Ill be 3 yrs out in October and i drink soda and seltzer occasionally. It's not the most comfortable feeling so i don't crave it like before. Thought I'd try to get into kombucha.... it had more bubbles than soda. I go for tea, crystal light or Water. Soda isn't worth it

They told me for both the sleeve and lap band no carbonated drinks at all, they stretch your pouch.

There are many differing opinions on this. Some surgeons subscribe to this theory. Others do not.

I have it occasionally now that I'm four years out, but it does bother my stomach. I have to drink it VERY SLOWLY. Sometimes I let it sit open for awhile to flatten a bit.

It seems some people drink it, some don't - but those who do usually wait quite awhile after surgery before attempting it.

Nice topic considering I’ve got a wedding to attend July 4th and there will be a champagne toast.

I’m thinking as long as I sip slowly I could probably get away with sipping on 1-2 ounces.
Besides, if my sleeve gets full on that, I will for sure not be tempted by wedding cake

Some people tolerate carbonation. I don't know if it causes stretching or not but it certainly causes me discomfort. Whatever you try - seltzer Water or a little wedding champagne toast - make sure you are sipping it slowly and find out how you personally tolerate it.

I can take a sip or two, but it definitely feels different post-op and I couldn't drink a whole diet soda now and don't crave or want carbonated drinks anymore.

Earlier on, I could only drink a few sips of sparkling Water at at time. It made me burp like crazy and I swear I could feel it travel through my stomach and intestines.

Now (almost 8 months post op) I can drink sparkling water just fine, and in pre-op quantities. I suspect I do have issues drinking carbonated alcoholic drinks, but that is probably more because of the sugar content than the carbonation (a lesson I learned the hard way :( )

I have moments of wanting to drink a pop and have to tell myself not to do it. If i ear something that makes me have the craving I'll drink gatorade zero for a taste to make it go away. The doctors told me not to drink anything carbonated because it can cause it to stretch back out and plus you will have discomfort.

There are moments when I'd want a flat Pepsi. But it's super sugary and I'd get dumping and that reminds me it isn't worth it. Good luck and keep strong!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
