My thoughts exactly. I refused to do an IUD. I told my husband that I'd rather go a year without sex. We've had fertility issues for the last 5 years. Part of the reason I did this surgery is to get pregnant, but not before the 12 months. But in January of 2019, no matter where I am at in the weight loss track, I will be on the baby train. I've waited long enough.

I have actually like the NuvaRing. I have PCOS as well, so I'm not sure if it is helping with cysts.

Yea same reason why I had WLS as well, to help improve my chances.

Glad to know you like the nuva ring, so I may try it. Wishing you all the luck on the baby train for 2019!!!

This isn't just, "I'm a little tired today", this is a "I probably shouldn't drive my car home from work tired". I had my Vitamin levels checked at 3 months post op, which was just over a month ago. Everything was within normal ranges. Could something have changed in that short period of time?

So I was feeling exhausted and B12 injections resolved it completely. But it was a different type of exhaustion. I wasn't tired, it was taking out the trash cans and I had to sit down on my porch to not pass out and I need to take breaks doing my hair and make up, because I'm getting too shaky type of exhaustion. So this doesn't seem like a B12 issue at least.

I wanted to give you guys an update. I still don't have much of an answer. I called my surgeon's office who reluctantly is going to mail me a few lab orders to retest my Iron, Vitamin D, and Hemoglobin. However, they don't really think that the problem is in my levels. I can't get in to see my primary doctor until the end of this month. So I'm just stuck practically falling asleep in non-active settings. I'm completely fine if I'm up moving or working on something. The second I sit down, WHAM. I feel like a wave of sleepiness overcomes me.

I'm glad they're going to check you out. I've been worried. ((HUGS))

Thank you!

I hope they find the cause soon, and you’re back to your energetic self soon.

being constantly exhausted is exhausting in itself! I had a similar issue, simple blood test found it was a Vitamin D and Calcium deficiency. Mine turned out to be hypathoroidism and easily resolved. Now I feel great.

I actually had some issues like that last year, well before my surgery. I never found a cause, though perhaps it was from my hormones being out of whack because I was on medication for depression and anxiety. When I was moving around I was ok, but sitting staring at a screen, sitting in a meeting or even sitting on the loo it was a massive struggle to keep my eyes open. I hope you find the cause soon.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
