I did have a problem with the little dizziness or weakness. It was about eight days postop. I laid down and I took my blood pressure which seem to be a little low. I took a little nap and after that I seem to be okay I did add more Water that day and I seem to be fine. I have not had any other problems and today is my post op.I have been taking blood pressure pills for about 13 years now and it seems that my blood pressure is starting to be pretty low. I will see my doctor in a couple of weeks my primary care doctor that is, and see what he suggests. I understand that you normally don't get off your blood pressure meds until you lose about 50 pounds.

Deb

I'm praying for you too. You will do fine.

@@lovelytrl -Are you on blood pressure meds? If so, maybe you both are having low blood pressure- - sometimes you'll need less medication even after 5-10 lbs, can you check it at home? If not,then Fluid seem the likely cause

@@Peekboo funny how doctors are different. My discharge instructions were to take my pressure every day, if 130 or less, don't take my meds. If 131 or higher, take it. Thankfully I did not have to take it yesterday & today

@@lovelytrl on the same note, like someone else mentioned, it could be your pressure. May want to discuss w/your doc.

Curious to see if I get dizzy spells too.

Good Morning everyone, today I woke up not at my best. I felt dizzy every time I stood up. I'm 7 days post op have any of you experienced this? Maybe I'm not getting enough Fluid in? I did pretty good the day before yesterday but yesterday not so good.[/quote

I woke up feeling the same way today. I am 5 days post op.

My blood pressure has been running about 120/63 for the last week. Maybe I should see my doc sooner. I will ask the surgeon this afternoon at my appointment.

Has anyone tried the New Whey liquid Protien ? If so how did you do with it? I had my sleeve done on the 16th I have doing pretty good with everything thing until today. When I tried the liquid protein... It did not agree with me at all.

on the reviews on Amazon. Some said that it was a collagen Protein and not whey and not helpful in maintaining you post surgery.

I just took my pressure it's 126/74 maybe I'm not getting in enough fluids. I just put a call into my doctors office I had to answer a boat load of questions and now I'm waiting on a return call after she speaks with my doctor. Hope everyone is having a great day.

@@athomas125 could be dehydration, lung capacity or blood pressure. I'm not having dizziness, but I do get out of breath very easily.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
