I have no energy,,,



Recommended Posts

I am on my 11th day of full liquid Protein pre-op diet and I have no energy. I am getting in 54 to 68 Proteins and I am drinking my Water.

Did anyone else have this fatique? My surgery date is next Tuesday and I am worried if I feel this tired now I will be super tired after my surgery.

Too tired to breathe! :(

Your tired because you are not getting any calories or carbs. It will get better a couple of weeks after surgery and when your able to start eating solids foods again.

Are you getting enough liquid? If yes, you need carbs. Talk to your surgeon’s office, but this is normal due to the radical change in diet. I was like a baby and wanted to sleep most of the time. Luckily another VSG patient here posted about ice cream. She was dizzy and her surgeon told her to eat a little ice cream. I followed that just a few bits of that or frozen yogurt and it made a big difference. Just don't get into old bad habits and make this part of your everyday regimen. Wishing you a speedy recovery. I have no regrets and results are more than I could have hoped.

Legal, thanks for the suggestion. My surgery is tomorrow so I am afraid to try that so close. But if this continues afterward I will certainly try this.

Thank you for the well wishes-I AM READY!!!

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
