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.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
