I feel the same way... I don't know if I regret this or not.

Just remember this is only a phase and isn’t forever! It’s my new mantra and it’s helped a ton!

So after having severe fatigue, today I have all sorts of energy, walked around the block, vacuumed my house. I’m feeling a burst of energy. Did this happen to anyone else? I’m 8 days post op, sleeve.

@MorganF, I was having the same problem but I had to quit the Protein Shakes and it stopped. I’m drinking a homemade strained Soup and going to find other ways to get the Protein in. I never could drink them even before surgery so I think all the artificial stuff makes me sick and causes disarray. Not sure if that’s your case but was mine.

18 days post op and on puree/soft foods...I have been measuring and trying to gauge how much I can eat but rather than just feeling full when I'm full... I feel like I'm going to explode! Maybe I need to slow down in eating so I can feel full before the "almost can't keep it down" feeling. Anyone have similar experience or suggestions?

Yes, I’ve had that experience as well. Some days even measuring doesn’t matter - it depends on what it is that I’m eating. I’ve started to only eat about 2/3 of what I’ve measured out. Then I wait about 5-10 mins, and if I don’t get that “I’ve eaten too much” feeling, I’ll eat the rest. Sometimes I don’t bother eating the rest even if I’m not full, but I try to if it’s rich in Protein.

Thanks@ResaRoo
I'm glad I'm not alone in that! I'm going to slow way down and maybe even cut back further.

I'm 12 days out been doing pretty good but I woke up in the middle of the night with a pain in the middle of my chest. Very uncomfortable and hard to go back to sleep. Was pretty nauseous all day today.

Hello! I had my RNYGB Feb. 13. I am progressing well. My little incisions are healed. I am having a hard time with the taste if anything sweet. Ugh. Also getting my Vitamins down without gagging is a challenge. For some reason the Protein Powder is a challenge so I have been getting most of my Protein with the special milks and Greek yogurt smoothies. I also found pureeing légume Soups worked great for me, though I am getting tired of them. I am down 30 lbs today since January 29, and am freezing all the time, especially my hands and feet. I sleep with fuzzy socks now! Lol

I find I’m cold most of the time now, too. Especially just after eating.

I had surgery 2/19. I’m also cold all the time when I used to be the opposite. Back to work for me on 3/13. Hoping I’m ready!

Ya the Protein Shakes have been hard for me. Greek yogurt goes down easy. Try those Protein isolate drinks that are more like juice. Isopure and syntax nectar. Those have been going to easy for me.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
