    Re: Using a straw

    In was told not to use a straw because it causes you to suck air into your small tummy. I started using straws after 6 months or so.

    Re: Experiencing sweats

    Most people will tell you that they are not so hot after losing a large amount of weight. I do think it has improved for me to a degree. I used to sweat around my neck and head. Then perspiration...

    Re: Experiencing sweats

    I thought I'd clarify my previous post. I am 60 and had my surgery 2 years ago. I started menopause about age 40 and have had hot flashes since. Losing 80 pounds has helped quite a bit, but my body...

    Re: Gulping water

    I just spoke with my nut yesterday about gulping water. I sip throughout the day but sometimes I gulp. When I told her I can drink 8 ounces in 15 minutes, she said that is fine at 2 years out. I was...

    Re: 12 weeks post opp

    Wow that is fantastic. I too have not missed alcohol. I had nothing to drink for 1 year and one glass of wine is all I drink. I find alcohol is hard on my stomach.

    Re: I feel like I didn't have surgery

    I agree with Ann. The soft foods slide right through our bodies. Once you are eating meat and vegetables, it will take more time to digest and keep you full longer.

    Re: By By!!

    Congrats Tamera! Being able to breath is something that gradually improved for me. I no longer snore and my asthma is much better. I used to move around the house huffing and puffing. I don't miss...

    Re: Experiencing sweats

    I'd call your doctor and ask them. I'm hot most of the time and that hasn't changed since the surgery. I do remember having some chills post-op. My doctor said the change in hormone causes hot/cold...

    Re: Today is the day!!! Surgery day is here

    If you are like many of us, you have given too much, or just not treated yourself well. It's ok to be your own project and focus on your health and looks. It's not selfish or vain. It's the best...

    Drinking liquids

    I am more than 1 year post op and doing well. I am concerned that I am gulping too much. I don't drink too much overall during the day though. I wonder what the size of my pouch is now.

    Re: Just sleeved

    The drains didn't bother me at all and I had them a long time. The good news is that they didn't hurt a bit when they were removed.

    Re: It's finally my day

    It's totally normal. As soon as you wake up from surgery, you will no longer have that feeling. Good luck!
