Had VSG on 5/10/18. No problem drinking broth a whole Protein Shake (all over like 90 minuets of course). Popsicles are great. Still haven’t tried Jello. But Water? No matter how small of sips I take, it feels like it gets stuck. Did anyone else have issues with the water part right after surgery?

Try drinking Water at different temperatures maybe? I've been lucky to have no issues with water, but I've seen others say they can only have it icy cold, or only luke warm etc.

Otherwise, maybe try flavouring it lightly with something that doesn't add calories ?

I am almost 4 months post op and still can't have straight water. I was told it is the texture of water that doesn't agree with bariatric patient's pouches after surgery. I mix water with caffeine free tea, crystal light, or calorie free water additive. Like the other poster said, you can try different temperatures of water. But if all else fails, I'd mix something with it.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
