Why is it that we can no longer for the rest of our lives drink carbonated drinks or carbonated water like Perrier?



Recommended Posts

I had no carbonation or caffeine until I was 3 Months post op. I now drink 2 cups of coffee every morning and probably one or two flavored carbonated waters a day. Still losing weight and have had no side effects.

@apositivelife4me I am the prime example of why not to drink carbonated beverages! That along with other factors (had my son and switched on different medication) contributed to my stretching out my sleeve and now here I am getting a revision in 2 weeks. I would not recommend it for the better part of a couple of years post op if ever. It's not worth it!

Well sodas and stuff the answer is kind of obvious. But i drink sparkling flavored water all the time. Like several times per day (and regular Water too), i’ve had no issues with it.

I wouldn’t suggest it for other people though because everyone is different and some people experience pain with carbonation.

Need to highlight a point here . . .

BELCHING. It isn't cool if you don't live in a frat house. I tried straws a little, resulted in belching. Tried a little carbonation, resulted in belching.

Will have to pass for now on both. Do miss my occasional diet coke, but it isn't worth the resulting loud noises.

My silly sleeve is loud enough on it's own

I was addicted to diet drinks for many years, as I got fatter and fatter. Last February I had a Saddle Pulmanary Embolism and almost died. While in the hospital my respirologist would not let me have any pop - so cold turkey it was. I never started drinking it again, thanks goodness.

Then after starting the Bariatric program in August of last year my nutritionist started pulling me off everything else in preparation for surgery. First iced tea (it was sweetened), then carbonated Water, then caffiene. I'm now 6 weeks out, and have had regular coffee a couple of times. No problems with it but I find I don't need it. I imagine I will go back to the occasional diet drink after 6 months or so, but I don't need it like I used to.

After the two month post op stage, I started drinking carbonated beverages. No problems whatsoever. No gas, no pouch stretching, no tummy aches.

I am 2 yrs out and I firmly believe the all the diet soda I was drinking stretched my sleeve. I will find out by how much the 27th when I go for my floroscopy for my revision to RNY. Lesson learned.

I am not talking about drinking soda pop. I am just wondering about drinks like sugar free sparkling Water like Perrier. I used to really enjoy sparkling water.

Carbonation is supposed to have enough power to build up the pressure that's necessary to stretch a pouch permanently?

What happened to burping exactly? You have a carbonated drink or a beer - you burp. That's it.

To each his own. Your milage may vary but there must be a reason that its not recommended. I'm not taking that chance.....Bob

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss

      I am struggling right now.  I am working out 4.5 hours a week and it hasn't felt good for the last 2 weeks.  Feels more like a chore and I don't know why.  I am still going but it has been a fight. Corresponding to this I have also been wanting to eat - eat everything we aren't supposed to eat. I have held back for the most part but I have splurged - full sugar vanilla pudding cup, I had a chocolate chip cookie and tortillas. I even stopped tracking my food. I am back on track, but I feel really down right now. I am already seeing someone, and it helps, but wow I am not feeling like myself. I am hoping this is a passing phase. I don't want these feelings to continue. Sigh...
