I am.in my 3rd week and I too become easily fatigued to the point where I need to sit & rest.

I like to be busy and I am surprised how long this has taken to get back to 60% let alone 100%.

Same boat I fell asleep at 750 last night and I’m usually a night owl.

I don’t know if I’m posting this in the correct spot. Surgery aug 16th I’ve lost only 7lbs in almost 4 weeks. Preop diet I lost 14 lbs in 3 weeks. I’m following diet to the letter. I’m walking 30 min almost every day. Has this happened to anyone else. I’m starting to worry that it didn’t work… surgeon says it’s fine. Only problem is I can’t seem to get all the Water in consistently. Could that be it?

You can’t really expect to lose the same amount as you did on the pre-op diet because the pre-op diet is designed to make you lose weight really fast. In 16 days I lost 15 pounds on pre op diet and then I didn’t lose but about 10 pounds the month following surgery.

Not sure exactly, but my doctor says you can’t worry about wait loss in the first 6 weeks since your body is still healing. I lost 10the first week and then just stalled for two weeks after. I also head some things about too much exercise too soon isn’t good since it could slow down the metabolism and make you more hungry. Not sure on this stuff so you probably want to check back with your doctors or due some more research. I’m just saying I don’t think it is anything to worry about and give yourself time to heal.

Oh no! I would be so upset if I were you! I guess just remember that the weight is coming off, just much more slowly than expected. On the bright side, perhaps you won’t experience the sagging skin that a rapid weight loss can cause?

I would ask why this is? My diet is pretty much the same now as it was pre-surgery, I am ingesting less than 800 calories in a day. I am losing about the same amount of weight now as pre-surgery. Am I eating too little? I am 9 days out and have lost 10 pounds since surgery

I lost 17 lbs pre surgery ( 14 days ) and have lost 17 lbs since surgery ( 16 Days ).

I have hit my Protein grams everyday but calories are between 700-1000 for the past 5 Days but it is my chronic fatigue that has me frustrated.

I can barely walk for 30 minutes before I need to rest for an hour.

I guess I should have said not everyone can expect to lose the same. At least that’s what the NP at my clinic said about me and their patients statistics on their pre op diet. (When I was Disappointed that I wasn’t losing more). Then again everyones pre op diet is a little different so I guess weight loss on it will vary as well. I know I didn’t lose nearly as much.

Thanks guys for encouragement. Is anyone else not tolerating veggies that are cooked to death and chopped tiny? So far mashed cauliflower is the only one to stay down consistently. I don’t think I’m eating too fast. Any tricks or best veggies?

I have only tried spinach - cooked in my scrambled egg. I buy fresh, freeze it immediately, and crumble up into tiny pieces so it blends in well. I plan to try severely mashed green Beans next.

Did you guys have a hernia repair also? My nurse in the hospital said most patients who had a hernia repair complained about pain in their upper back. I had it pretty bad in my upper back for the first couple days.

Did your doctor not write you out on short term disability? I’m 3 weeks post op and today has not been a good day at all! Body is not wanting no food and barely fluids! No way I could have done a day of work!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
