Hi all,

I am 6 weeks post op and have lost 25 pounds. I find I have very low energy by mid morning and this lasts until around 4 pm. I am taking my Vitamins and Iron religiously, eating the right foods and making sure I have my required Protein. I think I may be losing too fast, considering I am a low BMI (33) when I started. I wanted to start back at the gym by week 6 but all I want to do right now is curl up in bed and sleep. Has anyone else gone through this?

You are still pretty recently post-op. You may feel better, but your body is still working to heal on less resources.

Be patient with yourself. Do what you can, don't do what you can't. It will get better.

Good luck,

Tek

I think it took a couple of months before my energy returned -

I took 2 naps a day for the first month, then 1 nap a day for the next month or so! Give it a little more time. Good luck!!

Thank you. I was worried I was doing something wrong.

Your body will tell you what it needs. You just have to listen to it.

This week I am 3 months since surgery and still have some days with low energy. I spoke with one of the nurse case managers this week, she called for a check in. I told her about it and she said it is exactly what everyone here said. The body is still healing and not a lot of food intake will take our bodies sometimes a while to adjust to. Some people take longer. I am fine with this as I am very pleased with the loss of weight.

Thank you for responding. I'm glad you checked with your nurse. I was going to d that too.
