Did you get gastric bypass in June?



Recommended Posts

HELP! I recently had gastric bypass, 6/16 to be exact. It's been 10 days and I have only lost 10 lbs [emoji35] is this normal? How much weight have you lost so far?

Btw I had my 1st bowel-movement today for the first time since surgery, I feel like I should take magnesium citrate to get cleaned out..... but I'm just scared- I honestly don't want to make things worse.

I lost 16 lbs the entire first *month*. So yes, it's normal. Unless you're the size of someone on My 600 lb Life, you'll likely lose 15-25 lbs the first month. There are some who lose more than that, but they're the exception. You're doing just fine.

I lost 8 lbs in 2 weeks and my doctor said that was good so 10# in 10 days is fantastic.
