When Did YOUR Energy Come Back?



Recommended Posts

When did you start feeling more energy after the sleeve? I'm looking forward to the new energy level everyone enjoys after WLS. I'm 3 weeks post op, so still recovering, but I can't wait to run. Will I have the energy for this in 6 weeks? I'm still tired during the day and of course after work.

After about 48 hours my energy was pretty much back to normal. Went back to the gym to do cardio today (2 weeks out) and was able to push just about as hard as I did the day before surgery. That said everyone is different and if you've had pain that's one he'll of an energy killer.

I am three weeks out today and I too am feeling low energy. I am fairly sure it is the ultra low calorie diet, so I guess it wont get much better until I move on to puree in about 9 days, then softs sometime after that. Under 500 cal per day is not a lot of gas in the tank.

My energy came back fully at about 4-5 weeks. I just had my 6 week check up and given permission for light core work and light running. He said to slow down if I am sore.

I’ve had RNY and I’m about 3 days shy of 3 weeks out. I am starting to worry because I currently still get very tired just doing simple things like walking and when I stand up, I get a little dizzy, my heart rate also goes a little high when I do anything even remotely strenuous. I am eating about 600 calories a day, getting in 48-64 ounces of Fluid and around 60 grams of Protein. I feel like I shouldn’t be feeling this crappy still. On my 3rd post op day I was readmitted to the hospital for 4 nights because my body went into diabetic ketoacidosis (I’ve had type one diabetes for the majority of my life), so I’m beginning to worry it’s happening again. Does anyone else feel this way, or felt this way around the same time as me? Thanks in advance.

Add me to the 4-5 weeks category. And I didn’t increase my calories either, it was just the stage of recovery.

I am almost 4 weeks out and also feel very weak and dizzy. Not much energy here at all.

This is so great to hear. Thank you everybody for posting. I'll be 4 weeks post on Wednesday. Despite not feeling energetic, I have this desire to work out. I walked my dogs longer tonight. I feels so good. I think my 25 lb weight loss is actually making it easier for me to move. This is truly incredible. I hope this lasts and is not just some weird spot I'm in. LOL

@Fantasstik, how are you feeling today? Did things get any better? Are you eating puree yet?

Nikki, I just started feeling more like myself this week ...which is week 4 for me. I know that seems a long way off right now, but don't worry, it's coming and you will be feelin' better.

Mine was back to 100% at six weeks I'd say. I started exercising at 5 weeks though. I also increased my calories from 300-400 a day to 500-600, which I think helped. I didn't do this intentionally but actual food has more calories than liquids. I was consuming more by this stage in the food progression.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
