Any March 2021 Sleeve Patients?

yeah - there is no other reason. Every patient in the practice get the "no caffeine" two weeks pre-op and 4 weeks post op. Frustrating.

Think of it as a positive. Caffeine can be hard on an inflamed and healing stomach. Best to get the withdrawals over during pre-op rather than immediate post-op while dealing with possible gas, pain, acid reflux and whatever else post op. Once healed and all going well it can be introduced.

March 17th for me. I’ve already been weaning off of caffeine as I won’t be able to get it at the hospital post-op. I get a headache early afternoon so I’ve worked on reducing my intake. My pre-op diet starts 3/9. Have to take in only 1000 cals/day to reduce the size of my liver during the pre-op stage. Good luck everyone! It’s a gift to ourselves to live a longer and healthier life.

Absolutely. It’s 2:15 And I have to be at hospital at 5:30 this morning and I am wide awake with all the same feelings. I will Check in afterwards when feeling up to it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
