Trouble getting up in the morning



Recommended Posts

Before surgery I was a lark owl (idk if that's a thing but I was just as happy to wake up early as I was staying up late.) Now that morning aspect is beyond gone. I struggle to get up and usually feel sick. Today I called in because I was sure I was going to pass out. I've been up for 2 hours and I'm starting to feel a little better.

Anyone else go through this? Do I just have to drag my feet through mornings now? I don't see my doctor or get lab results until the 2nd week of Feb.

I have never been a morning person, but it is so much harder for me to get up in the mornings now versus prior to my surgery. And i also feel a little sick as well. After i get up, take a shower and move around i start to feel better. There have been many times i have just wanted to call in.

Honestly, it took 2-3 months post op before I really felt fully human again. Stay hydrated, get plenty of sleep, it will get better.

Yup! I always got up at 5 or earlier and now I have to drag myself out of the bed at 6:30 when my daughter gets up. The struggle is real!

Prior to my surgery, all the post-op patients in my support group talked about how they immediately had so much energy. Yeah. I got none of that. [emoji849] I nap almost every day after work and sleep 12-16 hours on my days off.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
