Any March 2018 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Sleeved 3/28 and starting my first full day of Full liquids. Just had breakfast: Decaf coffee followed by Baby oatmeal, 4oz of the oatmeal and 4oz of fat free milk to make it well thinned. Added 1/2 scoop of vanilla Protein Powder for Protein and flavor. It was great to have something warm with a tiny spoon besides broth. Had some Oikos 000 greek yogurt thinned with fat free milk last night for dinner. So far everything I have tried has gone down well and getting plenty of liquids down. Today I'll have my first Protein Shake and work on getting protein intake up to where it belongs. While I resumed my prescribed meds yesterday I am holding off on my diabetes med (glipizide xl) because my blood sugar has been in the low 90's the last two days.

Sleeved 3/27 and have been doing the liquid diet....working my way up to 64oz per day. Have been doing Premier Protein shakes, sf Jello and popsicles, broth and ice cubes. Will do this for one week and then go to soft foods in the 2nd week.

Sleeved 3/26. Had gas pains for a few days. Finished Clear Liquids yesterday and incorporated Protein Shake this morning. Got a severe stomachache about 10 minutes after, is that normal?

going straight from clear fluids to shake seems a bit tough......did you do full liquids in between?

Also you have to sip very slowly at first....be careful. good luck

That’s great advice to take small sips, you will feel when the liquid hits the bottom of your NEW stomach. It’s different now, so it’s like introducing food into your new system. Take it easy, it’s helped me out. I was sleeved on 3/27/18.. We can do this!!!

The question could be any of these: How soon? how much? and how fast?

My doctor and nutritionist cautioned about taking Protein Shakes and even any other supplements before all the nausea fully subsides. The thing they mentioned is that when having any problems with any new intake that doesn't go well wait a week before trying that one again.

I sleeved 3/28 and as to Protein I had a half scoop last night mixed with thinned greek blended yogurt and again protein mixed with baby oatmeal and both went down just fine. Just had a Protein Shake made with Water that went down just fine, but only 4 oz and sipped slowly. But everyone is different.

Good luck!

That’s awesome job, keep up the great work. Your stomach will thank you later, I was sleeved 3/27/18 but I’m on liquid diet with Protein for 2 weeks.

I found that half shakes worked best for me until recently. 12 ounces was nauseating. 2 more week and I hope to leave shakes in the dust and never look back!!

Hey, I like the chocolate Protein Shakes, they remind me of YooHoo! from my youth. If you look it up on Wikipedia the recipe sounds very much the same but without some of the corn Syrup fructose.

Boy has it been rough but it’s most certainly getting easier. I was sleeved March 26th and just started feeling better yesterday. Still feel like I’ve been kicked in the gut by a horse. My doc already has me on soft pureed foods but I’m still mostly getting liquids down. Yesterday I got 86 ozs down with 75 grams of Protein. I also had a tiny bit of pudding and a fudgesicle, both delightful. I still get a pressure sensation when I drink (as soon as it hits my gut) but it passes after a few seconds. Still getting rid of the gas too. Good luck guys, remember day by day.

You are doing great, I was sleeved on 3/27/18 and I guess since it was from band to sleeve it’s been taking a little longer to catch up. But sip sip sip is the word, little by Little we will all make it. Thank you all for support and info on your daily progress.

I’m impressed that you can already get 4oz’s in at a time. I’m still on a max of 3!
I have yet to meet my protein or water goals [emoji30]

Question:

Has anyone that was previously taking Percocet 10/325 3xday for pain for other areas of the body, and now it seems that the Hycet 7.5/325 (5ML) every 4-6hours liquid that was prescribed for post surgery isn't curbing the pain? Or isnt lasting long enough.

Hi sarah. I have a, question [emoji782] I think I know what the hw and sw means. Does cw mean current weight? If so that means you've lost over 32 lbs since monday from your sw to current weight. If so wow. Thats fantastic!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
