Had surgery Dec. 10th RNY, today I decided to go to Walmart and pick up a small mixer that puree food as well, my daughter pushed the buggy and loaded items into cart but I was plum wore out once we got home, I am talking all Vitamins without difficulty and on full liquid diet, getting in 3 Unjury Protein Shakes a day, 1 1/2 8oz cups of chicken broth a day! Should I be doing anything different or just slow my roll? Had to take a couple Aleve!

Congratulations on your surgery! My only advice would be to stay hydrated.

Your surgery is so recent....yes, your body is still healing and that's why you're tired. I'm about three weeks out and still get tired sometimes.

Rest, stay hydrated and keep doing what you're doing. Also, rest...😉

WOW!! You took a trip early. One week after my surgery I went to the market, pushed an empty cart and was exhausted. I am impressed! Yes, your energy will be low; major surgery, and eating and drinking next to nothing.

so, it took me six weeks to get up to the Water levels I needed. So, try sipping and ounce of water every 5 minutes. Then when you have Liquid Protein, its still sip, sip, sip, and walk, and sleep.

Down the line, think about getting an Instant Pot, a Vitamix Blender, and a air fryer. They really help with making multiple, healthy, fun bariatric meals.

Keep up the great job your are doing. Don't push yourself, you need to heal. :)

its absolutely normal to feel that way, your body is in shock right now because it doesnt have the same intake of calories and carbs like you were before. I slept on and off most of the time the first 3 weeks . Its a normal adjustment , sometimes even walking around the house had me exhausted before. totally normal!

Aleve is an NSAID. We're not supposed to take those.

Thank you for your response but I was advised by my physician I could!

@DeadSpaceGrave, yes absolutely walking around the house gets me too! I think I am just going to slow it down! Thank you so much!

@DrBrianG, thank you so much you are absolutely right, I had a major surgery and need to slow down and just relax and let my body heal, I have to say my husband wasnt happy about it! I appreciate also the information on the kitchen appliances I want an air fryer and hope it is ine of my Christmas gifts! Thank you again!

I am 3 weeks out and feel exactly the same. Even the small stuff wears me out. We have to give ourselves time to recover from major surgery. It will get easier with time.

@Losingit2018, yes we got this with the help of our Bariatricpal family, I will take it easy and let my hubby or family do the shopping without me until I get better!

That is what I have done. I have a Walmart neighborhood market close by. I go online to place my order and husband goes to pick it up.

I did the same thing too 5 days postop. Lol I was by myself and leaned on the basket plus sat in the shoe department for 15 minutes before I could go on. My daughter asked me good if I wanted her to go to the store but nooooo, I told her. I need to walk :lol::lol::lol: I was so exhausted and in pain I popped my tylenol 4 and went to sleep after I got home. I let my girls bring the groceries in and put them up. You did good but I would continue to take it slow. That was a lesson learned for me.

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
