Tired of Being Tired - When Does it Get Better?



Recommended Posts

I'm 12 or 13 weeks post-op. I lost count. I'm so tired all the time with no energy. Is this normal? I assume so, due to the lack of calories I'm intaking (typically <700) compared to what I did pre-op. Anything I can do to get my energy back? I take b-12, b-complex, and all the vites I'm supposed to.

Tired of feeling tired all the time!

I haven't had my Iron or any levels checked. I need to do that.

I get in between 70 and 90g of protein a day, and 80 to 100 oz of Water.

I would definitely get your levels checked. I was having that same fatigue problem preop and I turned out to be low Iron. 2 days of iron supplement made an unbelievable difference.

Great job on the Water and protein! Yep Iron would be my next guess.

Noticed you're in Dallas. Lots of great support groups in our area, I highly recommend if you aren't involved already.

Your lack of energy might also be related to lack of carbohydrates. Are you eating low carb? Low carb, in my opinion, is 20-30 carbs a day. It is a bit of a catch 22 because low carb diets usually yield very good weight loss results because your body is in ketosis, but it also leaves you quite tired. This is how I ate for the first 5 months. Your energy should come back when you increase calories and carbs. I want to echo don's question also: are you eating enough Protein? Lack of adequate protein will leave you tired. Try and eat as much protein as you can and when the time is right, introduce good carbs back into your diet. You might consider energy squares from nuts.com as these are little bursts of good carbs and fats to give you desired energy. I like chocolate paradise the most.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
