Bad day



Recommended Posts

Just need to vent. I am about 1.5 weeks out of gastric bypass. Things have been going quite well. Today I had a terrible day at work and went back to eating like before. Of course the difference now is “over-eating” is maybe eating a cup vs 1/4 cup. However, my stomach is killing me and I feel so sick. And disappointed with myself.

I know everyone on the forum says people should not complain about loss not coming fast or stalls. And I know I am literally 1.5 weeks out from surgery. But I have lost nothing. Same weight today as the day of surgery. You wait for months, go through specific diet, pain of surgery. I did go up after surgery and that is all gone now- but I keep hearing about people losing 10 pounds first week and I’m starting to feel like I did this for nothing. I was already doing weight watchers and trying to eat healthy and exercise. Will my results be any different if I had just kept doing that? Losing 1-2 pounds per week?

I try to be upbeat most of the time and think positively, but this day has just gotten to me. Just a bad work day which is killing my self confidence and making me feel useless.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Thanks for listening.

I gained 8 lbs of Water weight in the hospital. They have pumped you full of fluids in case you could not drink much after surgery. Dont worry it wil come off quickly in the next week or so.

I didn’t lose for the first at least two weeks. Your body is healing and focused on that, not focused on losing weight. No
More weighing yourself for a bit

I completely understand, I am just over a month out and having lost jack sh*t. Everyone said your healing, it wasn't that, then it's Water weight. It wasn't that. Then I was told well your weight fluctuates, this is very true, but no in my case it was gain. 3 lbs in fact and its taken another week of extreme cardio just to loose 2 of the 3 lbs. I gained eating exactly whats on the menu the dietitian gave me. So finally I am back down to where I started, I wake up this morning and of course another 2 lbs gained. My gain wasn't anything other than gain, I don't know why or how, but it wasn't healing, or water, or constipation. Moral of the story is hide your scale because it will make you crazy and take it easy because beating yourself doesn't work either. Just take one day at a time, it's all we can do.

Hope by now all the frowns have turned upside down, if not we are still here for you Baby!
Woke up myself with upper abdominal/stomal pain. Is it the 5 ulcers romping and stomping? Can I drown their pain if I start drinking Fluid in? Am. I actually hungry? If I am, will anything stay down or is this a precursor to a pukey day again? I try to remember days when I woke up feeling good. Another poster stated " Don't Force Emesis" but what when it seem inevitable? How much can it be stifled?

Glad I saw this - I was frustrated with my own stall from 3 days after surgery. Have you girls progressed?

      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.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
