It does get better around 4-6 weeks. But, if you don't start seeing improvements talk to your surgeon or NUT to get advice. I personally had to tweak my Vitamins a little bit before I felt 100%.

It can be a combination of things. It's a major surgery so it's going to slow you down as you heal. But yes, that coupled with low intake makes it all the tougher. Some people seem that they felt up to returning to normal within a few days time, others really needed the 2-4 weeks off before they were back to normal. It wasn't until week 3 where I really felt like I was on the upswing with my energy levels.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
