I had GB on Thursday (4/18) and now that I’m home, I’ve gained the weight back I loss during the clear liquid stage. I’m assuming it has something to do with the swelling and all the fluids I was given in the hospital. However, is that normal or should I be concerned?

Normal. I gained almost 10 pounds of Fluid while in the hospital!! It took me about 6 days to lose it and get back to my surgery weight. Hang in there!! Congrats on your surgery!

it's the fluids they give you in the hospital. I've gained up to 10 lbs after a surgery because of those. It'll be gone in a few days.

If you really think about it, and I’m not being sarcastic, you couldn’t physically gain 5 pounds of fat in a week right? So it had to be Fluid. Every person who panics about weight gain after surgery needs to remember that it’s not possible to gain fat if you’re not eating and if it’s that rapid (5-10 lbs in a week)

It's perfectly normal, it's just the swelling and fluids from the hospital. Don't weigh yourself for two weeks and then you'll see a big drop.

Be sure to take you measurements. I finally got to surgery day weight day 8 post-op, but I had lost two inches at the waist and hips.
