    Feeling frustrated and sad

    You are doing great. You just had surgery. The member that responded is precise in what she stated. Your fluid retention is hard at work, swelling will take weeks to return to baseline. Your body has been traumatized, surgically, but trauma all the same. Your physiology needs time to calm down. Your weight will not be accurate, do not be concerned about the scale. Your body needs to heal and recover, this takes time. Success will follow you...no worries. Be patient with yourself & your body. Each person’s anatomy/ physiology is different. How quickly you heal is also different. Try not to make comparisons, something we all do. You will heal, recover and be amazed just how proficient the human body can be. Soon you will see the results of the surgery and see the rewards of your hard efforts. Congratulations! I wish you well - Grace
