Tired all the time, anyone else having this?



Recommended Posts

I got my sleeve on 12-3-13. Initially I felt like I was run over by a truck but then I turned the corner and felt better. I've had good weight loss, 52 lbs but I am still tired most of the time. One would think loosing weight would bring more energy but that's not the case. I've been taking all my Vitamins and I give myself B-12 shots. Anyone else experiencing fatigue?

I had surgery on 12-27-13 and I was experiencing fatigue long before that. I too though that my energy levels would increase as I lost the weight. But it's still the same. I have waves of energy then come crashing down. I've been taking Vitamins, Calcium and B12 - I'll feel really good for a few hours afterwards, but then lose all my energy. I guess I need to go and have my blood tested, but I keep putting it off.

The only way I've found to keep my energy levels kinda even is to drink coffee with a little real sugar in it. I think the combination of caffeine and sugar being slowly released into my system stabilizes my energy levels.

According to my surgeon it's best to do lab work at the 6 mos. post op. I know I've gotta be deficient in something. I am going to see my PCP so maybe she can do some blood work.

      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?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
