I am excited - I ordered a new Water bottle - it’s called a Cirkul bottle and it comes with these cartridges of flavoring. The Water doesn’t do anything unless it goes through the cartridge. I just tried the fruit punch (zero calorie or sugar or anything) and it’s amazing. It’s delicious. It also helps that it’s a sport bottle top so I can sip easier and not take big gulps. Definitely my new favorite tool for this surgery.

My wife ordered on of those, I tried it before my surgery and really liked it. Have you had any issues with it after surgery? They told me to avoid straws, and I didn't know if the sports bottle top was close enough to a straw to cause issues, so I've been avoiding it.

Gypsyvangirl, I take Tramadol for back problems and it really doesn’t do much. I’m hoping the more weight I lose, the better my back will feel.

I’m 10 days out and just had a long outing to the movies and to pick up a few groceries and I’m exhausted. (I was already exhausted after my shower). I am excited - I ordered a new Water bottle - it’s called a Cirkul bottle and it comes with these cartridges of flavoring. The Water doesn’t do anything unless it goes through the cartridge.

Hi Spatulachick, I checked out the Cirkul bottle after seeing your post. I couldn’t find clear info though, do the cartridges last for 4 bottles worth? If so, do you have drink one flavor all the way thru 4 bottles or can you switch back and forth between flavors and reuse older ones til they run out? Thanks :)

I’m using the same flavor for 4 bottles. I can switch it out if I want and just go back and forth but I have an issue with leaving things half done 😂.

Also, I still sip from it. I just try to get a little out at a time and it doesn’t seem to be an issue.

I had my surgery June 20th. I feel absolutely amazing. The only thing I suffered terribly from was back spasm for the first 2 days. The doctor thinks it was from being on the stiff operating table. Hopefully, they didn't drop me. LOL. I'm down about 11 lbs so far. I'm honestly sick of Jello though. I love my broth and Water and ice pops though.

Hey fellow sleevers. So I had my surgery June 6th and had my staples taken out June 20th. My largest incision has re opened and I’m wondering if this is something I need to go back in for. I have tried steri stripping it back together and because of where it is it won’t stay on at all. Have any of you guys had your wounds re open?? I’ll attach a photo. I’m mostly worried about infection more than anything.

You absolutely need to go back for that. The incision is not gonna heal by itself with the yellow stuff.

As long as there is no green, there is no infection. But you still need specific care.

I was sleeved on June 5. I am attaching my worst incision that also reopen. It's less than an inch long. The clinic wants to see me every two days and they said it should take another 2-3 weeks before it heals. Just to give you an idea.

Thank you so much! I am going to get in contact with them for sure. It started lightly bleeding and that’s when I started to kind of freak out.

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
