Hi everyone,

I'm have a Gastric Bypass on 3 March 2017 and would like to hear from anyone that has the above illnesses or something similar.

Would like to hear of your experiences.

Good luck everyone and thanks,

Hi, I don't have CFS but I do have Fibromyalgia with similar symptoms. I'm looking at April for my surgery date, and hoping getting some weight off will help my joints feel better and also my energy level

I have fibro, not CFS, but my fibro manifests with crazy exhaustion during flares. I've been sleeping far more than most VSGers since my op (Mar 27, 2017), and I slept entirely through Wednesday after being out all day on Tuesday. HOWEVER, it's been getting less day by day, and the pain that accompanies flares has been significantly less than pre-surgery. I think we, on this illness spectrum, can expect we might not be as active right out of the gate, but the surgery should, hopefully, get us to a place where we can reap the benefits of exercise all our rheumatologists keep telling us about long-term. That said, if you're taking time off from work to recover, you might want to consider doubling the usual time off standard to allow your body more time to find the new equilibrium.
