I had my surgery on Oct 30 and I am on puree and drinking as much as I can. Popsicles are my new best friend. My problem is that with minimal movement, walking around the house I get hot where I need to go outside or strip some clothes off. I feel bad because I do not want to turn my heater on because of this and my poor husband freezes. I can only go to the store for a few minutes because I get hot and then feel exhausted. I have a appt tomorrow to have my Vitamin levels checked.

It takes awhile to get your energy back, that's for sure. Your body is running on so much less than it used to. And your hormones have been affected by the surgery. I myself am colder than I once was. I'm not sure how old you are, but I would think it's a function of your body adjusting to the changes it's going through. Every week you'll feel better, some days you'll feel whooped! I'm at 3 months and feeling much more myself than in the first 2, and I didn't have any set backs or problems of any kind.

Thank-you…I have Lupus and Sjogren's Syndrome on Monday's I take a form of chemo pills, so my immune system is low…maybe that has something to do with it as well. :(

What meds are you taking for your lupus? I was on planquinel and methotrexate. The methotrexate caused me to have the same symptoms you described. Felt like I was in menopause!! I quit both meds 2 weeks before surgery Sept 4th and have not taken anything since! Feel amazing! Weight is comin off slow... I've only lost 40.5. But I'm thrilled to be off the meds and feeling good. I was lower BMI so I expected to be a slower loser.

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
