  • Just wanted to put a note here for anyone that wanders through.  The new site set up can make life.... interesting, shall we say?  Anyways, the sleeve group has always been small, with visitors few and far between. Join us and many of our pouch packing friends at the Gastric Bypass Surgery group.   See you there!
  • Hello again. As stated I'm a newbie to group/chat places although I like Twitter. I also have Facebook acct which is open to public if any interests to bio info.

    Surgery in 2 weeks and 2 days!

    Hello out there, I am scheduled for my sleeve surgery on 8/8/14 and I need a support group. I am a traveling consultant and will not be home when the local support group meets. I am a nurse so the pre-op and post-op lists of dos and don'ts are understandable and make sense. I have ordered my vitamins from Celebrate and also tried their soup protein drinks. The Chicken soup is good, the tomato...

    5 weeks out from the sleeve....

    Hi, It looks like we're still in the minority here. I haven't had a difficult transition from liquids to foods, or with new foods, but I do have to watch out for "one too many bites." Especially when I'm late for a meal. It's awful how hungry I get when I'm late and I can rush a bit. Please let me know if there are more of us out there, OK?
  • Hi, i am on the journey to getting the gastric sleeve done. i was wondering what experiences others have had with this surgery. Good or bad. i would love it if you would share your journey with the sleeve and how it has been going after surgery :) If you have had any troubles? how much weight you lost? how do you feel now after surgery? kinds of things like that. thank you so much for any replies...
  • I'm looking for support for the sleeve. I hope I found it here. I noticed that a few have had their surgery recently. How did it go? How are ya'll doing?My date is November 13, 2013.
  • I was just looking for some people having the sleeve procedure. Mine is 8/9/13. In pre-op liquid phase.. reading as much as I can so i can think about the road ahead and learn from others experiences.
  • Hi everyone. I'm new to this group. I will be having the sleeve done 9/3/13. Starting liquid phase 1 week preop Aug 27th. I'm nervous about what to expect postop. Can anyone share their experiences?

    Gastric Sleeve

    I see this group here, but it doesn't seem to be active. I'm sure there are plenty of sleevers out there. Let's support each other. Our needs are a little different than those with bypass or banding. I'm almost 7 months out. Doing pretty well. But, like everyone else, it's good to have support from those in the same boat.

    Hello Fellow Sleevers

    Hi,I've been hanging around in the gastric bypass group, because when I joined there was no sleeve group. Glad to find you. I'll post to the GB group and see if I can round up the sleevers and have them join here too.My surgery is scheduled for February 13th, surgeon Dr. Paul Kemmeter at Grand Health Partners in Grand Rapids, MI. I'm beginning to feel a bit of anxiety, not about the surgery...
  • I am in the process of getting the gastric sleeve. I was wondering if anyone who has had the surgey and give me any tips, suggestions, advice, comments or even let me know there story!Thank you!
