With the lap band, if my sips got a bit too big, I would feel restriction. 2 weeks out since surgery and I can take large gulps ( not intentionally) and no restriction.

Sleevers? Do you feel restriction when drinking mindlessly?

Actually, you might be luckier... The restriction acts as a reminder for us to sip/ take small bites/ etc... it is a great tool

No . I accidentally occasionally gulp (protien shake/soup) and feel no restriction @ 10 days post op. VGS

So sad I can’t gulp anymore. It’s why I have trouble getting my fluids in. I was always a gulper & a glogger, downing big glasses of Water in one go. Now If I take a single mouthful or anymore than two sips at once I feel the tightness. Waaah

I am on day 6 post op and I can almost gulp now....let’s say a good swallow. Where I could barely sip before. Pretty excited about that because I was worried about getting fluids in.

I worry about being able to stay hydrated and being limited to drinking tiny amounts constantly. I haven' t had my surgery yet and it's one of the reasons I am hesitant to do so. I tend to get dehydrated now because I don't drink enough and so when I realize I am I then drink a couple huge glasses of Water. Knowing I won't be able to do that any more is a concern. (and the reason I don't drink enough is I have a bad hip and it hurts to walk and so I refrain from walking any more than I have to and all those trips to the kitchen and the bathroom at work means a lot of extra walking ;o I have been told however they won't fix my hip until I lose a lot of weight.

Very funny Sid! I am sure my office mates would love that. I actually have dysplasia (a structural abnormality in my hip) which has caused significant tearing in the labrum in my right hip, unfortunately the only thing that is going to make it not hurt for me to walk is a hip replacement and my Dr told me insurance companies don't wan to be responsible for costs associated with surgical complications of patients who are obese related to elective procedures. So if I wan't my hip fixed I need to lose a significant amount of weight. Losing excess weight will make me healthier and change my life, but without a replacement hip I am going to be in pain with every step regardless.

I got hip replacement at 300 lbs.

Perhaps I need a second opinion then Billy. I assumed the orthopedic I saw knew what he was talking about after then leaving his office and finding many stories online about obese patients being denied hip and knew surgeries. I thought it was odd my insurance co approved a bariatric surgery in less than 24 hours if obese patients were too high risk for elective surgery.

      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!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        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.
