Post surgery recovery was a lot more difficult than I anticipated, but now the only problem I have is that I am not sleeping through the night. I sleep for a few hours and then need to sit up for a couple hours. I ve lost 27lbs so far, but it's hard to be excited when your lacking sleep.

kss, can you ask your doc for a prescription to help you sleep or could you ask him if you could take the new liquid over the counter med made by nyquil but it is just for sleep.

I have really bad insomnia and have for many years. I take ambien every night. I sure hope I can continue it post op.

There may even be other things that can help, melatonin, (health food store) and I think there is a "sleepy time tea" But you need to check with your Doc. Sleep is very important part of healing. Hope you get some rest soon.

Thanks. I am honestly scared to take more drugs. I don't know if my stomach could handle it. I'm sleeping like 3 hours at a time. Seems to be getting better.

You sound like me when I got out of surgery my first three days were like why oh why. Well my surgery was August 2, I have lost 94 lb. and sleep about 5 hours a night but have so much energy now I feel like I am 21 all over again

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
