Today is two weeks post op and I feel sick half of the day everyday. Most of the time it's in the morning but, today I did something different. I took my meds at night instead of the morning and I had a yogurt instead of a Protein shake for Breakfast and I felt like a million bucks! But now I feel like sick. I'm not throwing up or anything but my head is dizzy and I have a headache. What am I doing wrong? I want to feel great all day or is it just to soon for that?

How is your hydration? Being dehydrated can make you feel sick, nauseated, weak, headache and even dizzy if it gets bad enough.

The most difficult thing for us WLS patients is to stay hydrated. Are you getting 64oz of fluids?

That could be what is causing your symptoms. I know it is hard, I had a hard time for the first month but once I was able to get fluids in me, I immediately got my energy back too.

It was about 7 weeks before I started feeling myself.

Best of luck to you!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
