About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

A PSA for fellow sleevers:

 As much as you might think you can drink like you used to, DON'T DO IT. 

I miss chugging water.  I actually LIKE water and pre-op would drink around 3 Litres a day. Sometimes I forget that I can't anymore.  Until I do it.  And then.  Ow.


  1. Right now I'm doing spin classes and I definitely feel the need to chug water. So my question is, I guess you can't do that anymore if you're doing some fitness class and you feel like you need to dump the whole bottle in your mouth? Hmm I wonder if I'll have to stop doing those classes for a while.

  2. Nope, chugging water is near impossible for me now. I was the same when I would work out Pre-op, I'd guzzle a whole bottle at 1 time. At 6 wks out I can get a glug glug... and that's it. Two gulps max and sleevie is full and I have to wait until it empties.
