    Thats a good question for your surgeon. I don't recall either of those being on the Do Not Take list (unless its extended release) but can't be positive.

    I was told to expect pain like that off and on as I heal... as things that were a bit more tightly stitched heal and relax.

    Did you have bypass or sleeve? I would guess bypass, because sleevers are usually the left side, that's where they pull across your intestines the 3/4 of your natural stomach they are discarding. Right side is either liver retractor or the larger gauge surgical equipment like staplers. But none of mine ever hurt and they remove the vast amount of Carbon dioxide before you leave their OR so you don't have that to work out of your system. I was blessed can't tell me different!

    what your doctor said - that's a great way of looking at it. "The absence of hunger...". Also, "full" isn't going to the same for many of us as it did before surgery. I rarely feel full anymore like I did before - now, I start feeling a little uncomfortable (hard to explain the exact feeling - but..uncomfortable), and I know if I keep eating, I'm going to get sick. Early out, too, you're probably dealing with nerves that have been cut and not yet regenerated, so "stop eating" messages may not be getting from your stomach to your brain. So it's doubly important to measure things then....

    Yes, I have stalled for the last few days, fluctuating up and down .5 lbs. Today I was down a pound, so maybe it has broken, I'm hoping? I am 3 weeks post-op. I am not "full" either, but sticking to my eating plan. My dr said the idea is not to see how much you can eat until feeling full, but how little you can eat to feel the absence of hunger.

    the slow down in weight loss is the infamous "three week stall" (it's not always during week 3, but rest assured that almost all of us experience our first stall sometime during the first month after surgery. I had mine during weeks 2 and 3. Once my weight loss started up again during week 4, I dropped like 6-8 lbs practically overnight....)
    the starving part is sometimes due to dehydration or stomach acid. Are you getting enough to drink? Do they have you on an antacid? Many of us are prescribed something like omeprazole for the first 3-6 months after surgery.

    OMG! I'm so happy I could dance down the street naked! I FINALLY made it to Onederland today, 5 months post-op sleeve.
    I've been stuck in a stall for five weeks, teasing me at 202 and so close but so stuck and I thought I was never going to lose another ounce for a minute or two.
    But now I'm finally a LOSER! Yay! So excited! Now I feel like the scale will keep moving and it can go down to meet my goal.
    So glad to be in the 100's again!

    This is one of the reasons I am glad to be here...my first reaction was a bit of panic, because it was grilled into us to start taking the Vitamins & supplements after discharged home. Everyone helps keep things in perspective...

    Don’t panic about the Vitamins. You won’t die if you don’t start them for a few days. But you should call your doctors office to speak to someone about what they want you to take. Whatever you get, I don’t recommend starting with something you swallow- I’d suggest a chewable for a month or two at least. There are so many brands and price points and you may just need to try a few until you find what works best. But no need to panic or think you will be sick from not having them for a few days.
    I am always thirsty also- even right after surgery I drank a lot. Could be affects of the anesthesia giving you a bit of extra thirst as well. Good luck on your journey.
