So I'm officially 1 month post op today my pain is pretty much gone at this point.However for almost the past 2 weeks my weight has been bouncing back and forth between 279&281lbs I have seen alot of people say there is no such as a stall this early on so I'm just wondering what It could be and what I have to do to change it.I'm really good at drinking the 64oz of Water per day the only thing I struggle with is those nasty Protein Shakes they make me feel nauseous.I drink the premier ones they tasted so much better before surgery...but anywho any advice is appreciated.

You were lied to. The three weeks stall is infamous.

What can you do? Be patient. That's it.

Anyone who says that is a liar or a fool (or some combination of the two).

I'm one month today and have been seeing a VERY incremental loss over the past two weeks (<5lbs over 2 weeks), a lot of little up-and-down flutters. Annoying but not the end of the world - I'm not going to worry until my surgeon starts worrying.

Remember ,you have put your body through a lot. It is spending a lot of time trying to figure out what the hell you did to it. You will start to lose again. Give it time to sort out what is going on.

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
