    I think leaks tend to show up very quickly after surgery - often before you even leave the hospital. I'd contact the dietitian, though - feeling that way after 3 teaspoons of food that people can normally eat at four weeks out is a bit unusual. She may just tell you to go back to an earlier phase for a few days and then try again, but I'd definitely let her know what's going on just in case.....

    1/2 cup of food is 4 oz and that's about the size of food/meal I was told to eat, every two hours. Over that amount, you're over eating. Eating slower too, would help also! I am 7 years post op and still have the problem you are describing. Laying down on your back helps with the pain for some reason. At least it does to me.
    Good Luck!

    I'm down 55lbs since surgery 3 months ago and definitely noticing sagging and softness.
    I'm wearing a new, VERY tight compression shirt today and my organs hurt and I think it's causing nerve damage. But I keep getting compliments, so 🤷‍♂️!

    @Mikeyy No offense but I'm asking females only and I specified that in the title. I obviously understand about starting weight, BMI, etc. I was looking for motivation. I don't want to hear how men lose 100 lbs in two months, okay..thanks........

    I think I have tried almost everything. I have lost 100 and some change...I work out religiously but still a saggy belly and extra skin on the thighs....afraid at this point my only option would be a Tummy Tuck and lipo... sure it looks better than it did, but I'm still self conscious. And unless I win the lottery looks like spanks from here on out 😏

    I am taking collagen and i have read that drinking a TON of Water (80 or more ounces) helps tighten the skin too. Also I dry skin brush and slather my skin in homemade body butter made of cocoa butter coconut oil Shea butter Vitamin e and wheat germ oil... - i heave read that keeping the skin moisturized helps it snap back and it works for a lot of pregnant women. at the very least you'll have soft skin.

    No problem! I am glad I was able to help. As a side note, I also recommend watching Dr. Duc C. Vuong's video's. He is a bariatric surgeon that has a lot of videos that I found really helpful. Here is a link to his youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/DoctorVuong
