Any February Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Feb sleever here!

I was sleeved on 2/7/18 and so far Im feeling pretty great and down 35 pounds which seems impossible. Going to buy another scale tomorrow. Haven't had any appetite for the last couple of days but I imagine that will begin to change soon.

Oh ok an thats normal i have one too i was told to keep drinking fluids it will dry up. Protein is going good so far except i only get 30g a day because i cannot stand Protein Shake anymore. My surgeon told me i need to have atleast 60g 🤢. Hows your Proteins going?


Im having a hard time with both Water n protien intake. Not many brands of protien are sitting well with my stomach. My nut told me to drink them really slowly...that it may take 4 hrs to finish one. Im sipping fluids all day but really small sips so i manage abt 35-40 oz a day. A lil frustrating. Do u feel restriction when drinking?

Sorry that many of the Protein brands are not working! What brands have you tried, have u tried any plant based products- Unjury has a plant based unflavored option! Have u experimented with adding some flavoring to your Water, I can’t do anything with aspartame so I am tolerating the True Lemon True Lemon Products! Found Lemon Ginger Teabags super soothing too- hope you find some products that work. Hydration is key in this process. Best of Luck.

Ive been flavoring my Water with herbal tea. Its just the sipping slowly thats frustrating. I tried unflavored Isopure, nectar, premier and atkins

When I’m up I set the timer on my phone at 15 min intervals and I keep the 1 oz medicine cups with my liquids. My challenge is keep the teas and broth hot so I’m constantly reheating. I going to try the warmer plate for coffee cups and candles( just got to order one)

Thanks for the Welcome! I’m still working through the extra gas ( my body is taking a bit longer to expel all that CO2). I’m walking, using the incentive spirometer and trying to get my required liquids in. Day 1 post op was tedious, I would suggest that upcoming sleepers discuss gas management with the surgeon pre-op just in case it becomes a problem. I start my Full Liquids Stage on Monday. Clears have been very tolerable I had IBS and diverticulitis in the past so I keep homemade Bone Broth on hand. Really haven’t used any store bought broths so far ( I’ll see if I want to change flavors over the next 2 days).

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
