pre-op diet has something to do with your weight maybe

Now we both have moved to 17th April.

Good to know its not just me then. I was spitting up right after the procedure but have not vomited since. The pain makes me not want to drink anything even though I'm super thirsty

Jrk I'm sorry but you still have me in your corner. They postponed me back to early-mid March again.I have to have a upper GI with contrast done. The EGD showed I have a small gastric ulcer and this will pinpoint its exact location. Probably in the part he won't make my pouch out of but this way he's certain. Originally he was going to fax my gastroenterologist to arrange it at my local hospital but now they are going fax the Diagnostic Imagining dept. here directly. I didn't want to have to go to Columbus to,have it done, we have 4+ inches of snow on the ground with a strong chance of more tonight and Colombus is 50 miles (80 km) from where I live. After that things should resume going forward. I want this surgery and most people I'm not overly patient.

Hi I has nothing to do with weight. My Dr. does not require it from anyone. I asked right from day one...thought it was odd. Guess as long as you don't gain any weight along the 6 months he is good with that.

The pre op diet, which varies from surgeon to surgeon, is to shrink your liver. Overweight people have overweight (fatty) livers. The liver partially covers the stomach. If you go super low carb for a few weeks your body will feed off the fat and shrink your liver. A smaller liver makes it easier and safer surgery.That’s what I was told why they require a preop diet

I was sleeved on 2/6/2018. I am 4 days post op and feeling better! Would love a sleeve partner to share stories with! HW: 245 SW: 230 CW: 229. I’m just trying to sip and get my liquids in!




I was sleeved Monday and I'm trying to get my sips in and not go over I'm having a hard time but it's coming along.
