I’m almost 2 months post op and after surgery I was losing weight but now on my normal diet and even following my doctors instructions I’ve gained 8 pounds in a week and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
I exercise 60 minutes a day and I’m eating what my doctor suggested. I don’t know if it’s stress because I am very much stressed out but I don’t feel the need to eat away my emotions anymore.
I'm just discouraged and wasn’t expecting to gain 8 pounds in a week.
I also was told I need to take a probiotic due to chronic constipation now. I’ve tried 2 different types so far.
the first was a chewable but it tasted nasty and made me gag. I already take calcium chewables and I can barely tolerate those but the calcium pills are too big for me and cutting them doesn’t help.
I then switched to ProCare with the 3 in 1 basically. But I’ve found it hard to take the capsules. Before my surgery I took 8 capsules a day of a medicine called Diamox but stopped after surgery so I don’t know if it’s just the thought of taking capsules that big again or what but I can’t and it sucks.
my question is: has anyone found any probiotic that works for you that is small like smaller or the same size of a Tylenol pill? And has anyone experienced rapid weight gain or what has helped you lose weight after surgery?
