ESG 4 weeks post-op and weight stall



Recommended Posts

Hello :) I've been following this message board for a while now, but never gathered the courage to participate :blush:

I'm now a month post-op and I hate to admit that I started eating real food (well, almost) half way through my soft/pureed food phase. I got some minor pains, but was very manageable. I thought if i puree it in my mouth, then it'd be ok lol but obviously it wasn't.

So, anyway... my weight has stopped going down at half of week 3... nothing. Is it because I haven't followed the rules? I'm feeling pretty down... and i'm so ashamed to go to my doctor and let him know that I haven't followed the diet I should've been following.

Anyone had a case similar to mine? how did you get past this?

Thank you so much in advance, any comments are welcome :)

Hi there, unfortunately the ESG subforum isn't all that active at the moment.

You may get a response if you leverage off one of the other existing threads, and quote some of the more experienced ESGers. If their settings allow they will receive an email with your post, and they may return to reply.

Failing that, there is a Facebook page (ESG USA page) that is a bit more active than here, if you are concerned about privacy with your fb, you could create new profile with an alias, that's want I did.

Hello Yara. I am having my ESG on Aug 24th. Although I don't have a shared experience with you I just want to let you know that everything I have read says the 3-4 week stall is real and can be a real mind bender. Please don't beat yourself up for a few minor slip ups. We're all human and your journey has just begun. A stall is called a stall because it's temporary. You got this.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        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.
