I am cassey new here. I had a revision Sleeve to GB. My Sleeve was in 2010 and my GB was 11/30/2020.

I am out of breath alot and went to get checked out in ER today. They said I have no clots and I am happy about that.

I cant eat or drink much and so I am not getting all the fluids needed. I really hope this gets better. I am not sure if the fact I lost 19 pounds since surgery has anything to do with my symptoms. I just need some support and need to know that I will feel better soon.

And I have experienced dumping I think and that is no fun either, and that sometimes makes me not want to drink or eat.

Hi Cassey, Being out of breath and problems drinking your fluids at a few weeks out is very normal. Dehydration is probably the number one reason for er visits (I had that scare at around 3 weeks out too) so just keep chugging at it. I think the feeling of being normal happened only a few weeks ago with myself and I am now close to 4 months out. I recently started a new job at a factory with some lifting all night and even now on these nights, I find myself getting fatigued a bit still from the surgery. However, this all does eventually pass and get easier.

Is your Dr following up with you? You should be able to sit down with that person to address the concerns you are having but they are normal. If you can get a propel water bottle or one with a very small 'sippy cup' end, it can really help a lot. Just try to keep on drinking slowly and getting it down as much as you can. Some days I still only hit around 50 oz and others I can get more then the 64 oz but it's easier now then what it was. I also work overnight so everything is a little wonky there.

So sorry for the dumping syndrome. If you can get in with your NUT and Doc, it would be helpful to just get your concerns out there but from this end, it seems you are pretty normal in how you are feeling. Soon enough you'll start to get more normalized and feel some real benefits from the surgery-hang in there!
