I am 2 days post sleeve and when I drink anything especially cold drinks it feels like my stomach spasms! That lasts for a few seconds. Has anyone experienced this?

Sip, sip, sip! You cannot "drink" yet, you must sip.

Your tummy is very sensitive after the surgery. Think about how your body spasms if doused in cold Water - same with your poor tummy at the moment. Try warm drinks. A lot of us found them more soothing than cool/cold which can be too harsh on our healing tummy. I made my shakes up using warm water or you can microwave them briefly if pre-made.

Interesting...I've often drunk room-temperature pre-made shakes. Most people prefer them chilled.

Whey-based powders tend clump if the drinks are heated. Plant-based powders can be more successfully heated in the microwave. I fixed an Orgain, "Peppermint Hot Chocolate" shake for Breakfast, added a teaspoon of espresso powder, mixed well, and nuked for 1 minute in the microwave.

Mine were whey based & I didn’t have any issue with clumping. Guess it just depends on the product. I used to microwave my chocolate one too & tried to convince myself it was real hot chocolate. Tried but … 😁

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
