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!

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
