Yes very weak!! Hoping my energy and strength come back soon. I was sleeved on 5/5/15. It's been a little rough, but I know it will be all worth it. Hang in there!

Hi! I was sleeved on 5/6 had some serious set backs along the way (allergy to meds put me back into the hospital & internal suture popped) so I was out of commission for the first 2 weeks. Here it is 6/2 and I'm 15lbs down. I've had a stall over the past week but I'm hoping that passes. I meet with the surgeon on Thursday and I'm hoping he clears me for more exercise besides walking.

Hi there, my name is Kimberly and I am also very tired and week. At first I had energy but this week it is at a zero. I only did a 1 week pre op diet since my BMI was at 40

Start wt - 244

At surgery - 238

6/2 - 229

Oh surgery date was 5/19

The scale hasn't moved in 3 days but I have had a hard time getting my Water and Protein in.

Not much worried since last time a couple days passed it jumped down a few pounds at once.

Hi, I had my surgery on 5/18 and I'm doing pretty good. I started purée foods yesterday and its a bit better. I've lost 12ibs since my surgery and that's encouraging. I had my post op today and they said all looked good. I'm just kind of over the liquids. I also had a 2 week pre op diet of liquids. Just trying to get my Protein and Water in. I've also been feeling hungry, I guess? Going to try an anacid like Pepcid, like a lot of people have been suggesting. I tried tums but that didn't do a thing.

Hi May sleevers,

I had my surgery on 5/18 and I've lost 22 lbs since my pre-op. Losing pretty slow I think. I went for my 2 week post-op today and the surgeon was pleased with my results so far. She did tell me I was dehydrated and if I didn't increase my Fluid intake I could be hospitalized. Working on increasing my Water, Protein and food. I'm sure this is why I still feel weak, lethargic and dizzy all the time. I feel like I'm getting better, but my weight has been stalling and creeping up, not going in the desired direction (down). I walk almost 10k steps a day, I'm just ready to lose????

Hi all. I was sleeved on 05/20 and I'm doing well. I just need to drink more Water. It's hard to get it all in during the course of a day. But other than that I'm feeling fine. I'm down 12lbs since my surgery and I managed to lose 50lbs in as many days before my surgery.

Hey all,

I was sleeved on May 26 and I am down a total of 19 lbs from highest of 312. I had a very difficult time losing weight on pre-op diet. I had such a hard time losing, period! My metabolism was so effed up from yoyo dieting, and meds I was on.

Good to hear from everyone.

      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.
