Bad Day With Food and Tiredness



Recommended Posts

Last week, I was so full of energy and pep and had so much energy that I couldn't sleep at night. This week, I am so very tired, even though I am sleeping at night. I don't know if it's because I walked two miles yesterday but today, I am so tired, taking a nap is all I can think of. I am hitting my Protein and Water goals (fully, 70+g of protein and around 78-80 oz of water) and am taking my Vitamins. However, still tired. Also, everything, and I mean everything that I am eating is hitting wrong in my pouch and making me feel just blah. I am not sure what is going on. Has anyone else had "good" days and then a "bad" day with food before? I've not had anything sit wrong in my pouch before and now, water, tea, protein, etc. is just making me feel like I have a rock in my stomach that is sitting there.

Both fatigue and food not sitting right in your pouch are very common in the first couple months after surgery!! I took naps daily until I was about 3 months out! Also got the foamies quite a few times too.

Hang in there, and with time, it will all get better and your energy will come back!! Best of luck to you!!

Your tummy is a bit like a petulant child in the beginning. Some days it happily plays then the next it’s throwing tantrums. Something you’d been eating successfully suddenly makes you feel unwell or sits like a lump in your tummy. Something you enjoy eating suddenly tastes disgusting.

It does settle just give it time. Your body’s been through a lot with the surgery & reduced calories so I guess it’s understandable that it’s sensitive.

Oh yeah the tiredness. Thankfully that improves too. Just enjoy having nana naps. I loved my afternoon doze on the couch.
