    I have no idea what "normal"' is, but I did not reach 1000 calories until I was about 1 year out.
    I am now more than 2,5 years out and 1200 calories is my "normal".

    Try ice cold, cold, luke warm or warm.
    Maybe one goes down easier than another.

    Water in itself is very hard to swallow after surgery.
    This has something to...

    Re: 3 1/2 weeks VSG issue

    Don't worry, you can't stretch you stomach in 3,5 weeks.
    What you may notice is an increase in the amount of food you can eat, but that is due to fact that your sleeve swelling diminishes.

    I don't know about surgery in Mexico.
    But I do know that a balloon is a waste of money.

    Women will never get so much muscle mass it will fill up your skin, that is just not in our genes.
