  1. Like the others said, call your doctor, pain isn’t something to delay action on. Call now!
  2. I’ve not heard of a program goal of less than 60g a day. It’s actually not that hard to maintain, eating with a protein first mentality makes it pretty easy to get at least 60 a day for me.
  3. “Your body, your rules.” Tell who you are comfortable telling, there are no rules about it. It can be easier to tell strangers as you won’t see them again, so who cares what they think.
  4. Most likely the grease along with the meat being too dense for your new sleeve. No matter how much you chew some things they are just too dense this early out.
  5. No worries, lots of information flying around TT. Hope all is well.
  6. As the others said, it is completely normal, they pump you full of fluids and there is swelling from the surgery, its normal to weigh more. I think I was up about 15 pounds when I came home from my sleeve.

    Not very happy

    Sorry you're having a tough time. Hemorrhoids suck! When did you have your surgery? Hydration is key, I know its hard, but drink all you can; small consistent sips. Don't try and gulp down any fluids.
  8. No worries Carina, had all my excess skin removed, its the norm to come home with Drains.
  9. Many Sleevers don't get the need for vitamins. They are important for anyone sleeved or not.

  11. I wish I could say something that would make the pain go away. All I can do is to keep you in my prayers.
  12. I'm doing good, thanks. Drain is still in, my wife has nicknamed it "Juicy". But it should be out Monday...fingers crossed.
  13. It will come, be patient, your new stomach is still very tender and healing.
  14. Been there, I remember taking an hour to eat a 5.3 oz yogurt.
