Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum, and I am two weeks post-op. After surgery, I feel like my surgeon lacks the support I need. So, if I have a question I kind of refrain from asking him. So I thought I would ask on here.

Q: I am almost 3 weeks post op, and I stop losing weight. The day of surgery my weight was 251 and a week later I was 240. Now, my weight is just sitting at 241 no movement. I drink Water and broth mostly. I do Protein Shakes as well. Anyone else experience this?

I’m only two weeks out, but from reading these forums, it seems that nearly everyone experiences a stall at about the three week mark.

Okay. I thought I was going crazy, because I barley eat now. So why no weight loss?

Also, do you feel like food is stuck on your throat and won't go down and you can't bring it up?

How do you get out of it?

Just follow your plan. It will kick in.

three-week stall. If you search this site, you'll find something like 17,000 posts on it (and no, I am NOT kidding). It happens to almost everyone. Just stick to your plan, stay off the scale for a few days, and it'll eventually break (lasts 1-3 weeks, usually) and you'll be on your way again.

If it feels stuck, you have to just wait it out if you can't puke. You might try taking a walk, do not lie down it will turn into acid reflux.

Aren't you still on soft foods at this stage? You likely took that one too many last bites, we all have done it. You learn quickly to eat very slowly and stop after 4 bites and wait 5 minutes or more, then see if you are full at that point before taking more.

I am feeling the same way!!!
I lost 8lbs in the first 4 days after surgery… then in the last 11 days I’ve only lost 2lb…

I was expecting it to drop more.. I spoke to my dietician and she said I’m doing really well with Protein (60g) a day and at about 1800-2000ml of Fluid a day. I’ve started walking and using my exercise bike more..

I really hope the stall doesn’t last long it’s disheartening as it makes you feel it was all a waste of time (and for me lots of money) 😞

You say 3 week stall, but I’ve stalled since week 1….

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
