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%.

I also was having low energy and weak, my doctor said i wasn’t getting enough fluids and wasn’t taking my Vitamins like i should . My body didn’t adjust to my sleeve and now i have a feeding tube to get all my nutrients and fluids i had my sleeve done 9/11

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

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
