Achiness all over



Recommended Posts

Does anyone else hurt, especially their legs and hips? I ache so bad. It's gotten worse the further out from my surgery. (3 months, down 85 from start of program) I take Tylenol to help but it wears off at night and I wake up. Thoughts?

Yes! I'm almost 5 weeks post op and am wondering what's going on. I thought losing weight would help. Maybe our joints are adjusting? I don't know but I'm right there with you. I figure it will pass but hoping soon! (Mostly notice when I wake up. Maybe I'm just old!)

Oh yes! I am nearly 12 months out and my hips, legs and back are in severe pain every day. I hope if I am adjusting it happens soon.

On a good note me knees feel better.

I would get your blood work checked and let your regular doc know about these symptoms as well. I have rheumatoid arthritis and this is my everyday how you are describing. Also if you are working out every day you will probably feel sore in the morning.

It seems I have read somewhere that aches and pains are worse before getting better. I don't remember the whys though. I hope you feel better soon!

It might be your body adjusting to being smaller. My muscles have to adjust to my bones. I had a lot of pain, but my surgeon referred me to physical therapist. I do the physical therapy in a heated pool, which is really great.

that's good to know. My doc referred me to physical therapy too. Didn't think it would help but I will try since you are getting results.

Hopefully, it'll get better for you. I had major lower back/buttock pain after I was about a year out and 100 or so pounds down. Exercise helped and lots of trips to my chiropractor. I've noticed that my body continues to change shape also, even with slight changes on the scale my core and bottom are starting to finally lift and show progress. The pain is not as bad but it rears its ugly little head occasionally.

        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.
