I got pretty tired the first couple of weeks too. Took lots of naps. You are running on a pretty significant calorie deficit and major surgery is hard enough on your body on a typical diet.

Thank you. I should have figured that out lol. I was worried about my Iron levels. I was anemic before my surgery and my hematologist doesn't want me to take Iron pills. Nothing else would suggest it was low iron.

You could always run it by your team just to be certain if you have a history but I would try a nap in the mean time and see if it helps. I took one sometimes two a day for a couple weeks.

Very common to be experiencing a lack of energy & general lethargy from a combination of the surgery, healing & reduced caloric intake. We all heal & recover differently - just who we are - but if your body is saying rest you need to listen to it.

I say enjoy those nana naps while you can.

Congrats on your surgery.

Same here...I am so drained in the morning. It us not quite so bad since I started on soft foods yesterday, but my doctor told me I should be walking 30 minutes a day. I can barely make it around the yard once before having to sit for a while. I hope this will pass soon.

I was wondering about this too. I had my surgery on 9/3. The doctor also told me to walk 30 minutes a day and I have to rest after a shower. It’s so frustrating.

I am right there with you. I have no problem with walking but I have been cleared to use elliptical at gym and after 15 minutes I’m done. And don’t get me started about climbing stairs. I see a few more naps in my future.

Did you drink coffee before and stop for the surgery? I haven’t had surgery yet, but I know lack of coffee makes me tired. I’m going to start weaning myself off coffee about 3 weeks prior to surgery.

No, I stopped coffee about 3 months prior to my surgery. I just wanted to be prepared earlier. I think it is lack of calories. I'm trying to up those but it is so hard.

I know I have to try to push through this but I figured it took a while to get on the weight it will take a while to get rid of it. Naps are my life now.

Right! I hate that a shower tires me out. I want to enjoy it but most of the time I'm thinking about sitting down.

I hope it does too. Right now I'm stalled with my weight because I'm not burning off enough calories. I wish talking burned calories, I would be so skinny.

Thank you :) I'm going to give it a couple more weeks. I don't go anywhere so I can deal and try to get in better foods. I know I need to push liquids more. I'm not dehydrated but it wouldn't hurt.

      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?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
