I would hate to have to give up carbonated beverages, but it's all about what you get used to. If I couldn't manage my weight, I would look for the positives...as hard as that might sound. More than twenty years ago my sister had gastric by-pass surgery. She still says that it was one of the best moves she ever made. She is in good health, works five days a week, has more energy, feels more attractive in the clothes she enjoys wearing, and her heart likes the new her. Also, she stopped having pain in hips, knees and ankles.

Oh, and see, this is the reason I am glad to have the filter installed on Monday. I just don't ever want to 'throw a clot".

I'm very sorry about your friend.

Lena

Ok, let's get this straight. Carbonated beverages are the elixir of the GODS!

I will miss them greatly.

Many surgeons don't allow WLS patients to drink carbonated beverages because the gas can expand the newly formed stomach and also, the acid can cause ulcers in the new tummy. It's best just to stay away from them.

Sigh.

Good luck Lena. Don't worry, carbonated bevs are overrated.

Adam

I thought of having that surgery before too, but I had a friend throw a clot on the operating table and died. Why can you not ever drink carbonated liquids again?
