Extreme restriction after extended TT

on 7/13/12 9:27 am - CO
Had my extended TT yesterday and am at home recovering. Everything went well and Dr. removed 12 pounds! Crazy, right? Im having hard time eating, as my sleeve seems to have gotten super tight. It feels like food is stuck in my chest. Did any of you experience this as well? If so, for how long?

I had extreme restriction after my corset trunkplasty, even fluids had a hard time going down.  I am 8 weeks out now and am fine, other than the daily swelling in the afternoon/evening.

 12 pounds is amazing!  My appetite came back around week three.  Hang in there and sip protein shakes if you can.

 I did.  I would say it lasted a couple of weeks.  It was like being a newbie all over again.

Same here. I drank a lot of protein shakes the first couple weeks. By week 3 I think I was pretty much back to normal eating.
