    I all.

    Can anyone tell me what the reason is for not drinking fizzy drinks…. Is it the same for the band and bypass? And what happens if you do and what’s the symptoms ??


    Love John xxxx


    Hi John,
    Don’t know about the band, only know about the bypass and I have found that I can drink a “fizzy” drink as long as it has been sitting a little while and a lot of the fizz has gone, if I forget to leave it for a while I get a lot of pain in my pouch I presume where it fizzy’s up and it bloats me out as after all it is gas I am putting down there, so I don’t very often have anything fizzy. If I am out and I have wine with soda or lime and soda or if I feel really naughty half a cider I have loads of ice with them all takes the fizz away and dilutes them. Sure someone will tell you more.

    Hi John

    Band or bypass, fizzy drinks are not recommended for at least a year as they can stretch the pouch over time. It can be very, very painful and will make you feel like you have a balloon in your tum (which essentially you would have!) Also, unless you choose a diet or sugar free version, they are FULL of sugar which will make you dump (bypass) or gain weight. They are also hellishly damaging to your teeth.

    So, best avoided all round really. Although saying that, at a wedding last year I had a few glasses of bubbly and was fine – squiffy but fine. I’m almost 4 years out though so my pouch has settled down to a nice regular routine.

    Hope that helps.
