Take Dry Mouth Spray to the hospital! You will be miserable if you don't! They sell Biotene and a CVS store brand ...both are fine

I had my sleeve done on February 17. Feeling great, but tired.

I started the process with the initial meeting with the surgeon on Jan. 4th. Started pre-op diet (limited portions, mostly protein) that day at 457 pounds (yikes!). Down about 60 by the surgery. Now, almost two weeks post op, down to 375, though I seem to be stalled for a couple of days now. Hopeful!!!

Wow, you’re doing great! Don’t focus too much on a stall since you’ve lost so well in a short period, your body needs some adjusting time.

Saw your other post and it sounds like you are doing great! Fairlife has been my go-to also. I tried doing a Premier Protein shake and it was sooo hard to get down. My tiny tummy seems to like the Fairlife though.

Gastric sleeve scheduled a week from now, on the 25th. I'm in Sweden but originally from Canada so joining here because it's an English speaking forum. Good luck to everyone who is getting their operation done or who has just recently done it this month!

How are you doing?

Had my surgery on the 23rd. Everything went well. First 24 hours were a bit rough, but now I'm doing okay. Walking 2-3km everyday since Thursday, getting most of my Water and Protein in. Still sleeping in a recliner, but hoping in the next couple days to move back to my bed. On strained thin liquid diet for 10 days, then smoothie consistency liquids for 10 more days, then purees for the next 10. Hate every Protein Shake I've tried, so I've been putting unflavored protein in my Soups, broths, yogurts and that's been okay. Think I really hit ketosis today because my breath is awful and the taste in my mouth is so, so bad even right after brushing my teeth. Oh, weighed myself this morning for the first time and I'm down 13.8lbs from surgery--YAY!

I had my sleeve in 2/28. I did well for the first month with no complications. This past Sunday I started having horrible pains in my abdomen to where I couldn’t stand up straight, very slow when walking, unable to turn on my side to sleep, and just unable to do normal things as usual. When I called into my doctor they said it could be muscle spasms. Has anyone else had this happen?
