You are four days out, you are likely feeling weak because of lack of calories and possible a little dehydrated, and you are still healing.

Some people lack energy for a number of weeks. Initially do your best to get your fluids in as well as some Protein.

it's pretty common after any major surgery, and especially this one since your calorie intake is so low. It'll probably last a few weeks, but will get gradually get better and better....

Like STLoser - I was weak for at least 3 weeks too, but it will go away in time. I've never been more tired in my life and just getting up to go to the bathroom was laboring.

After my surgery I was OK energy wise for the first week, but weeks 2-4 I was exhausted. I had surgery on a Thursday, came home on Saturday. Took the next week off and went back to work, desk job, the next Monday. I would work 8 hours and then usually go to bed about 8 or 9 pm. It does get better. You won't be able to get enough calories in the first few weeks to get any where near what you need and your body with be in a starvation state. It will adjust and you will heal and you will be able to get more Protein in. Follow you program and get you protein in first along with the Water needed. At almost 9 months post-op I have more energy than I have ever had.
