Hey all -

Just wanted to reach out because I am having a difficult day. I've cried three times and just feeling down. I am three weeks Post OP and I am surprised it has taken this long for me to feel some of the effects. I miss food. Not in the way of feeling full or having some emotional need - I just simply miss the taste of food. The point I am at in my diet - I can only have canned/packaged tuna or scrambled eggs.. along with the softer foods from the previous weeks. I opened a pack of the tuna today and it smelled horrendous. I just started sobbing and my wife said to throw it away... we'd get the kind I did like at the store in a bit.

Is it just me or have any of you felt like this? I just feel like a ball of emotions the last two days.

Hiya! I felt the same way right after my surgery. Your hormones are changing a lot and definitely creates emotions you would normally be able to control. It doesn’t last too long so don’t worry. The first couple of months are hard to get used to but it definitely eases once you enter your third month. You made a huge decision and there will be an adjustment period. Don’t worry too much, you’ve got this! and it’s wonderful that your wife is so supportive. Having someone to help you during this time, especially when feeling fragile, is a gift. It’ll get better!

I had a bad day yesterday and I feel much better today. I am 10 days post and think we will continue to have good and bad days until we get used to all of this. We will get through this together. I am glad I found my bariatric family so we can support each other.

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about

        CongratulationsI’m six days post it hasn’t been the easiest but I think I’m definitely saving my life and I swear I cry at least once every two hours but sweetheart you will be fine there’s also a couple things that I would like to make sure that you have before your surgery if that’s OK

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
