I know I feel the same way and I'm 5 days post-op. I've heard from many people though that they have all felt this way and every thing that we are feeling is normal. Although I'm tired and weak and dizzy right now I know that I'm not alone and that makes me feel a little better. My friend is 14 months post-op and she said the first month is hell and then it gets better and better. She's eating everything she did before just in smaller amounts and she's this tiny little thing. When I talked to her it made me feel better. Hope I helped.

I get dizzy too. My doc said one sign of dehydration. I drink G2 and Water. Dehydration was one of the causes for my er visit along with low blood (had to get a blood transfusion about 3 weeks ago ). I would try G2 littlebites a member here told me about the G2. I crush ice and G2 together I use a spoon. I start feeling better. Not getting enough nourishment is another cause is what I was told as well. I put unflavored Protein in my applesauce. I take nausea medications too. If you don't get better call your doctors answering service or go to the er.

I hope you feel better.

Hello- I am about 7 weeks post op and the first three weeks were like being in a tornado. I had zero energy and was dizzy all the time. My surgeon suggested additional Iron as I may have been anemic during that time. Let me tell you the day after my first iron supplement, I felt like a whole new person. PLEASE take the time to rest. It was extremely difficult for me with three kids, but I can't stress how important it is just to take it easy and rest rest rest. Things will be back to normal soon! Good luck!

Be patient. I was probably feeling normal at two weeks and could say 100% at four weeks

I'm 6 weeks post op, I just got back to the gym. It takes time. You have to be kind to yourself. You have to look at it like you have a brand new organ, let your body get used to it. The getting tired easy thing will last until you can get some Vitamins and Protein in you. The tired after eating thing I still have, like my stomach sucks all my energy to digest. But it will get better. It's a process, just have paitence with yourself and its not laziness to rest after a major surgery. Don't feel pressure to jump back into life so soon. Take it easy, you don't want complications.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
