Actually no as you lose the weight you will be healthier so my vote is NO- Get really good with the Vitamins and minerals - Do blood work up and keep your levels perfect

Which surgery are you getting?

Bypass could make you more tired. What with the malabsorption and dumping.

The sleeve doesn't cause malabsoption or dumping.

I'm not sure that's true. People experience tiredness after all surgeries - I did after my plastic surgery as well. Yes - the lower calories can amplify that, but that happens with the sleeve as well.

also, less than half of bypass patients dump. And that can be controlled by limiting or avoiding sugar.

I believe it will at first. I'm two weeks out and just starting to feel more energy. As you can consume more calories and as you heal, energy comes back. But if you don't have any energy to begin with, I honestly don't know how you'll do. As the weight comes off and you can do more things you may find it comes back. Good luck to you!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
