Post op feelings



Recommended Posts

What are you consuming at the moment? Did your surgeon or dietician provide you with a post op food plan/timelines? Do you have a post op program with follow ups with them?

I had my sleeve 3 weeks ago but I don’t feel well , I have no energy . Did anyone experience that? Also what can I eat now

you will probably feel tired because after surgery we are in a calorie deficit and calories give us energy. As far as purees go i got a magic bullet blender )nutribullet be fine too) and u just make a simple egg salad (egg n mayo) or chicken salad (chicken mayo) and put it in there and blend it til mush. I thought about trying normal things like vienna sausage but hadnt got around to it before I was moved to soft foods. you might also be able to use one of those online sites to check your blood for Vitamin deficiencies. There is a forum somewhere here for people who went to Mexico that may have some tips too

Hi! Thats what you can do during the puree phase of your diet. What diet phase are you in? I might have one of those infusions myself lol let me know how it went 🌝

Here are my instructions...although post-op instructions vary widely, this will give you an idea of what you can eat:

most of us are on pureed food by then. I couldn't stomach the idea of eating baby food (although that was an option for us), but you can puree a variety of things. Check the blog "The World According to Eggface" for ideas. She's a long-time vet and loves cooking. She has a lot of recipes on her site for all stages.

I'm almost 2 weeks post-op and I'm feeling the same with energy levels. I think it's the lack of calories? So I'm forcing myself to eat the SF-jello and puddings for calories. My main meals are protein-based: pureed chicken, fish, hard-boiled eggs, Soups, broths. I'm almost starting to think this is normal right now.

I was pretty tired for the first month - maybe two. I think it's a combination of the surgery (any surgery can zap you for awhile) and, as you said, the low calorie intake.
