You're weak and dizzy because your calorie intake is way lower than you're used to. Your stomach is swollen from surgery still. Each day will get easier, just try to remember to take tiny sips throughout the day so you stay hydrated.

Just try to hang in there. Each and every day it gets a little easier. Some of us have a slower recovery than others but you will get there. Just take lots of tiny- tiny sips.

Hi, I felt like that, but read on here that it could be lack of Protein, I got some great Protein Shakes off Amazon that contains 40g , honest I feel so much better now, 1 first thing in the morning and one mid afternoon, my dizziness, light head, and tiredness has 95% gone

Hang in there. Don't think how you feel now is going to be your long-term experience. The first couple of weeks were rough for me too, but it gets better quickly. Hugs! 🤗

Thanks guys just come home from being discharged feom hospital as I needed IV fluids, IV Vitamin B, and being heavily constipated didnt help. I have been taking 60g Protein each day woth milk 3 times a day. But I gues I was only really managing 600 mls flui a day. I bought Huel High Protein which i got fed up off. And tried to make salmon broccoli Soup and obviously was too early to blend and try some so i vomited n hence Constipation and dehydration on top of that.

That first week can be really challenging. You are so limited with what you can have, and even what you can have can be difficult to get down. As others have said, it gets easier. I am little over a month out and just started the modified regular diet, it is still tricky to get used to this new way of eating, but by far much easier than those first few weeks. Once you start getting some of the purées & soft foods in, you should start to get more energy. It will take time to heal & get used to your new stomach. I hope you start feeling better soon!

      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.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
