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.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
