    What you feel is common. My first week post op I was so motivated and tried to do some light cleaning around the house and it was too much. I had to take a pain pill and lay down bec I guess I had done too much bending without really realizing it. After a few days, I did go to the gym to walk slowly on the treadmill and used the bike a little and I felt better. But, like some other comments said, we had a very big surgery and need time to heal. I had been feeling the same way also, kinda down, but it gets better. The clear to full liquid stage was the worst for me. Now that im stage 3 on purees only, im feeling much better. Just make sure your getting all of your Proteins and liquids in. That also made a big diff bec the days that I didnt hit my minimum goals set by the RD, i felt weak and down, prob bec of dehydration. I hope this helps. Hang in there. We are on the other side of our journey of not jst hoping, but happening.

    NewMeDay got a reaction from dbbonoso in LADIES ONLY! Period after vsg   
    Wow..i couldnt imagine not being able to take anything. You are a trooper! lol. They gave us prescription liquid Tyenol upon discharge, along with celebrex, but those were only a 5dy-1week supply. I was allowed to buy OTC liquid baby tylenol, but now i take the actual extra strength tylenal pills. We were told no NSAIDs at all though. I hate cramps with a passion, but im glad that i still have a period bec I dont have any children yet and im getting older. I have a small window of time to get preg naturally, which was another reason for getting sleeved bec i was jst too big for a safe pregnancy. So, im actually looking fwd to the 18mos post-op when I will be able to try to get pregnant [emoji144] [emoji120]

    NewMeDay got a reaction from justmetj in I know it's nobody's business BUT   
    I agree. To each, his own. My weight loss is nobody's business. Its more freeing to me to not have the conversation about my health. Im not ashamed that I did something good for myself, but for me, its a private medical issue that I dont feel like discussing. The fact is, is that we all had/have an eating disorder, where we had to make a life threatening/saving decision to cut a perfectly good organ in order to get our health under control. Im sorry (not sorry) but for me, this is not a Yay! Yay! Yay! celebration so "lets go tell the world" type of a deal. I admire and respect those who choose to tell ppl in order to educate and help others, which is their personal choice. But for ME, im not happy that i had to do this at all. Im only happy that this was an option and it is changing my health for the better and increasing my chances to live longer and decrease chances of acquiring preventable diseases. When I have children, I swear I will do everything in my power to teach them by example how to live a healthier lifestyle all the way around. At least the foundation will be established by me. What they choose to do as adults will be their choice.

    Everyone has to reach their own conclusion on this depending on their community/circle of friends. I told my husband, my two teen daughters and my best friend. My sister and my mother didn't know and still don't. I have been losing weight and gaining weight all my life. I told work I needed to have an abdominal surgery and would be out for a few days (I work from home 3 out of 5 days so it didn't affect the office much). If people ask how I've lost the weight, I tell them a very high Protein diet with no white flour or added sugars and that I drink close to a gallon of Water a day. I tell them how I work out for an hour a day, minimum, seven days a week.
    Now, at 2.5 years out, there are a whole lot of people who never knew me at my old weight and others who knew me then who don't recognize me now (and I'm fine not letting them know who I am).
    But I knew neither my sister nor my mother would be supportive. I didn't need that while struggling to make my decision and in the first month or so after surgery. I am a private person.

    NewMeDay reacted to Trix1017 in Chick-fil-a : post op   
    I had a chicken tender at 3 weeks post op… wasn't thinking and was out and about. Not good. It didn't stay put for long and I had my first (and so far only) serious case of dumping syndrome. I'll probably never eat another chicken tender again in my life! My own stupid fault, but live and learn LOL

    Yeah i don’t tell anyone. It’s not their business. Co workers don’t know because i’ve changed jobs since. It’s not shame or a secret it’s more like who cares? I don’t volunteer info about anything else in my life. Nor have i ever felt the need to announce that i was fat, so why announce that i’m not? If they as how i lost weight, i just say i watch what i eat which is very accurate and i workout a lot.

    Some people believe in telling the world because it could help someone and what not, that’s their choice. I’m always willing to help in a support group format. I would never discuss anyone’s weight otherwise.

    I also just don’t have time for nosy questions or judgement, it’s just freeing to be more private.

    They told me I wasn't allowed to take any Tylenol so I've been sucking it up [emoji123] lol but the pain is bad, on top of that I got my first dumping yesterday. So I didn't know if it was one or the other. Such a bad day

    I'm a little over 4 weeks post gastric sleeve. My stomach ALWAYS feels like it is growling/gnawing/gurgling or something. I've been on omeprazole daily since surgery. Is this common? Anyone else have this?

    Be sure to drink lots of Water to flush out the acidity from the juice, but it probably wouldn't hurt to call your doctor's office just to check with them. A phone call should work without having to see them. Sorry this happened to you.

    I’d call your doctor’s office to be sure. It probably won’t require an office visit. You are much more sensitive to acidity right now.

    Hi all,
    Just found this forum. So excited to have "friends" going through this with me. Was sleeved Jan. 14th, 2019. Down 22 pounds so far. (Exciting) But stalled this week. Trying not to get depressed about it. Started walking today. Hoping that will jumpstart things again. Would love advice and encouragement.

    Posted that I was a tearful mess at the exact same point as you. Sleeved 21st Jan and had my meltdown couple of days ago so you're right on schedule for the come down off all the drama and hormonal rollercoaster. Be kind to yourself and hope things steady soon. I have evened out today, but not relying on it. Folk here really helped.
