I am 57 yrs old and 5 weeks post op and have just started soft foods.

I am finding that lately, I am very fatigued. I sleep well at night, eat my Proteins, drink my Water, take my Vitamins, and so forth, but I still get extremely tired even though I am not doing much more than walking.

Has anybody else had this experience? Any ideas about how to relieve the fatigue and boost my energy?

Thanks!

Hi. I'm about 11 weeks out. At 5 weeks I was back to work but it was pretty common to fall asleep on the couch after work/before bed. It does get better. I want to say the last 2 - 3 weeks I've had a lot more energy (even more than pre-surgery).

@amboyle728 I’m right behind you. I’m 3 weeks post op and soooo tired still. I’ll have a couple of good days and then a down day or two. The past two days I had more energy and then all of a sudden today, it left me. I just napped for about 3 hours and want to go back to sleep or at least not get off the couch.
I hope our energy comes back soon. You’ll probably get yours back before me since you’re a couple of weeks ahead.

Absolutely - only now at three months post-op has much of my normal level of energy returned - my calorie intake now averages 950-1150 per day and am still steadily losing weight. I'm able to work in my garden and take longer walks on the beach. My thoughts are it's a combination of very low calorie intake and recovering from surgery that causes the fatigue. Also make sure you're not anemic.

Don't worry, it came back for me and I'd expect you'll be feeling capable of doing a normal level of activities in time. Good luck!

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
