    May 2018 sleevers and bypassians

    That's really awesome. I've been away so sorry it's taken a while to get back to you. My current loss is 20kg all up. 9 was on optifast, the other 11 has been post op over a 7 week period. I don't seem to be as fast as others, but the clothes are telling a better story than the scales. Someone suggested I may be turning some fat into muscle, hence the slower loss on the scales. I also did have a holiday in the last couple of weeks, where I did indulge in some wine again. Back on track now and just starting to feel like regular exercise. I'm off to see my surgeon for post op visit this afternoon. Hopefully he is happy with me.

    Vitamin Patches

    Hi yes I found this site tonight called www.patchwerx.com.au great products patches come in monthly packs much better than swallowing tablets, great price around $25 and I'm sure free postage over $60 anyway I hope it helps

    Vegan sleevers

    YAY! Vegan sleeve over here too!! I'm booked in for September 18th so still a while away. I was surprised that when I met with the dietitian, she didn't already have any dairy free alternatives to opti-fast in place, I wonder how all the lactose intolerant sleevers in that clinic went :/ She did say that she would do some research and give me a vegan alternative to opti-fast seeing as I have some time before my surgery. However the chewable multi vitamins were vegan and I will post up a photo of them for you the next time I'm due in (21st of August). When is your surgery booked in for? So glad I met another Vegan sleever :)

    @Bigm666 You will see a Bariatric Specialist Dietitian pre-op - go for whatever they recommend for the first, say 3, months. Chewable/sublingual - these don't put strain on your new tiny tummy - takes 10 weeks for the incision (stomach) to heal. Then after that, IMHO, then brands such as Swisse are fine. And eat healthy, nutritious food that gives you bang for your buck nutrition wise.

    Update

    Amazing results! I don't do exercise because I get in 10000 steps or more on work days as it's a 2 story building so climbing the stairs multiple times, lots of walking, etc. I've found lots of us have weird periods post op from the fb support pages. I had the Depo shot and had my period. 3 weeks later I got it again and it lasted over 2 weeks. I had to get blood tests and ultrasound done to rule out any problems. Luckily nothing for around 3 weeks now. Do you find you feel the cold more? I definitely do and you mentioned summer, I hope I can handle the heat better.

    How Much Fat

    Have you looked on the Optifast website under intensive phase? Don't be scared to call your dietician tomorrow to ask as the advice can vary from each team.

    I take Swisse Calcium and vitamin D, Ferrograd C and Celebrate multivitamin. Celebrate is only Available in the US but that is what's recommended for sips patients. Unsure about Roux en y patients. You will need a chewable for first 4 weeks or as directed by your team.

    You will need a bariatric specific vitamin post op, multivitamins you get over the counter are not recommended - usually they have high levels of the cheaper vitamins (some of the B group, usually) and lower levels of what we need, like B12 and iron. Good brands are BN multivitamins and Elevit pregnancy for its higher iron levels.

    How Much Fat

    Hi Boganlicious Thanks for your reply - yes I am under a dietician but couldn’t find any info on fat allowance per day?

    How Much Fat

    You are allowed oil each day. It's either 2 teaspoons or 2 tablespoons (sorry my brains not working properly yet I'm sleep deprived). Make sure you have your oil each day as it keeps your gallbladder functioning (this is what I was told). Are you under the care of a dietician?

    Accountability

    Hi, sorry I can't answer that. Thankfully I didn't have to do a pre-operative diet! I can thoroughly recommend that you see a Dietitian specialising in Bariatric Surgery for support and guidance during every stage pre and post-op diet wise. All the best!

    How Much Fat

    Hi All I’ve just started on the preoperative VLCD diet prior to my sleeve procedure on 31/7. Just wondering how much fat is permissible each day? Cheers Ceri - aka Boss Lady

    I feel amazing. I'm dressed up as Wonder Woman it was superhero day at work. No Way would I have ever fit my costume pre surgery. I'm happy and full of confidence even though I'm not at my goal weight yet. How are you going?

    Reflux is killing me!

    Reflux is killing me!

    Hi guys, I got my band in February 2017. It has been amazing! I have had next to zero issues until a couple of weeks ago. I am experiencing the worst acid reflux I have ever experienced. It's waking me up at night, and stopping me from eating for most of the day. I haven't had a fill in 4 months so I don't think the band is too tight, but no idea what would have changed recently to make me feel this reflux. Does anyone have any ideas if I need to get my band loosened or should I just take some anti reflux meds until it passes? Appreciate any words of wisdom that anyone has! Thanks xxx
