I have noticed, by reading your posts and blogs, that each surgeon gives different instructions after Gastric Sleeve surgery.
I have alluded to this before, but let me lay it out.............
I self paid for my surgery, had to borrow the money, had a little trouble getting it and when I did couldnt get the full amount.
Sooooo, instead of paying $24k for a surgeon/team who gave ongoing support for 2years post op, nutritionist, psychologist and support group INCLUSIVE in that price- I paid $17k for a surgeon who did the surgery. I had to pay extra to see the psychologist and extra each time i saw the surgeon at 6weeks, and then every 3 months after that.
Basically I had the surgery, got given a handbook and laters gators! lol
Let me just pop in a wee disclaimer at this point - I am VERY grateful I had this surgery and the surgeon did a good job with the surgery.
I do feel very frustrated with the lack of support from the medical team.
Thats where you lovely people come in! No pressure or anything but you guys are taking the place of Surgeon, nurse, psyhcologist, nutritionist AND support group!
So my question is this - if you were told to only eat three times a day, what reasons were you given and hows it working for you? For those who were told to eat 5-6 small meals a day, same question. I was given the 3x a day, no more, no less instructions but I am tempted to give the 5x a day thing a go.
Your thoughts please!
