Weight more now than before surgery



Recommended Posts

I weight about 10 pounds more today than the day of my RNY (which was Tuesday). How is this possible? Is it all retained Fluid from having an IV and fluids after surgery?

Yes, lots of Fluid retention. It will go away within a couple days.

I had heard about this phenomenon, so I am waiting until my follow up appointment with the nutritionist 11 days after the surgery. This post op is hard enough without seeing the scale go UP!

Fluids and gas. They upfloat your stomach during surgery.

Yes. I had my surgery the Monday before you; I also weighed more and looked huge; I am now down about 6 pounds from my weight the day of surgery. I had some trouble getting the bowels going, and had to take Miralax, but once that started and I kept drinking the clear fluids the weight has started to drop off.

      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!

      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.
