    Hello Maria Louise, My sleeve still reminds me to eat small and slow. I am able to eat most foods, always get my protein first and eat around that with fruit and veg. My weight fluctuates up and down 5 lbs.

    I had a banded in 2009 too and lost about 50 lbs but I was not comfy with it, and it had to be removed 2011. The sleeve has been a totally different experience for me. So much better. I reached goal at one year and then lost 15 more, now I maintain. If I have a craving for a food that is not great to eat or drink I have a little, enjoy it and let it go.

    I hope you have a good experience with the sleeve. Follow the program and it will happen. Cheers Joanne

    Hello, I'm sorry I am just responding - I never log on here anymore. I was miserable with the band - my food was always getting stuck, throwing up, etc. The sleeve will definitely make a difference. I was worried about the same thing, but it worked out great for me. I am now a year and a half out, and I have lost 100 pounds. I stay around 144-148 pounds. I had complications in the beginning but I would still do it again a million times!! Good luck.

    Hi Dec I am doing well after my VSG and am almost 6 weeks out. I seem to have a more sensitive stomach than most and that has been my only issue. I can't take my chewable vitamins by mouth (gels are fine) but instead I have to mix them with my protein smoothies so that I can keep them down. My restriction starting working very well at about 5 weeks in. Which is why they have us eat the mushie foods for so long because we are healing. I have lost 27 lbs since surgery and 53 lbs total and am very happy with that. Congratulations on your possible surgery in December! My only regret is that I didn't have my surgery sooner. Keep in touch!

Sleeve after lapband ...

by Dec2015? on 09-07-2015 at 11:55 AM
Hi all members, I would really appreciate having your comments or experience with sleeve! Especially if you had lap band prior to your sleeve like me...would like to know if it is much different, in my case never in my almost 6 years living with the band had restriction so this is my fear going through this surgery and still not feel any changes!! For those of you that did not have band, but have been living with the sleeve for more than a few years do you still feel restrictions as when you where
