Weight gain and ten days away from four months post gastric bypass



Recommended Posts

Last week I weighed in at 227lbs. Yesterday at the hospital they said I was 224.9lbs. I went home after my endoscopy yesterday and weighed myself it said 233lbs. I weight myself today and my scale says 236.8lbs. I’m just short of four months post gastric bypass has anyone else had this issue? I don’t really eat food to where it’ll make me gain weight. Throughout today I ate one whole pickle one egg and four oz of chicken. I don’t understand why I’m gaining weight.

You just had surgery. I would say most likely say you are filled with fluids they pump you full of them and maybe inflammation. I would think it will be gone in a couple days.

I didn’t even think about them pumping me with fluids. I guess in my head it was just an endoscopy so I didn’t think they did. But I feel stupid now 😂 thank you I really appreciate it!! Makes me feel better.

they wouldn't pump you with fluids for an endoscopy. Not sure what the problem is - is your scale on the fritz? Are you weighing/measuring and tracking what you eat? If your period due?

It doesn’t look like it. It’s only maybe five years old but in great condition. Maybe my hubby dropped it. I’ll probably just go get a new one to see.

Ended up being a reaction to the anesthesia it made to to where my body wouldn’t release any water.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
