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!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
