I am getting things together for my trip to Mexico. I will be staying a few days in San Diego before heading home.

I've packed some peppermint tea bags in case of nausea, but wondering if I can use my pink packets of sweet and low or saccharin?

I've read about a lot of artificial sweetners after surgery but can't find anything on Saccharin?

Anyone still use this??

If you like it, use it. Previous studies linking it to cancer have been debunked.

Thank you! I just wasn't sure how my new stomach would react. I've used it for years, so it wouldn't be new..

Everything I've read says it's ok. Couldn't hurt to ask your nutritionist?

Have you tried Splenda? I can't imagine liking saccharin! I know some people must or they wouldn't still sell so much of it...but that's a mystery to my taste buds:)

Yes, I've tried splenda and don't like it. I guess its what you're used to, I've used sweet and low in my coffee and saccharin in my tea for 40+ years!! I was sure hoping I could continue with it, I definitely don't like unsweetend coffee or tea!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
