Hi, I opened up this forum because maybe I can find someone here who understands or probably been through the same. Before my WLS i was an extremely happy person. After my WLS i am extremely unmotivated, sad, I tend to have out burst, I cant seem to socialize, at times a bit bitter, and lets not forget EXTREMELY INSECURE. I kept hoping as months passed it would get better but it hasn't its probably worst. I began seeking help and going to therapy 2 weeks ago, I just want to know if anyone else felt like this and how they dealt with it and how long does this feeling last. Thank you

I definitely felt that way! Now I had mental health challenges pre surgery. I am bi-polar but have been stabilized for years on medication. Post surgery I was miserable for several months, not totally out of it but definitely better. Your body goes through such enormous changes I was snappy impatient sad angry Regretful you name it. My surgery was a few weeks after yours. I still struggle my doctors says it's hormnes readjusting. Hang in there, it will get better!

      This virus is starting to get to me.  I am still doing my exercise (running and walking the dog and strength training but I am finding that I am snacking more, I don't like this!!  
      Is this happening to anyone else? What are you doing to combat it?

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance
