Any March 2018 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I’m 6 days post op and on liquid diet. I’m scheduled to go to doctor today and get the push to the next stage which includes yogurt , sugar free pudding, farina. I’m not hungry but I sure miss texture lol. My doctor allows crystal light but only listed lemonade and iced tea. I wonder if I could have other flavors. It’s on my list to ask today.

Last night was first night I slept on my stomach and oh what a great night of sleep it finally was!






This mirrors my recovery. I am post surgery day 7 today, but was cleared for full liquids yesterday. I believe I slept mostly on my stomach last night and sleeping is become a wonderful thing! I miss texture as well. My program has us reintroducing foods in stages, slowly. It won't be until next week when I can have pureed foods. Slow and steady wins the race.

I believe my doc keeps us on this next “stage 2” for 2 weeks then I go to the puréed.

Baby steps gets us there too!

Yes I was sleeved march 9 with dr Szomstein at Cleveland clinic in Weston FL. It’s about a 25 minute drive. The Bariatric team is awesome. I was treated so well during my hospital stay. I highly recommend them. They definitely live up to their stellar reputation. Over all I feel fine . Just a little sore where they removed the stomach. On surgery day they gave me Tylenol and nausea meds prior to surgery. That really helped bc when i woke up. I didn’t have any pain just tightness in my abdomen. I didn’t have any gas pain either. I have not had any issues swallowing or vomiting. Extremely smooth recovery.

Thank you for sharing this.......it helps to hear first hand how it went and makes us pre-surgery people less apprehensive.

For those of you coughing or sneezing. The same applies to this surgery as a hysterectomy... put a pillow over your stomach. Idk why it helps but it does!
