It’s going to be 2 years post op for me in Jan next year..
I’ve been doing good when it comes to my Vitamins, nutrients, Protein overall food intake. (or so I think)
I have been dealing with dissociation and anxiety like crazy for a few months and have even gone to the hospital to see how I’m doing. All the tests i’ve gotten back have been nothing but positive and clear… yet I keep leaving my body with blank mind mumbling nonsense, constantly over emotional, and am tired of this feeling of regret.
I would love to know if anyone else is dealing or has dealt with this before? before or after surgery. It’s only been extreme after my surgery.. thank you to whoever has some advice.

I have anxiety issues anyway, and take supplements (ashwagandha and an L-theanine/GABA combo) for it. But you might want to make an appointment with a psychiatrist, because they're dab hands at fixing anxiety and dissociation, rather than relying on hospital tests.

The last two years have been insanely hard on everyone so it's no surprise that mental health care is becoming more urgent. Just take care of yourself.

I should’ve mentioned that I take those supplements too. Ashwagandha ksm66 , L-Theanine along with a Serotonin “brain food” that has Niacin, Zinc, L-Tryptophan.
but I’m definitely going to see the main experts with an appointment soon. I just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue.

You would benefit from seeing a psychiatrist, too. You may need medication for chronic anxiety issues. It can make a world of difference. Don't just ask your primary care physician. Psychiatrists know far more about psychotropic medication.

Are you talking to a psychologist? That helped me a bit. I am still dealing with regret but my anxiety has lessened. I was the same fine before surgery then a told wreck. I still have moments of tears but thats getting better too. I wish you well.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
