Covid Positive + 1.5 months Post Op Sleeve!



Recommended Posts

Oh jeez! 🙄 Life right now could have not been further off track for me. Here is the sum of all that's happened in a week!

1. I lost my 2-year Marketing Specialist job here in Dubai, United Arab Emirates - my role due to COVID is REDUNDANT and no longer required as APPRENTLY they don't have enough $$$ - but i know the whole story at the back end and who said what and all the politics.

2. I was on a weight-loss stall which FINALLY got over but then ^^^ that happened

3. I started feeling sick especially because i started vomiting up at least once a day

4. WHICH LED TO ME GETTING COVID 19 because HEY! us bariatric pals don't have a good immune system!

So post op almost 2 months and IM SUPER SICK! i have Asthma as well. I have alllll the covid symptoms you can think of and I'm isolated in my home.

Thankfully all my close contacts are fine but MAN O MAN does covid suck more when u CAN'T EAT ANYTHING! All I want is a big ass burger and a milkshake or SOME SORT OF SAVORY food item but i can't even keep down Protein let alone SOUP! It's been horrible - my nutritionist said i should just try to EAT or DRINK whatever i can at this moment. But
BUT! there is a brighter yet a little worrying side. Ive lost about 3kgs! in 3 days. (sorta happy in a selfish way) but i have such a strong feeling ill gain it back as soon as I'm covid free.

but hey! 1.5 months and I've lost nearly 20 kgs! WOOT WOOT! haha.. trying to not die between these 4 walls so I'm trying to look at the brighter side. However every inch of my body hurts as i cough up a storm.

Is anyone in a situation like me? I hope not but if u are - let's relate?

Btw i posted an image here pre-op in my first post ever id like to post it again next to a recent one -> could use the motivation to stay breathing :P

1. Me at 130kgs 2. Me at 116 kgs same dress

Sorry you feeling so bad, hope you are able to recover quickly. Keep pushing the liquids. Remember, small sips but even if you are not able to eat, you need to take in as much Fluid as you can. BTW you look great, keep up the hard work and feel better soon!
