I would call the doctor if pain is getting worse. I have not heard anyone say pain got worse.

Definitely call your surgeon if it's gotten worse. Personally I haven't had any pain at all, but worsening pain is a concern.

Very careful with pain after so many days as it could be something else. A call to surgeon’s office would not hurt.

I called 2x yesterday they told me it’s normal to be feeling pain but I’m gonna call again today since the nurse is in office and explain in detail. I did overdue it on Tuesday and yesterday I had a terrible day pushing from a BM situation so it could be both those things. I haven’t had to take my pain meds today but walking around is hard.

Update:went to the ER and everything is fine they did a cat scan and bloodwork. Nothing abnormal. Just said I have to work through the pain.

Glad to hear it's nothing serious. I started taking a fiber supplement (Metamucil) once a day to help with the BM, it helps greatly, especially at first when Protein is pretty much all we're eating.

Hi I am very new to this forum. I had my gastric sleeve done on 15/apr/21

pre op weight :299 lbs

Current. Weight : 272 lbs.

weight loss 27 lbs

somehow I feel my weight loss is not as much as others who had surgery near when I had mine. The whole of last week I have lost less than 1 lb :(

Is anyone facing such an issue ? I am feeling so low now

27 lbs is a lot, it’s tremendous, your body is in shock and getting used to its new system. Give your self a break. Almost 30 lbs in less than a month !

I think that is amazing.

Thank you ! I am desperately hoping that my body wouldn’t just give up ... I had a chat with my dietitian yesterday and she was very encouraging too. Can’t believe the scales are not budging for the past 7 days ...

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
