Stress, newly sleeved



Recommended Posts

I need help, please. I was sleeved 6 weeks ago. My husband of 16 years passed away Saturday. I'm feeling very dizzy and lightheaded this morning. Makes me nervous to get out of chair. I've been drinking, of course not near 64oz. Eating, but not as much as I should. Urinating normally. Any suggestions? Thank you

First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. I'm sure there are a million reasons you are dizzy and lightheaded. You might be dehydrated so push the fluids, maybe get yourself a Protein shake too.

I'm guessing that you have 1,000 things to attend to today, but maybe check in with your doctor when you can.

Again, so so sorry.

I haven't been sleeved yet so I really can't give you feedback as to why you're not feeling well, but I just wanted to give you my condolences.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you must be feeling. Taking care of yourself needs to be a priority and I suspect you do not have the emotional energy to even do that. Do you have friends and family who are with you to encourage and support you? Are you getting any sleep? Obviously drinking and eating what you can is important, but I think resting your mind may be the best thing you can do. Touch base with your doctor about how you are feeling and if you need any medication for sleep and/or anxiety. The other thing that comes to mind is to make sure you have someone to talk to, whether that be a professional or friends or family. Again, I am so sorry for your enormous loss. Take care and peace to you.

I'm sorry for your loss. Stress w the sleeve isn't a good mix at all. Stay hydrated and pls try to get soft foods down like Soup if possible.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
