I haven’t experienced this. Are you eating enough?

I am having about 600 calories a day. Do you think that is enough?

Hi @acruise28 we were both sleeved on same day, I have lost 24lbs since surgery and I do have low energy levels as well and also eating about 500-600 calories. Dr said it was normal at this stage. I see him again Saturday and they will start me on some exercise and I assume they will ask me to up my intake as I don't see how at this level I can do much at all besides walking. As for now they told me to just focus on getting about 30 grams of Protein a day. Hang in there and keep me posted, I'll do the same.

You are only a couple weeks postop, low energy is the name of the game this early. Took me about 3 months to feel 100%.

Oh, goodness! Did the doctor say how long he/she expects you to need the tube? What was happening before they put the tube in?

I go see him on the 17th to see if my levels have increased enough to take it out, but after my surgery i was just constantly throwing up everything that i consumed even when i tried to do i teaspoon every 15 minutes to the point i started to not being able to keep my Water down he ran so many test and couldn’t find anything til finally he did a scope and seen that the top part of my stomach is cut a little narrow than the bottom so it easily comes back up and i was throwing up so much it inflamed the lining of my esophagus and stomach so that’s why my water started coming back up so he have me some kind of medicine that coats my stomach so i take that before i put Protein Shakes and water down my tube i have had it for 2 weeks now@berry78
