I can drink low cal fizzy drinks, but they do make me feel bloated. Also, they taste a bit too sweet now, so if I'm going to consume bubbles, I go straight for the Prosecco! ;-)

We all make our own choices. Check your plan.

Your surgery restriction is tight right out from surgery. It's going to be hard enough to consume your Protein goal. My dieticians’ instructions are no soda in weight loss mode.

Years out, yes, I have a carbonated beverage occasionally. I really don’t do soda as a norm and I don't miss it.

^^^This. Not often on carbonation. Doesn't make me feel real swell even at 13 months.

Yeah, I have one every now and then, when I drink alcohol, but I can't drink much because they end up hurting my belly. You're fairly fresh from surgery, if I'm remembering correctly, so I would hold off another 6+ months if I were you.

I was only told I could try them at 3 months. some do irritate me, others not so much.

I'm 8 months out and I still can't have more than a few sips of carbonation. It makes me feel like my sleeve might explode.

I do really well with sparkling waters and they provide a much needed change from plain old water!!

It's prohibited on my plan. I was warned about it on the day of my initial consultation. Because of that, prior to having surgery, I weaned myself off of caffeine and carbonated beverages.

I'm 3 months post-op and can't imagine drinking carbonated beverages. Surgeon's instructions were not to have them, so I'm not. I think it would be too fizzy and gassy and make me full and bloated.

I was told from my surgeon to Not drink any carbonated beverages and not to drink from a straw. I don’t drink any carbonated drinks and don’t drink from a straw.

I drink pop again now, I love Coke Zero but I keep it to one or two a week and I usually have to do fountain drinks because it’s less fizzy.

It’s good to get away from coke type drinks...esp since they hold zero value to all of us on this journey. It’s ultimately up to you and what your surgeon and team recommended but I’ve gotten away from all carbonated products about two years before I had surgery and now I’m 7 mos post op and still haven’t had any and I don’t plan to. I know it’s hard. Good luck to you
