    Corned beef

    I agree with @Bling Babe 100g was my guideline post op, although I'm sleeved, it was the same advice for bypass too. It took me a while to get to that point though but adding gravy should make it easier to eat. Just go slowly and remember the 20 20 20 guidelines. I now want some corned beef...

    @Parsnip and @Awalsh90 this thread was posted in January last year. It's a shame no one commented at the time, so thanks for replying now but the original poster is no longer active :D

    Oh dear TB it could be dumping, that's certainly how it effects me anyway, feeling or being sick then, feeling wiped out. It could have been the strawberries or the yoghurt but sometimes it's not obvious what caused it. Try not to let it worry you though as hopefully it'll be an isolated...

    Newbie to the forum and to my 1 week old pouch!

    Whichever one you want to use @jules2, some people want to reflect their heaviest weight as the starting point and others the day of surgery weight. Sound advice from the nurse, it's all about healing for now, moving little and often and keeping your fluids up. The dietitian will no doubt have...

    Homerton or private?

    Hello and welcome! I cant answer your questions re waiting times at your local hospital but do they still do the band there for NHS patients? The waiting times do tend to be long and before you even get put forward, you'll have to go to various appointments (tier 3). The appointments are a...

    Well done for trying the tuna and now you know what restriction feels like too! There's nothing wrong with being cautious, slow and steady and all that. Just take things at your own pace and stop as soon as you feel full xx

    Liquid diet help

    Hello and welcome! The pre op diet is really hard for the first few days but if that's what you've been asked to do, its vital that you stick to it. Only your surgeon can advise on an alternative, so your best bet is to contact them. You'll be on a liquid diet post op for a couple of weeks...

    Its great to have you back TB and I hope we can all support you on this leg of your journey. Since converting to a sleeve, I've not really posted much (apart from early days) and stuck to moderating, for my sins. My fellow sleevers/bypassers from 2016 have all but gone. As for the 2009 crew...
